A list of reasons I have had FreeBSD freeze on me.

- Bad memory
- Dead CPU fan
- Dead PS fan (not enough case ventilation)
- Bad memory on a RAID controller
- Lack of wt-cache on a RAID controller (no battery)


I would have to say that the memory is going to be the biggest culprit.

It was a power fault, which I upgraded a 300w psu to a 550w and it has no problems when it comes to power.

Did you establish that the old PSU was faulty? Or was it just a matter of "try this one, oh it works now!"?

This is not criticism. I'm merely curious.
