Hey all, with my current rig, I've been gaming on it but lots of games tend to crash, I first noticed it in Dirt 3, then Batman A.C, F.E.A.R. 3, Need For Speed: The Run, and more.
[I'm using Fear 3 as an example]
What will happen is that the game will just go to a black screen with the sound still running and eventually give me the whole "needs to be closed" thing from Windows 7, or I'll end the process myself using Task Manager.

Take a look at this thread as is seems to be a similar issue: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/327231-33-game-crashi...

Specs:
CPU: Intel - Core i7 2600k @ 3.4GHz
RAM: 8GB Dual Channel 1300MHz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 1536MB (Gigabyte)
MOBO: Intel DP67BA - LGA1155
HDD's: 2 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black
SSD: Corsair Force GT 120GB (SATA3)
Optical Drive: LG - GH22NS70
OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit
Case: CoolerMaster HAF X RC-942
Monitor: Benq G2450H 24"
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 (700 Watts)

Extra Details:
Everything inside the case is all connected correctly (power to GPU, GPU to PCI port etc.)

As recon-uk stated in the other thread, it could be the voltage of the GPU, so I already tried increasing it by .25mv but it did not make it any better.

I'm up to following his BIOS settings but, will it fix it? Is it safe to do considering that was for an 850W PSU and mine is just 700W?
All drivers are updated and BIOS is latest version (Same issue on old drivers and BIOS)

Yeah, I said It didn't happen on old drivers or new ones (uninstalled drives when I put new ones on)

i would look at the ram ie it timming and see if the mb read it right. if it looks like it did i would up the voltage on the ram by a little and see if that help. I would also run memtest on your ram to see if it fine.
