If I overclock just slightly, it freezes on any game after about 2 minutes.  Does anybody know what I could be doing wrong??

    If you can't overclock slightly then it sounds like you lost the chip lottery, or you may need a better psu. No overheating and freezing when not overclocking?

    Do you have the base model or a factory overclocked model? What is the model and age of your PSU?
