Hey guys! Having some strange problems today with battlefield 3. First off, some background. I stopped playing battlefield when skyrim came out, and before skyrim came out, battlefield was working perfectly. I got my new Ultrasone 550s in the mail about a week ago and played a couple games to test them out and battlefield 3 was flawless then. I decided to play some battlefield today, and i have been getting a strange error after playing for about 10 minutes.

What Happens

i play for ten minutes
my computer completely freezes (no sound, no movement, and no hard drive light)
and it just hangs there until i manually turn off my PSU or unplug something. NO BSOD
I look in the event viewer in windows and i get the following error

What i know/have tried

It is not my temperatures. I watch them on my second monitor while i play. my graphics cards are both in the mid 70s and the processor cores are below 70. hyper threading is off. i switched my power cable with no luck. i got rid of my overclock and restored stock speeds, still have the same problem. This does not happen in any other game. I have tried skyrim, crysis warhead, and battlefield bad company 2, and starcraft 2. I have tried reinstalling battlefield 3. No luck. I have run 5 cycles if intel burn test, comes up fine with no problems. I have also ran Furmark Benchmarks and everything is still fine. I guess the only thing i havent tried is a memtest, however if it was memory i would be seeing problems elsewhere and probably be getting some sort of blue screen.

What MIGHT be wrong

The only thing i can think of at this point is that it might be my power supply because i am not actually getting a blue screen. but i find that highly unlikely since its a corsair 750 TX and its barely a year old, AND it doesnt happen in any other games. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Since it passes all the stress test, temps are good and all other games play fine. I would be getting in touch with the game people support for help. It sounds like a problem in their software as regards your computer.
