Far Cry 3 black screen

My Far Cry 3 freezes usually after about 3-5 mins of gameplay. The screen usually turns black and the audio either repeats or turns off, or sometimes continues. Any ideas what this could be? I am thinking a graphics card issue/driver issue.

Specs for reference:
CPU: Intel i7-3820
Mobo: Asus Rampage IV X79
PSU: 600 watts
GPU: MSI 660 ti PE
RAM: 16gb corsair vengeance
SSD: Hyperx 240gb
HDD: WD Velociraptor

  1. A long shot but have you checked your temps?
  2. Do any other games have issues? Whats the PSUs make & model?
  3. Thanks for the responses,
    I constantly monitor my temps, and they never get past 40-45 degrees. I have a 360mm triple rad, so I would say that is more than enough for just a CPU.

    @Simon12, I am able to play RaceRoom, Skyrim (torrented), fallout new vegas (torrented), Black Ops 2, and Garry's mod perfectly. The only two games that I encounter crashes with are Far Cry 3 and Saints Row 3, both of which are running on Steam.
