  2. I am facing similar issue where Crysis freezes (no change in color) and pressing ctrl+alt+del recovers my system although games crashes.

    I tried running Furmark's Burn-In test for around 1.5 hours and it was fine; my CPU load during furmark is 99% and temperature was maximum 71C (FAN manually set to 50% speed). But still its hanging during games with-in an hour.

    I am waiting for some response also; although you can try running Furmark with full settings and see how it goes.

    My CPU is 1090T (overclocked) and GPU is Radeon HD 6970 (stock clocks)
  3. @OP, have you tried checking event viewer for errors with your display drivers? Try downloading driver sweeper, booting to safe mode, removing your drivers, run driver sweeper to clean them totally, boot into windows normally, download the newest drivers (non-beta versions) and install them.
