My System Specs

Does the system hardlock, or just the app?

VGA overclocked? Unstable vga ram can cause this.

The system hardlocks. I have to do a hard reset. No bluescreen, but things just stay on whatever game screen freezes. I suppose if it happens again, I'll wait for a while and see what happens. I also get a high pitched squeal in my headphones when this happens.

I've backed the RAM down to 1600 and the CPU to 3.8GHz so let's see what happens. I have been running 3.9GHz (206x19) and 1640MHz RAM 7-8-7-20
