Your CPU doesn't need any overclocking for games.

Got any best buy for full tower casing?

Yesterday just got my asus gtx 970 and seasonic X650. Was tested on battlefield 4. It freeze but the audio still running for while. Do u have any GPU stress test that I can try?

For few minutes of gameplay.

BF4 is terrible = Probably not your hardware - rather the server. Try something else. Google stress tests for the GPU. There are a bunch of them out there. If were you playing multi-player in BF4- try the single player campaign. I had nothing but issue on BF4 since the Beta and tried everything to fix it - random lags, freezes, audio freeze, etc. - But it is the only game I have issues with.

Grab eVGA OC Scanner. Also, use the edit button dude.

Just found the problem. I was running BF4 while using msi afterburner to monitor. My cpu was running at 80c.

Pretty normal for that CPU actually on stock cooler. Did you test specifically on your GPU first? Did you use MSI Afterburner or Coretemp to monitor CPU temps?

60-67c is fine, so that wouldn't cause Tomb Raider to crash. Grab Kombustor or OC Scanner and test your GPU.
