Been trying to diagnose these abrupt crashes in BF3 (hard lock requires a reset) - I keep blaming the GTX Titan, then I blame the game, then I blame our cats.

I haven't figured it.... till I saw someone mention "disable your page file" - hmmm that seems like a dumb idea but w/e I got 8 gigs of ram lets see what it does.

Well no difference just like that I'm suddenly having no issues. Hmm so is the M4 bad? I start investigating- I realize that somehow all of the intel rapid storage drivers/services are turned off- enabled those- and checked the layout on the sata ports for this P8z77-m pro- DOH!

Had my Crucial M4 plugged into a Sata 3 port for this whole time...

Guess i'll kick the page file back on and see if I get this bug again.
