Hyper Transport Sync Flood Error?
I would like to start a place on the Blog for questions and answers, aka a forum for all questions about hardware/software, compatibility, over clocking, errors and general PC questions, hopefully in the near future. But for now we’ll just rock out on the main page. Ok, my issue… I upgraded my computer after Christmas, now my specs are:
MOBO: ASUS M4A78T‑E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD MOBO
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 995 Black Edition 3.2GHz 125W
RAM: GeIL 2GH (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1333 (PC3 10660)
Video Card: GeForce 8800 GT 512MB
I haven’t noticed until about a month ago, but I started to have random crashes (of course while gaming). The computer restarts and gives me the error message, “A Hyper Transport Sync Flood Error occurred on your last boot”. And of course my game is rudely interrupted. The jest of this that I’m getting from other forums, basically from www.tomshardware.com and www.overclockersclub.com is that the power being supplied to the CPU and or RAM is not enough and causing this error. It has been recommended in other forums that I overclock the CPU and possibly the memory too. Another forum states to go in the BIOS and turn off AMD’s cool and quite feature, which should bump up the power/heat as well, eliminating the error. Also I am getting info that it is a MOBO problem, that my ASUS board needs a driver update? I’m gonna start with turning off the cool and quiet feature under the BIOS, seems like a safe bet to start with, but any suggestions would be helpful (as I have never overclocked and am worried about frying something)… Thanks.
