im having problems with my games freezing after 5 minutes of playing. i overclocked my cards and ran 3dvantage and it seems stable but doesnt seem to work playing games. could my power supply not be big enough for my set up. i also tried to up the cpu to 3.2ghz but it would never restart with that setting.



i7 920 2.66 overclocked to 3.00ghz

just curious... are both of those GTx 260's Core 216?


also, just an idea, the problem can be in Dx10. 3dmark vantage uses dx10 but all of your games might be using Dx9. What games have you tested?
