A few of my games are crashing.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Here's my build:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zBdG

Quick rundown:

3570K CPU
MSI GTX 670 PE
Team Elite 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333 Mhz RAM

A list of games I play that crash after a certain time period:

Far Cry 3
Crysis 3
Tomb Raider

I understand that Tomb Raider has problems with Nvidia cards, but the other two games about why they crash really don't make sense. Crysis 3 seems to be the main culprit. Keep in mind although the list of my parts says I have G-Skill ram, I actually have Team Elite brand, and those have the same ram speed of 1333 Mhz.

The crash error in question is just simply a Windows pop-up that displays "(game name) has stopped working."

To troubleshoot the crashing issue with multiple games, I tested both of my RAM sticks by taking one out of my system and then playing the game while just using one stick of RAM. After using both RAM sticks one at a time, both RAM stick tests still resulted in a game crash from as little as 30 minutes of game time to an hour. The first test lasted one hour, but the second only lasted 30 minutes. Take note that on the second test, there was some very heavy stuttering the moment before the game crash.

I could probably eliminate the RAM sticks as the problem. Could GPU temperature also be a factor? I want to test this as well, but I'm not sure how to monitor GPU temperature while I'm in game, unless that's not possible and I would have to Alt Tab out of my game just to check the GPU temperature.

I thought I would post here in the Nvidia forum because my graphics card is a GTX 670 and it could be possible that it is just my graphics card that is the problem. I'm running the latest non-beta Nvidia drivers (314.07 I believe). I am not overclocking anything in my PC.

Far Cry 3 is known to have crashing problems. Have you changed any settings in U-Play for it? For me, it crashed if I had the in game interface disabled and closed out U-Play after starting the game.

I recommend you revert back to legacy drivers, my msi 670 PE had similar issues with crysis untill i got older drivers. Skyrim still crashes a ton but thats because i have lots of mods on it.

After doing the ram stick tests and putting both of the ram sticks back in my system, I did more Crysis 3 tests and it has never crashed so far. It's really strange, but maybe I'll give those older Nvidia drivers a try.

Hmm, could be your RAM is not installed properly. But 3 hours ago, I've experienced the error "DXGI_DRIVER_HUNG" bla bla bla when playing BF3...what I've done to fix the problem is re-install the driver, and when I install the GPU Driver, and NVIDIA Installer ask to restart, DON'T DO IT...just shutdown your system, wait for 5 - 10 minutes, turn on the system...and my lucky, the problem is gone.
