Hi everyone lately i have been having issues with my PC games. Every time i play for about 30min to hour my games CTD, today i just installed my new gtx 570 sc from gtx 550ti. When i had my 550ti, games would CTD alot faster, after this upgrade it take some time. I dont know know what the issue is? I reformatted this PC 2 times thinking it maybe might fix the issue and it still happens. Has anyone every experience this before?

Your PC is almost exactly like mine and I had the same issues for a long time.
First do not overclock, second update to the most recent drivers for GPU. If your game still crashes then next try to disable any Realtek devices like audio and network card, try one at a time. I replaced my NIC with an Intel gigabit NIC and a HT Omega audio card. After all that I still had very high CPU load on multiplayer so i switched to the Core i7 2700k which now is running 75% load and no more crashing, all that for BF3!

Thanks billj214 I will disable my sound card and and my nic card and post my results. I just purchased this i5 and it would suck if it can't handle Bf3 or any other game I have. I picked up a new psu and case for better air flow, I also picked up a sound card as well. I will be doing these changes over this week and I let you know how it goes.

besides installing fans randomly, have you checked the actual temperatures?

I have the GTX 560ti DIRECTCU ii TOP OC

and I had exactly the same issues.
The only way I fixed it, was to take the game back to where I bought it, and wrote a big bad complaint against EA.

DOA sticks, wrong timings, bad mobo slots. take out all the sticks except one and rerun the tests using each stick 1 by 1, then try different slots for with a stick that's working good.
