    ok guys after reformatting my comp i just tried playing counterstrike 1.6 and for some reason after about 30 seconds of gameplay my comp suddenly freezes and i have to reset! i thought this may be something to do with a overclock on my cpu so i changed everything back to stock and still get the same thing!

    any ideas on what could be causing the lock ups?
