@tecmo34 - Ah okay, thanks very much for that, puts my mind at ease a little
@dipankar2007ind - CPU usage during the test was full 100% load, but I thought that would be fairly normal considering the nature of the test.
But i'm still curious as to why BC2 is acting up in this way.
Edit: Also, just as a side note; this problem occurs with NO other games that I play - Black Ops, MW2, GRID, Dragon Age etc etc; none of them freeze up in this way, just BC2. I've also read that BC2 uses much more of the processor than other games do, and upon drawing this connection, I was worried about the CPU itself.
