Blue screen during new games like Asssasin's Creed Revelations and BF3

I play BF3 and Assasin's Creed Revelations both on very good graphics and i run the games with no fps lag or anything. After around one hour of play my computer seems to make a bad sound and then blue screen. When playing other games such as SC2 or Leauge of Legends (Not so intensive games or new) there is no problems. Any ideas? I've checked the GPU drivers allready!

2 GTX 570s
intel i7 cpu x990 @ 3.47 Ghz
asus extreme III mobo
Corsair Vengeance Blu 16 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3

Thanks for any help in advance!!

some odd numbers there. your display mem seems low normally it will be about 3 times what you actually have so it should be around 7 gig...
looking at it , it looks like 1 of your gfx cards isnt working... or turned off.

when you next boot. at your first splash screen press f8 keep pressing it till you see the boot menu, turn off the auto reboot on error... so the nest time you get a bsod you can write down the error...
you want the short form error text and the 0x0000000 number... either google the results yourself, matching the short form error txt to your results ot post the error here and sum1 will give you either a fix or a link.

you could also try bluescreen view. it will give slightly more info than the normal bluescreen as it displays the actual dmp log info.

other things to check.
in bios make sure hpet(high precision event timer) is set to on and matches your o.s bit rate... your case set it to 64.
make sure that everything is as it should be by loading optimized defaults...(remember to set hpet) save and quit.
in windows get realtemp, gpu-z and cpu-z run all in the background while you play and keep an eye on the temps... create logs with the apps that allow it.
1 last thing. how big is the psu (make and model as well please)

SLI setup gives heat issues. Try checking both gpu cards temp during intense gaming especially Assassin's Creed cause the gpu card tends to go hot on that game.

I will try all of these things in 4 days when i get back from a trip and will then reply to you. As to the psu it is the cooler master 1000W silent pro PSU. Link here:

Thank you so much for your help and i will write back to you shortly!!
