Exclamation 7900gt crashing while playing bf2

so i play bf2 for about ten minutes, pwning n00bz and whatnot, and then bf2 crashes to desktop. it didnt do this before i did the watercooling, and i just erased my voltmod, so wtf. this has happened every time. i cant pwn noobs for only 10 minutes at a time. the temp for the 7900gt after playing was 39c, so heat isnt a problem, i think. any help?

Just some suggestions.

I have/had the same problem ricochet. I think it was the old drivers that did it. I used to have old ones from the CD and it would crash. I liked the old ones though because hte loud fan never came on. but since i updated...no more crashes.

i updated drivers, but to no avail. i saw this guide on how to manually clean the card, like with paper towels and whatnot, and there was specific chemicals that were used. anyone have a link? i think that there might be some excess circuit writer material on my card, as well as dust. thanks
