Nope at stock. GPU is 660 FTW in SLI.

Could be a bad stick of memory - you can try running Memtest, or just take on stick out at a time and see if it helps.

Now that I think about it, it's possible it could be a bad stick of ram. *shrug* I had to take a heat sink off one of the sticks to fit under my cooler, I might have knicked something important with my knife... lol Oh well.

Guess I got to decide if I want and overclock of 4.5 with 12 GB of ram or a 4.2 overclock with 16 GB of ram... Decisions, decisions...

Edit: Now that I think about it, when I put that stick in, I couldn't keep the 1.28 voltage I had for 4.5 overclock, it started BSODing on that voltage even though I had prime 95ed in for 12 hours before I put that stick in. I had thought since I had moved it from the top of my desk to under the desk that the less airflow was the reason I couldn't keep the voltage... Interesting. Still curious why the problem wouldn't show up in one overclock, but would show in the other.

Is it in all games or just 1 / a few?

What else do you use your comp for besides gaming? 12 gb of ram is plenty for gaming, recommended is usually 8, which is still plenty.

I tried Sim City, Crysis 3, and the Heaven Benchmarking tool. Sim City Crashed 4 times without letting me in at all, Crysis 3 times, and Heaven around 6 or 7. All of them ran fine when I dropped it back to 4.2
