Z170-GAMING K3 display and sound issues
« on: January 24, 2017, 11:11:31 am »
Just built my PC the other day, Z170-GAMING K3, i5 6600k, 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133MHz (XMP at 2400MHZ), using integrated graphics for now. I'm getting random freezes that cause massive artifacting on the display and audio crackling as well. When this happens I have to restart the PC using the power button to fix the issue, but then it is fine for a short while and then happens again. The picture attached is the closest I can find on the internet to what I am experiencing. Any suggestions? Not sure if this is a motherboard issue, CPU issue or driver issue?

Hello,

What is the OS? Did you install Windows from scratch?

Is the CPU temperature alright?
 
Move the memory to other free slots to check it makes different.

Have you tried running the memory at factory speeds? These boards are finicky with ram.
