My System Specs

Default

I rejigged the OC. Instead of 206x19 I went to 196x20 and that seems to have worked for a while with no crashing.

The other thing I did was turn the fans up to 100% instead of 80%. I know my airflow is crap so maybe even 80% wasn't enough on the cards.

I'll give it a good run when I get home from dinner and see what happens.

EE, I understand the Crysis thing, but Warhead seems fine while FEAR is the game that's freezing on me right now. Crysis wouldn't start so I uninstalled it.

I'm also going to try what Dave says and check out my DX. With all these different games trying to install DX, that could be a problem too. I know FEAR won't install unless you install DX9c with it.

PS: Thanks to all who've chimed in to help so far!

Bleh...

The 20 multi is definitely not an option. 3.9GHz 206x19 is stable in any test I throw at it. 196x20 crashes during the first five LinX runs. I'm going to try 186x21 now.

Ok...triple post here.

Looks like the RAM might have been the culprit. Just did an hour at 186x21 with no problems.

I'm an idiot.

My HDMI cable wasn't plugged in all the way on my monitor.
