I have an sli set up, but when I play games (such Battlefield 3, Home Front) it freezes 5-15 min. into the game. The Following are my specs: 2-gtx480 nvidia graphic cards, 850watt power supply, 2600k processor, motherboard is an intel BOXDZ68BC1155LGA, 8 Gigs of ram running at mg-hertz

What do you think may be causing these crashes? I would appreciate any impute. Thanks in advance Chris.

Do I take it from the certainty with which you blame the SLI set-up that you don't/didn't have the same problem using a standard video card? What's the OS? Is the full 8gb of RAM being used (didn't think that was possible with a PC?) Have you run a memory check? Can you recover from the freeze or is it necessary to simply cut the power? Is the case suitable for the SLI set-up (because heat would be a prime suspect)?

If you get the feeling that we need a whole mess more detail to have any idea where to start with this then you'd be spot on!
