    so this weird problem happened after i installed new water cooling kit from EK for CPU+GPU


    basically the problem is when i put my mobile phone close to my PC i hear the same noise below in my Headphones (that are connected to SB AE-5) for 2 seconds then the system Freezes which forces me to force shutdown my PC

    I get that interference too, when a call or text is coming in.If it's just laying there, there's none.
    Never has it caused a freeze though.

    Used to happen with the old GSM network, but never since using 3G/4G data

    But the question is, how does it make a system crash? That's way more unexpected...

    Doesn't sound like it's your phone if it crashes an hour after you put it next to the PC

    Can you make it crash instantly by calling the phone while it's next to the PC?

    What makes you think it's the phone causing it then? If it's not instant when you call it, and it can take up to an hour after putting the phone near the PC, it sounds more like it's a problem with the PC and not phone related at all?

    Have you tried keeping the phone out of the room completely for a few days and see if the crashing stops?

    i don't need to take the cell phone out of the room , just put it in the 1st drawer in my desk which makes the phone below the PC , doing that never allowed the system to Freeze

    turned off Bluetooth+Wifi from the Mobo bios and ran a timespy stress test with my phone right next to PC and nothing happened


    hopefully this is the problem all along

    So either a problem with BT/WiFi on the mobo, or the phone is somehow managing to interfere and cause instability with those radios

    Well, unless you desperately need bluetouth, it can be avoided, but wifi... were you using wifi as your connection?
