PC not running as it should be. Need HELP!

  Swagrid 18:41 02 Dec 2018


I've been building this quite high end PC for a few days and have finally finished it.

There were some ups and downs but I made it happen.


CPU; Intel - Xeon E5-2650 V4 2.2 GHz 12-Core Processor

CPU Cooler; Deepcool - CAPTAIN 240EX RGB WH 153.04 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

Motherboard; Asus - X99-DELUXE II ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard

RAM; G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

SSD; Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

HDD; Western Digital - Red Pro 4 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

GPU; Gigabyte - GeForce GTX Titan X 12 GB Video Card x2

PSU; Cooler Master - V1000 1000 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Operating system: Microsoft - Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit

Case; Lian-Li - PC-O8WX ATX Mid Tower Case

I have installed windows and made it completely up to date.

Now the problem I am having is that I cant seem to make it run properly.

Something is wrong with my PC and I cant find out what.

First off:

When installing some programs (not even big ones) my PC just freezes, I have to force quit the program in order for it to function again.

Which means I am never able to install it.

The freezing happens quite often.


My benchmarks are good, but can be much better.

As I have said I am still kind of a noob at building PC's.

I am pretty sure I have installed everything properly, temperatures are fine and drivers should be up to date.


When I try to use Google Chrome, It says that I am not connected to the internet, while using others browsers at the same time these seem to work fine.

Tried reinstalling it multiple times, ran it in incognito mode, deleted all extensions, but nothing seems to work.

I hope you guys can help me figure out these problems.

If you need any more info, I would be so happy to provide this for you.

Since I have contacted my local PC repair shop.

And they asked 85 euros only for diagnosing the problem and 50 euro/hour for fixing it.

Feel free to reply on here or pm me.

I will respond ASAP, because I want to fix these problems fast.

Thank you in advance for trying to help!

Ok, so firstly can I ask is the screen freezing or the application/installer?

You can make sure your Ethernet connection driver is up-to-date by going into Device Manager > Network adapters > right click "Intel Ethernet Connection" > Driver > Update driver

Also, just to see if you're having a chrome issue that others have had, can you check to see how your CPU behaves in task manager when chrome freezes?
