    For some reason any game I'm trying to play crashes during game play.
    I checked my memo it's ok, I upgraded my gf to 4870x2, updated my BIOS on Asus Striker Extreme, installed all updates on my Vista SP1 32bit - no luck.

    Medieval Total War 2 Kingdoms - worked at the beggining but later started to crash, now crashes every time enemy attacks me.

    Bioshack crashes before it even starts.

    GRID crashes during game play or load screens.

    FEAR + expansions crashes during game play.

    I reinstalled Vista many times no improvement.

    could my motherboard be bad? or my E6700 o/c to 3.2 Ghz.

    I'm so frustrated I'm ready to throw my comp out of window.

    What's the full spec's of your computer? It might be that your PSU isn't giving enough power

    Sounds like a memory problem. But could be anything really, I'd run some different tests to try to isolate the issue.

    Tried without the soundcard?

    TBH it sounds like not enough vcore to me, as soon as the cpu comes under load it crashes, is the oc prime95 stable??

    you could reset everything to stock, run memtest86+, prime95 etc to stress the components. If everything is OK then reinstate the oc and run stress programmes again.

    Other than that it may be a driver issue, latest CATs?? proper removal of the old NVIDIA drivers, PhysiX ? etc.

    I had that problem,and after 6 months of trying to figure out what it was,I finally stepped my OC down a notch,and that fixed it.This was on another system...

    Sounds like either bad ram or an unstable overclock.
    My guess is it's the overclock, try running your games at stock settings and see what happens.

    ^I agree, theres no point trying to determine that kind of problem while still keeping an overclock

    Just get some new RAM from the store; if that isn't the issue then just return it. That OC on the CPU is very reasonable - I doubt that is the issue.

    Go into the BIOS and check voltages, sometimes the MOBO doesn't load the proper RAM voltages. Also if it has loaded the proper voltage bump it up by 0.05v. I have mine at 2.15; that little bit has helped me.

    Oh jesus christ just take that OC off, make everything at stock and go from there. Just because its a reasonable overclock doesnt mean its not the problem.

    Agreed, you can do all the testing in the world, but if you don't isolate the testing from OCing you're just wasting time.

    Could also be a bad CPU as well. Try stressing the cache with Everest and if it fails it's likely the CPU. My E6700 just failed and I was having the same issues. Every game would crash, lots of BSODs, etc. I changed processors and everything is ok again.

    You can download a trial version of Everest that will allow to stress the cache I believe.

    It might be something with sound drivers... I had something similar with meadieval 2.
    I have this thing in my backhead that sound made it crash.. Just cant recall how i fixed it? Maybe it was moving from HD -> X.fi

    Thx guys for all the replys.

    As a upgraded my BIOS all the clocks were reset to original values.

    I think 90% it is my motherboard. After the BIOS upgrade Medieval Total War now freezes instead of crashing.

    I will stress my CPU to see if it is ok.

    Sounds like a memory issue now, run memtest86+ on your memory while you're at it (one module at a time)

    That's 2 votes for memory...
    You need to download Memtest86+ and give each stick a run individually'

    Yea, the memory is definitely the next logical step to take. Try using just one module at a time and alternate slots. If any one stick gives you issues then replace it. If any one slot gives you trouble then try not to use it, and if all different configurations give you the same issues then its definitely not the memory. Running MemTest is also a good idea
