Crysis is hands down the most system intensive game on the market right now, its not suprising that it stalled out your PC on its most intense level. What graphical settings and resolution are you playing this on? Also 7 hours in prime is not stable, run it for 12 hours, run Blend and Small FFTs atleast 9 hours each (blend could help test your ram..) id also run 20 rounds of Intel Burn Test to check and see what your temps are looking like when fully loaded. Id also be running atleast a few hours of memtest to check your ram, although im not convinced that that is the issue, I think your system was just running on a razors edge and the more intensive level just pushed it over that edge. 44c idle seems a bit high and Id like to know what your load temps are like on that CPU.
