Heavy network/disk activity crashes on GA-EP45-UD3LR

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On an otherwise fantastic 10.8.2 install, I get intermittent crashes (freeze) and kernel panics (more rare, but there have been a few).

These crashes seem to be brought on by heavy disk activity, like downloading at 1MB/s or copying large amounts of data from drive to drive.


I can't seem to find any crash logs. Where should I be looking for these? Are there settings I need to turn on to have them generated?

In early Tiger days I have a Epox i865 motherboard, the same situation. Problem was... capacitors near Processor (6pcs) was blown up.

I have also EP45-UD3LR, the capacitors on the motherboard is obviously High Quality ones... weird if there is the problem.

I use it rarely and with SL10.6.8, I don't remember similar problems (yet :)). But this model is produced in 2008, there is possibility of capacitor problems.

      as the title indicates, i'm having a lot of trouble getting high sierra working on my pc
      i created a 10.13 installer usb, booted into its installer through clover installed and even problemlessly transferred my files from my 10.12 install over to 10.13, but yet i can't boot into it
      in the attached image you can see where precisely it locks up (it might be important to note that DSMOS never arrives during the boot sequence (or at least the part of the boot sequence that actually happens before it does locks up))
      one thing i find weird is the fact that my 10.12 install (which is on another partition of the same drive that 10.13 is installed to) still boots with functioning sound despite me having completely removed applealc.kext from my clover install
      my config.plist is here: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1RjfaLZ9zqT-N12kZXbX26xvC0QzMSBSZ(putting it on google drive because this website apparently doesnt want me to upload config.plist files, god knows why)
      i'm running clover 4297
      my specs:
      intel core i7 3770
      gigabyte geforce gtx 760
      16gb ram
      256gb sandisk ssd
      2tb seagate sshd
      750gb western digital
      1tb western digital
      i'm pretty much at my wit's end here so i'd be glad if anyone knew what the hell is going on

      Hi, I install clean high sierra on SSD, the iconservicesagent keeps on bogging down the system while eating up all the memory in a few seconds and then filling up my OS drive (an SSD) with swap space. I can force quit it in Activity Monitor, and I need to do it several times, before I can use my Mac again.

      I happen to internal and external hdd with custom icons in videos, there are not many system utilities ready for High Sierra, but deleting caches does not help anything.
      The Finder works on the main disk, but upon entering another HDD the iconservicesagent starts to function and blocks the computer completely.

      With the 27-inch iMac me the same happened, is a disaster!!

      the solution they give me in apple care is to reinstall the system from 0, I have already done it 2 times and the problem persists, that you have made apple, you have no solution for this?

      High Sierra disaster, with macos saw not the problem of ICONSERVICESAGENT

      I have been running into the same issue for some time now when trying to boot Mac OS 10.12.6. Attached is a picture of the crash. I have a good feeling it has to do with Kaby Lake graphics but I have attempted several fixes for those issues. Any help would be greatly apprecieted.
