    Hi, I need some help with this...whenever I play memory hog games (TESIV:Oblivion, namely), I can play the game 2-3 minutes and then it suddenly freezes and hangs there for a few seconds and then restarts my computer... I hear the motherboard voice say "System failed due to CPU overclocking"...

    This started happening about 2-3 weeks ago...now, I haven't modified my computer in any way at all for the past year, so what's up with this? I don't overclock my settings, either. My graphics card is the modified 3rd-party Sapphire Radeon ATI X800XT, and I think that's overclocked right out of the box, yet it's given me no problems in the past....

    Any ideas?
