View Full Version : Random crashes during games

04-15-2013, 09:59 AM
I'm not sure if I posted this in the right section so please let me know if it isn't.

Since I built my computer a couple of weeks ago, I've been having problems with games. Before I got a graphics card, I was running on Intel HD4000 internal graphics and it was so buggy I couldn't play most games (except for ArmA II) where they crashed on open or at random parts of game play or just flat out didn't open. I tried everything, installing anything that people said may help, and I eventually fixed the issue for most games by reinstalling them. Then I got the graphics card and installed the NVIDIA drivers etc. Now all games except for Far Cry 3 (crashes when the loading screen finishes) open and run fine for the most part, but every now and then I get a game crash. In GTA IV it was limited to a certain mission where it crashed when I shot the objective, but in other games like Just Cause 2, Crysis 3, ArmA II, and Battlefield 2 the crashes are random. If they come up with a crash message it usually just says appcrash. Does anyone know why these crashes are happening? It's doing my head in because I can't use the computer for its main purpose.. My specs are as listed below if it helps:
Maximus V Formula
Asus DirectCUII 680
Corsair AX860
Corsair H100i

Thanks in advance for any responses.

How does one do that?
Oh, btw I just remembered what you told me to do in the other thread, it worked. Thanks heaps lol

don't worry, I just found it. I'll copy one of the crash events for just cause 2:
Faulting application name: JustCause2.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4ba03352
Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x40490fdb
Faulting process id: 0x12f0
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce39be1f161a97
Faulting application path: D:\Programs\Just Cause 2\JustCause2.exe
Faulting module path: unknown

do you have vccio and or vccsa voltage option in the bios? if so how much are they using?

04-17-2013, 11:20 PM
the vccio voltage is at roughly 1.050 and the vccsa is around 0.950-0.960

04-18-2013, 12:16 AM
with 16gb of memory I would try with 1.1v vccio voltage,this is for the integrated memory controller inside the cpu

04-18-2013, 09:46 AM
I set it to that and it looks like its stopped the crashes but I can't say for sure because they were so random. Thanks so much for your help, if it crashes again I'll come back here haha
EDIT: I spoke too soon, GTA IV still crashes but I'm yet to see a crash in the other games

04-18-2013, 11:36 PM
your using profile 1 for your memory? you could try with 1.1250v vccio

04-19-2013, 01:01 AM
Sorry, I'm kinda new to having a good desktop.. What do you mean profile 1? I set the vccio to 1.1250, I'll see how it goes.

Since I changed those voltages my computer has been randomly.turning itself off and on repeatedly. when i try and turn it on it will start to boot the shut off and a couple of seconds later it turns back on and then off etc. after a while it boots into windows but then the cycle starts again randomly

set it back to auto then,it wont hurt your pc it just helps sometimes with 16gb of memory

x.m.p is a saved profile for your ram,it will set the speed/timings and dram voltage if you enable it,not all memory supports x.m.p but I think yours does

it could also be driver issue,or too low dram voltage

04-19-2013, 07:45 AM
i set x.m.p back on, along with auto for everything. luckily it boots now. I think I'm just going to go to asus support and ask them whats going on
