Okay so I play BF3 as well. Some key questions missing here: What resolution are you playing at? External Monitor? What is the Frequency (60HZ or 120Hz) your playing at. Since it does start up and does 'play for 30 minutes' it depends on many factors, as you may be overloading a card that drivers may need to be updated, what is causing the BSOD (what dll, etc... ??) could be your sound card failing as far as we know?

Need specific details to help

Yeah sounds like my rig. So when you set the graphics level in BF3 what is it set to? 1920x1080x120Hz? I have to drop down to 100Hz to be stable all the time else the screen blanks out trying to reset itself. Now I will say I am quite aware you shouldn't try that level over HDMI 2.0, only HDMI 3.0 can handle that level, which NVIDIA / ATI don't put out HDMI 3 connections normally (they defer to DVI-D connections instead). You could be overbuffering the HDMI making it fail - BSOD when trying on that. What happens if you try playing at a lower resolution? Do you run HW Temps while playing the game? What do you get (I am usually 80C)?

Last thinkg I might consider is that your running a AMD chipset but a NVIDIA card, that could be a conflict when pushing that hard. Normally people running NVIDIA stick with Intel, and only keep ATI on AMD, as that avoids conflicts in the driver levels (historically companies purposefully gone out of the way to NOT make a effort at cross compatibility, to force customers to migrate to thier product lines exclusively so this may be the problem with this case too and not identifyable on the surface).

I think I might have figured it out, thinking about it, it all started when I decided to turn vsync off. I never got bsod until I did that. could that have something to do with it? other than that i'll try setting it to 100hz. i'm not at home right now to test, but i'll update soon.

I was reviewing other threads I answered and a similiar problem also came to mind. HDMI carries audio over the cabling, where as DVI-D does not. The person updated the NVIDIA Audio Driver that is part of the Video card... you might want to update the Audio Driver or disable it too and see if that changed thing. If it isn't updated enough to the current state, then the HDMI may try to still communicate the audio but then futz it up with the incorrect Audio Driver. It worked for them, but that be my other suggestion.
