BF unstable/crashes (i5-760, 560ti + 4GB RAM)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I can't play BF3 for more than 30 minutes before the entire thing crashes :/ It's usually during intense moments, for instance it happened twice while in chase view in a jet and launching flares.

Here's my system:

P7P55D mobo
Core i5-760 (not overclocked, stock cooler)
GTX 560ti Hawk
4GB RAM

The game is installed an OCZ Vertex2 SSD.

I figured my system would be way good enough for the game. Perhaps not so? I play on high by the way.

Any tips? What am I missing? What should I upgrade? I'm willing to spend about 500 euros but since BF3 is the only CPU/GPU intensive task I do (I don't program or play other games or edit videos etc...) I'd be reluctant to...

Thanks

Well you're using a stock cooler. Probably overheat issues in my opinion. Also we would like to know your resolution on this game too. More likely you had a overheat issue cuz BF3 is quite demanding and i have no idea what settings you are setting in game graphics. Stock coolers suck for cooling i5 and i7 processors. Are you using the latest NVIDIA bf3 drivers up to date? You need to let us know what power supply and hard drive you have too.

Ooops sorry. Gaming at 1080p on the one screen.

I have the latest NVIDIA drivers too.
Power supply is an OCZ ModXtreme 600W, more than enough to handle the 560ti. Harddrive is the SSD I specified in the first post

My buddy had a similar problem in BF3 with a 560ti, he fixed it by underclocking his gpu by 50MHz on the core and shader. It is a odd fix for a odd problem, but it worked,

I can't do this The Hawk is overclocked to 950Mhz and it's got virtually no headroom. I wasn't able to take it to even 980Mhz without it crashing on BC2.

Hi,
With your system you should be able to easily run it on high smoothly. A more high end videocard would enable you to play it on ultra settings. Should you decide to upgrade, upgrade the videocard and 4gb of extra ram wouldnt hurt, as it's as cheap as it gets at the moment. Im getting me some more ram this week
About the crashes: I've had some fps drops and crashes on my rig when textures and/or MSAA were set to ultra/*4 so it's probably a memory issue. You might want to try to turn MSAA off.

No no, UNDERclock. Bring it down to 900Mhz or to stock clocks for the 560ti (whatever those are)

Nothing but problems with the 560 GTX TI's. I had a similar issue and had to RMA mine, my buddy had the same issue and he said he took his rig apart and put it back together, I'm guessing reseating the card fixed the issue. Make sure the PCI-E slot doesn't have dust in it and try reseating it.

Bump up the vcore on the gpu.

It solved all my issues.
