Been playing BF3 for.... 9 months now.... no probs, none. Never crashed, ran smooth, seriously- zero problems.
Starting a month or so ago, like many other players, the game just freezes with the "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" sound loop...... sofa king annoying.
I've been watching cpu and gpu temps, all seem fine.. I reverted to a previous nvidia driver.. no difference. I turned off the motion blur, vsync and AA as many reported would help... it didn't (and man, does it look like crap w/o AA...) I finally reinstalled windows and bf3- game kept freezing... But then after I cleaned out all the temp files and did some housekeeping after the re-installs, it started working great last night- played for several hours without a hiccup (this was with AA 4x even).
But this morning. I can't run the game for a minute without it freezing....
Does anyone have any idea what's happening?????? I'm about to give up and just go see what BFvietnam looks like on this machine.........

that was because of the patch, several players have reported it already. DICE said it would be fixed in the next patch that's on tuesday, just wait untill then.
