I believe im using 13.2 beta 3(*?) as i have no use to update as i don't play Crysis 3/own games like far cry and such to majorly affect me.
Just curious what crash errors you were getting? Was it the same error as me?
I am running 13.2 beta 5 now and it seems OK.
I contacted Ncsoft tech support and they are insisting that it's my overclocked CPU that's causing the crash, even though I've had everything running stable for a month with no issues. According to tech support "the processor is just utilizing the built in Intel Turbo Boost option, which will raise the cores speeds based on load. This is a feature of the CPU model you purchased, marked with the (k). Any (k) series Intel chip is able to run faster than intended, automatically, without you doing or changing anything. This can often lead to freezing or crashing in applications not expecting this to occur."
I tried explaining that my cpu has low temps and enough voltage, passed P95 12 hour test, and has worked fine for quite a while before these random crashes, but nope they don't listen. They really need to train their tech support people better. Didn't even ask if I was using beta graphics drivers or anything. Just automatically assume that an overclocked cpu is unstable.
