Max render freezes when on Core 2 Quad
on Aug 22, 2008 at 5:02:27 am

I have just switched from a Core 2 Duo cpu to a Core 2 Quad cpu. While the speed and performance is miles better, Quad hangs every few frames when I render animation.So either I stay up all night rebooting the machine or I switch back to Core 2 Duo, which renders with no problems except that it is slower.

Has anybody come across issues like this?
What is the cause?

Thanks in advance

Im on a q6600 and have experienced no such issues. Were there other components you changed when you upgraded? RAM springs to mind but no, i have not experienced this problem.

Thank you Abhijyot Singh

For the response.Can you take a peek at the following configuration
and spot something that is not appropriate or wrong?

Ram? I still get the freeze.
