I just recently bought an EVGA GTX 560 superclocked so overclocked right form the factory. Nothing else on my system is overclocked at all so this is the only potentially unstable component due to overclocking. I get this random freeze every here and there and have to hard restart to unlock. It doesnt happen very often but it for some reason only happens when im on google. Idk what else it could be other than the overclock since my gtx 260 i just upgraded from didnt have these problems. thoughs?

This happened to me with an MSI 560ti. It only happened very occasonaly using a web browser on google or BBC iplayer.

If you are using Mozilla Firefox, go into Mozilla's options and disable hardware acceleration and it fixed it for me.

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

You GPU comes pre-overclocked from manufacturer, so, should be 100% stable, in that way, the problem can be temps or PSU.
