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:


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 and 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.

    I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this website.

    I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade content by
    you in the future as well. In truth, your creative writing
    abilities has motivated me to get my very own website
    now 😉

    i honestly love your own writing style, very remarkable,
    don’t quit as well as keep creating mainly because it simply just worth to look through it,
    excited to look at far more of your current well written articles, have a good day 🙂

    Glad to hear it and happy to help:D

    Ok, gamed for like 4 hours, everything stable and GOOD!!! Thanks for da advice.

  8. DeathProof - March 23, 2010 5:28 pm

    Yea, I figured out it is a 500 w power supply. I’m not having random crashes after changing the timing anymore. So far so good, we’ll see 🙂

  9. PimpmasterF - March 23, 2010 5:18 pm

    If your PSU is under 500 you severely need to upgrade, the 8800 GPU is a power hungry biotch and youll the system requiremnet is a 400w with 26a on the +12v rail but I would go no less then 500w to be safe.

  10. DeathProof - March 23, 2010 2:43 pm

    Ok, so I changed the Timing and the voltage to the RAM, the way the MOBO recognized them was f***ed, don’t know exactly why that would be, but I should know in not too long if this fixes problem.

  11. DeathProof - March 23, 2010 8:07 am

    Yea, I knew u’d know what I meant 🙂 Wanted to see if you’d catch that one, lol.

  12. thsoundman - March 23, 2010 7:51 am

    BTW there is no such thing as a AMD 995 it’s a AMD 955

  13. thsoundman - March 23, 2010 7:50 am

    I’m fairly certian that the PS i gave you is under 500 watts. Can you confirm the wattage of the power supply and also what brand it is? if your power supply is underpowered you can ruin the parts in your PC including the PS and mobo. Trying to increase voltage and power output will only make the problem worse.

  14. DeathProof - March 23, 2010 7:37 am

    Thanks for the advice. I’m gonna try to set timing and voltage of RAM in BIOS according to its specifications. And yes I still have that power supply u gave me, hopefully I’ll be able to fix the restart with some tweaking, rather than replacing. Will let u know how it goes.

  15. thsoundman - March 22, 2010 9:39 pm

    You might have a crappy power supply? Did you replace that power supply I gave you way back when? How many watts is it? If it’s only a 350 you need to replace it.

  16. PimpmasterF - March 22, 2010 9:13 pm

    You really shouldnt have to OC, its a little backwards isnt it to OC from stock to get stability? (but if it works then happy day) Anyway, look at your memory voltage in your BIOS, you may need to manually set it to its proper voltage as most MOBO’s will auto set the RAM Voltage to 1.8 or so. ALso check your memory timings, sometimes manually setting the timings can help. You could also try bumping the CPU voltage a tiny bit. Just go to amd the manufacturer site of your RAM (or look at the ram itself) and check what the max/recommended voltages are. Hope that helps some 😀
