System lockup

Hey guys and girls,

Whenever I play Battlefield BC2, after about half an hour the whole system locks up. I originally had my Phenom II 955 running at 4ghz, and thought that was the problem. So i dropped it to 3.6 and it still locked up. Ran everything stock, absolutely everything, and it STILL locks up. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game multiple times and it still does it. This is online of course.

Phenom II 955 now at stock
4gb DDR3 kingston 1333
WD caviar Black 750gb
Gigabyte UD5 890fx
HIS radeon 6950 1gb

Any suggestions as to whats going on?

Cheers, TimmyBazza

  2. ive cleared the CMOS, and ive been using a custom fan profile ever since i built the system so the card doesnt go over 65 degrees. The ram is fine and ive already uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Im downloading the newest Catalyst driver (11.8) and am gonna see if that helps. BTW cpu temps never go over 50 so im sure thats fine.
