Ok so..I have had my intel e5200 OC'd to 3.81ghz over the past year along with 4gb of this ram on a p45 gigabyte mobo. Suddenly since playing BF3 recently until this latest update  my computer would constantly freeze/loop audio requiring me to have to manually boot during or at the end of matches. After the first time my clocks got put back to default(2.5mhz). Ever since no matter what I set the FSB to it will not accept anything above stock 200mhz. Multiplier is cap'd out at 12.5X...

Anything to help or point me in the right direction as to what the problem could be would be much appreciated.

first i would run memtest and check that ram. 2nd I would say it's the cpu. sometimes they loose their potential to overclock. I've found some of mine definitely degrade from higher voltages over time

Hmm, i did try testing with Prime95 last week seemed to be fine, albeit only half an hour run. However sticks 1 and 2 of the four are from 2009.. I never touched the voltage when I set the OC however.. so it shouldnt have degraded theoretically.

Its weird everything runs normal, even playing BF3 but i can only do so on stock clocks.  
I was more leaning towards the ram no longer liking the FSB set at like 305 or so.
