have you tried turning the overclock down. Some users have reported that they had to reduce the overclock on Cysis 2 for some reason for it to be stable.

Well out of all the games i own, this one is the only one that does it, even the orginal crysis in all its glory doesnt crash my drivers, nor does furmark, and i fold nearly 24/7 and that doesnt error, when its just the one game that does it, makes you wonder...

Hey people, i think i found the problem,

Found out my memory doesnt like being clocked between 1002 and 1008, causes small system hangs but at 1000mhz or 1010 to about 1040 its fine anymore and it doesnt like it, this cards default is 1002 mhz, bit random (blame asus) also the gpu doesnt like being between 990mhz and 1ghz, i can go over a ghz, or below 990, just between 990 and 1ghz it causes problems no matter what voltage?
Crysis 2 is VERY sensitive to any overclocking on the gpu, no matter how small...

I had this same problem with my 8800, it didnt like runing at 600mhz all games caused problems, til i got past 610mhz.

stupid card
