having problems with my setup, maybe video drivers? I just would like to fix the problem... game freezes, system freeze. I think its because my pc overheats... I OC'ed 20% not much, even If I dont OC, still freezes. so... If its my main board, cpu, gpu, power supplies? I'd like to replace ASAP. maybe water cooling? do you think I should do I clean re-install of OS? any suggestions, please do tell...

P.S. - I have tried the newest nvidia drivers with no success. I read that 81.89's are best for the 6800.

Did you make sure to clean out the old drivers with Driver Cleaner Pro before installing new ones?

I don't think it's overheating... but if you want to make sure I would check out temperatures.

This could also be Window's fault, or any number of programs for that matter

When does it freeze exactly? Only when youre gaming? And does it happen with every game?

yes I did, installed and re-installed several drivers. restarting, using driver cleaner b4 each install.

I think its overheating because the only time it doesn't freeze is when I place a small bedroom fan right next to my pc, case open.

yes, it only freezes when gaming.

Sense your system is hard-locking when not overclocked, I'd suggest for you to run Memtest86 while you are sleeping. (Also do what people have suggested above) If you wake up and see red, at least one of your sticks is faulty. If you see red errors soon after starting the diag, then at least the hunt for the bad stick will be easy. If you get red errors, shutdown the system, unplug it, remove one of the sticks, plug back in the power, boot to memtest and rerun. Keep doing that until you get no more red errors to determine which sticks are bad.

thank you all for the suggestions and fast replies... downloaded the memtest and speedfan. will run tests tonight. I'm just going a bit crazy here... my pc never freezed b4. I'm thinking I jacked something up by improper OC'ing. so you guys are thinking it due to faulty memory? I will pay a visit to local pc hardware store and buy some memory... you guys think it can be the cpu amybe or even my gpu?
