Game crashes, OC issue?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I was just playing Mass Effect 2, and about 5 minutes into the first action sequence, I got a nasty crash where my system froze completely and I couldn't do anything but hit the power switch. The screen was frozen and my speakers were making a horrible loud noise. I was wondering if it is my overclock on my 2500k (4.4ghz@1.34v), although I have played other games for plenty of hours with no issues. Could be my GPU (8800 GTS, maybe ME2 is too much for it to handle?), but that is not overclocked...any ideas?
