Yes - it was just the CPU overheating. For some reason Dishonoured stressed it in a way that other games hadn't. I replaced the CPU cooler with a bigger one, which made a difference, and also set up SpeedFan to alert me with a noise when I was within a few degrees of the temperature that seemed to cause crashes, so I could alt-tab out of the game. Not ideal - and when I have the time and funds I'll rebuild with a bigger focus on airflow - but it allowed me to finish the game.

Good luck!
