Hey so as the title suggests my computer keeps freezing whilst playing games such as Arma and battlefield 3 and im trying to figure out why. Here are my specs:

Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Overclock: 25%
Radeon HD 7950 Sapphire 3GB Boost Edition Overclock: 10%
8 GB DDR3 1600MHz
1TB HDD
Win 7 64
DX11


Here is what i have tried so far to fix this problem:
- Virus scan
- Malware scan
- Registry clean
- Hardware test
- validating game cache on steam
- reset computer to factory settings

If anymore info is needed please ask. Thanks!

Your overclock may not really be stable. What about PSU? Lower you overclock and see if it makes a difference.

Hey well my PSU is a corsair tx 650w and i have tried to remove overclock but the game still crashes. Do you know of anyway to check if hardware is working properly in a more thorough way?
