It cant be your OC unless your chip is horrible. I am running 4.6 at 1.344 without problems. If you are crashing with the audio loop and the screen freezing, this is not your OC. Are you running MSI afterburner by chance? I hear this does it. Also, if you have a realtek audio driver, update that to the newest.

As for prime95, 5 hours isnt enough. I had it running for about 12 hours before my crashed and blue screened at a lower voltage, so 24 hours is usually a good indication of stability.

Are you on the latest Catalyst 11.6 drivers for your HD 6950? If you are, have you tried testing with previous drivers to see if the same issue occurs?

BTW, I am on the same board and processor as you, and I also have a hard time achieving stability above 4.6GHz. Not all chips overclock the same, and you might just simply be hitting a wall on your's. Have you tried the latest F5e bios? Found here: http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...beta-bios.html

IBT crashed almost instantly at 4.6ghz 1.380v. So much for stability. I will try now at 1.39

I am running afterburner. I will also try the driver update.

I am fairly confident its afterburner. Get rid of it completely. I think the driver update helped with crashes for me, but not the same one that you are having. It was MSI that got rid of that for me. I liked it as a tool, and hopefully BF3 wont have an issue with it.

my 2500k (one of the worst in the world) take 1.404 in cinebench, and 1.392 in prime 95 (at 4.5)

Yeah, I always ran both GPUs at stock and even ran furmark to test stability. BF:BC2 was the only game that caused the freeze. I'm certain it was my 6950s or their drivers because nothing else had changed in my system.

afterburner is fine, and is not going to affect any program that doesnt use the gpu like ibt or prime 95

I personally have not seen any problems with afterburner and bad company 2, although i have heard of them
