I’m not sure how to start this but randomly when playing Vermintide 2 my whole system crashes.
My PC just shuts down instantly and restarts normal.
I’ve done multiple tests like MemTest86, Prime95 and other Benchmarks and everything ran without any error.
So I’m sure it’s not my hardware. I also pretty much replaced my whole hardware.
Speaking of my hardware here are my specs:
ASUS Maximus X Hero
BIOS is up-to-date
32GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3200 CL14
Palit JetStream GTX1080Ti 11Gb
Intel Core i7-8700K | 6x 3.70 GHz
Delidded and liquid metal applied
Just to make sure it’s not because of Overclocking I’m running on stock speeds
NZXT Kraken x62
Keeps my CPU under 50°C
SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Platinum 650W 80+
2TB Crucial MX300
V2 is installed on the SSD
4 TB Seagate SkyHawk HDD
Asus ROG Swift PG278QR 1440p 165hz Gsync
Asus VG248QE 1080p 144hz
V2 runs on the 1440p screen
With DX11 I had crashes almost daily until I switched to DX12.
With DX12 I thought the crashes are gone…nope they are back.
The game runs on Extreme settings in Fullscreen DX12, uncapped fps.
I’ve tried running the game on Lowest settings with the fps capped to 60 and still the game crashed my PC, randomly.
Playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (first game that came into my mind that is quite taxing) for hours does not crash my PC, nor does any other game.
Sidenote: With DX12 I get 80-100 fps with DX11 I get 60-80 fps during hordes. DX12 has a lot of stuttering though.
