I know I have more questions than answers, but without more information, the problem is hard to diagnose.
RAM is at stock speeds using the XMP profile in the BIOS. I will try some RAM tests.

Error messages:

When BF3 locked up:

Faulting application name: bf3.exe, version: 1.6.0.0, time stamp: 0x511c9356
Faulting module name: atidxx32.dll, version: 8.17.10.514, time stamp: 0x52282b91
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x004434e8
Faulting process id: 0x69c
Faulting application start time: 0x01ceb4a3193d8cfc
Faulting application path: D:\Games\Origin\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\bf3.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\atidxx32.dll
Report Id: 3397004e-209b-11e3-bce8-bc5ff4573f6a

Also, less than 10 minutes earlier a WHEA event was logged.

I'll try disabling Crossfire... Bloody ATI.

sfc /scannow Came up with no errors.

Just a shot in the dark...sometimes when testing our overclock, we overlook the other steppings and concentrate on testing our max speed stability. You might be catching the WHEA at a lower multiplier, when the game is not pegged at 100% usage. You could try lowering your turbo and increasing your offset my the same amount, or roughly the same as they are .001 different steps.

Despite the error, I am still not convinced that the GPU is the faulting hardware, just because they rarely cause hard stops, but a WHEA error is a sure sign of a processing error, and voltage is usually the culprit.

Good idea, I'll try that.

I would run P95 longer then 10minutes to make sure its stable.

I'd run Prime for longer and you need to work on those temps a few c, because I bet it will hit 80c after an hour of Prime because some parts of the test will stress harder than other parts. That Vcore might also need to be bumped at 1.2v

I let it run for about an hour after my screenshot and had no errors. Max temp did hit 81c but I forgot to set my fans to max speed, I left it on my custom curve which limits the fans to 1250rpm for low noise. I'll run Prime again when I get home with the fans on max.

I'd run it for at least 6 hours and set the fans to full speed. Watch the temperatures closely. If it's all fine, you should be OK. Then just play BF3 max out for a few hours to confirm.
