Freezing during with multiplayer games

Hello all,

I'm pretty stumped with this one. My PC runs just fine whenever I play a single player game (which is what I'm usually playing), but for whatever reason in the two multiplayer games I play, BFBC2 and Mount & Blade Warband, I can play for anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes and then my PC will abruptly freeze. I've never had any problems with cooling in the past and I'm assuming this isn't related to an overheating issue, as I can play either of these games in singleplayer and not have an issue.

Nothing in my setup has changed over the past few months and as of last month or so, I was able to play BFBC2 without any freezing issues at all. I can't think of any programs I've installed recently that could maybe be related to this and I haven't made any hardware changes either. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Windows 7 x64
