Battlefield3 keeps crashing when loading?

Hi, when I'm loading BF3 to play online, my computer suddenly crashes to black screen. Sometimes when it crashes the cpu fan goes so loud so I checked the temperature as I load the game. The temp hits 50 Celsius and crash to black screen again. I have no clue what is going on. Please somebody help me.



My computer is..

Running on Window 7 64 bit
Inter I7-2600K
Nvida Geforce GTX 560
Asus P8Z68-V pro
12Gb of Corsair Vengence (ram)
120G of Corsair Force GT SSD

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling everything. What I mean by that is undownload Origin and Battlefield 3 completely (becareful sometimes Battlefield doesn't completely uninstal which means you have to hunt down the extra file) then redownload it. If that doesn't work contact Origin they will help you.
  2. it looks like you have ram from an older i series cpu and if thats the case your ram is probably causing problems. its probably 1.65 volt ram and i accidently ordered that voltage ram once and it cause all kinds of problems just like that.

    I checked the frequency and the spec of the RAM. I think it was design for the second gen intel cores. The ram has 1600hz frequency which fits into the motherboard too

    well what is the voltage that it is rated for? and why do you have 12gb? that will run in single channel mode and be slower.

    the voltage is 1.5V and I have 3 ram card that are 4Gb each
  6. Remove one of those sticks, and find your motherboard manual --> find the section about ram installation and see how you install the two, so they run dualchannel (It's most likely Dimm slot A1 and B1, but this depends on maker and model). The third stick is slowing everything down for you atm.
