Games keep crashing! Help!

Hello LTT,

 

I got a used GTX 680 that works fine, benchmarks fine on Heaven, and has the newest drivers installed. I even stress tested my CPU, and that is working fine too. However, all of my games work for a bit and then freeze, but completely are still running, with the exception of Fortnite which just crashes. I was just playing Dota 2 for about 50 minutes and it was working fine until I went back to the menu and it froze. I've tried older drivers, clean install of windows, etc. What else can I try?

Are you sure your overclock is 100% stable? How are your CPU temps looking while gaming?

Okay can you define "normal"? And have you done a good amount of stress testing? 4.8GHz on a 4790k is a rather high overclock even for a good chip.

Ah ok.

 

You could try a round of Memtest86 just to rule out bad RAM. A look into Event Viewer is a good idea also as @MellowCream suggested earlier.

How do I navigate through Event Viewer? The only games that truly crash are Minecraft and Fortnite, the others just freeze.

Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> System and look for exclamation marks with timestamps corresponding to the freezes or crashes.

 

Edit: Can also check under Custom Views -> Administrative Events for errors as well.

This is a symptom of PSU issues or pushing an OC too far.

Not PSU issues, just got a brand new one. Nothing is OCed either.

Fortnite just completely froze my entire PC for over an hour, didn't crash so I couldn't look.

You can go into Event Viewer after the fact, it stores the events so you can check later.

Ha, it's a bit of a puzzle, I know. If you like post a screen cap of the error list with the descriptions expanded and we'll see if we can decipher it.
