The solution was ofcourse turning off the OC (thus lowering power requirements) and eventually changing the Psu. But as you guys were already discussing, this problem can also occur from a malfunctioning ram or even game (software) bugs. Diagnosing can be pretty tough. The best you can do is to try the memtest and also stressing cpu with p95-blend for more than 12 hours (some problems do come up very late, but DO NOT run furmark + p95 together for that long just test with prime95). Also do post the mem latency values you are currently using.
nothings oce'd as said before
and ram latencies are 9-9-9-24@1333mhz
and the freeze is not very frequent...it only happened thrice in 3 months..
ran memtest 86+ for 1 hour with no errors.........Edited by ghost_z - 4/2/11 at 8:33pm
