It doesn't matter what driver I use between the WHQL and the beta's, whether I disable SLI and run it through one GPU - this game is constantly crashing to the desktop or worse.
And it's the only game I'm having issues with, every other game runs full blast flawlessly.
It happens on my two notebooks too, which is why I think its the coding, but the haters on the SWTOR forums are trying to say it's all me and my system.
So, being one who tries to keep an open mind, I'd thought I'd ask here if anyone else is having stability issues with SWTOR and their 590?
It almost doesn't matter anyways; as that I never play MMO's, my lvl. 41 Jedi Consular can't pass the lvl. 37 Class Quest/Mission. So, I guess I suck at them.
Well, in terms of the system -- It is you.
The game, itself, cannot logically cause the above.
What SWTOR DOES do, is it finds errors where even memtest, fails...Now, I'm not saying you have an error that would cause detriment to anything else, I'm saying that it's highly likely you have a real error, it's just at an extreme you don't use your system at.
The above is actually pretty normal...Examples of this would be Photoshop (anyone remember those errors?), Doom 3 (I remember those crashes...Wonderful HD corruption tool, still to this day)...
Again, I'm not saying the above is your issue but, it's funny how some programs, root out errors better than our stress tests.
What I can see also causing this issue is drivers -- Certain drivers just don't like the game...I have no idea what drivers I'm on at home, actually...But, I have a HUGE memory leak on my ship the moment I touch the space terminal...Causes a double instance.
Personally, I'd write them an email with your DXdiags and explain the issue in depth...
As I said yesterday in the SWTOR forum, the diligent more are we, a better game, expect can we.

considering short period of full load under 1.05v, torned off capacitor and good condition in terms of perfomance, i think the card itself wasnt too damaged by high voltage
Shinobi Jedi, i'm playing too and having some troubles. same crushing, but it happens only when changing instances, when loading screen is just one big ugly random skill icon. hitting "win" key quickly help to avoid driver crushing.
also after aprox. 2 hours i have some kind of texture glitch. alt+tabing helps (video memory leaks i think).
It doesn't matter how short of a load it is...1.05v on 1 core, pushes the over above 1.05 -- by at least +0.03v ~ I'm honestly not kidding.
Past 1.05v is actually the stress point of the vast majority of those pathways...I wouldn't be surprised if there was damage and you just won't see it until down the line.
This is why earlier in the thread it was expressed that one should NEVER go beyond 1.02v ~ It's just bad for the card, itself.
