Intel® Desktop Board D525MW randomly freezes

Community Manager

Recent build with the specs listed bellow and latest version of Ubuntu randomly freezes. All drivers have been updated. Any ideas on what might be causing this?

Intel BOXD525MW Intel Atom D525@ 1.8GHz (Dual Core) BGA559 Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo

Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BC1067

Initial install was uneventful. Have built somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 computers so have some skill. However, I have mostly used AMD processors.

Hello Pika201,

We recommend using a fully compatible Operating System since Intel motherboards are not designed to support Linux distributions:

Test the system on a minimal configuration out of the chassis to narrow the issue also. Ensure memory is fully compatible with the system.
