    i had lots of crashes with this game, was told to up the GPU voltage even though i don't overclock.
    What i did instead was underclock it and cranked up the fan...worked great and i'm sure just upping the voltage likely would have worked too.

    What i don't understand is, why this game in particular and why did MSI (580gtx) not use the proper voltage by default?
    Not really keen on having to run Afterburner constantly just so i can play this game and not really into the idea of using a modded bios.

    fun game though

    Because it is a resource hog big time. Huge maps and Frostbite 2.
    Fill out your system specs too, then we will be better able to make
    suggestions to help out.

    The video card is unstable (hardware failure) or you have a driver problem. How are your temps?

    I agree with Erocker. You have some kinda issue going on. Its not the game. I run a 570 and BF3 just fine.

    Yeah it's your hardware somehow as the only time this game actually crashes for me is the rare occasion I have an unstable overclock. Rare because that's only when screwing with RAM or something because by the time it came out my present P55 machine was long built and "set". Though that's about to change again as new build time wooooo!

    Issues connecting or staying in-game due to Punkbuster sometimes is another story. Though that works fine for me too in general.

    Crysis, Crysis 2 with dx11, dead space,skyrim, stalker series and dozens of other modern titles work just fine maxed out. Not sure my exact temps.

    BF3 seems to be the only one with this issue, its strange that i underclock it and the game works fine...everything is default, drivers, hardware and game settings.

    Asus maximus gene V
    Intel i7 quad core
    16 gig ddr3
    MSI, 580gtx
    Windows 7 home

    i already updated the Bios as well as the Video card's Bios. same issue. I don't think the hardware could be failing if everything else runs fine maxed out, but obviously its pushing something in the card too hard...i don't really want to be dependant on Afterburner, i'm not really into OC'ing or other such mods despite the mobo i chose.

    Are they Looking more agressively for the Color mod now?? Or is it the same as before?
    I have been running it for Over a month and havent had a single issue, Except that I couldn't record gameplay with afterburner while it was installed , but that's n easy fix. I made the mistake of getting used to the MOD , and now the Game look's awful to me without it.:banghead:

    BF3 pushes your rig as hard as most benchmarks, and will find any weakness. Somethin's not groovy with your rig.

    he never said what his PSU is, if its towards the minimum spec level of course the components are going to strain to work because the PSU holds it back

    Yeah needs to post his spec's ! Just go to userCP and fill out all your specs.
    That gives everyone all the answers they need to try and help. It is pretty simple.
    Only trouble I ever had was straightened out by updating my GPU driver. GTX 670

    None of those games will work out your system like BF3. The game is like Tony Little on speed when it comes to a full system workout.

    Had the same issue a while back. It has to do with permissions.

    1. Go to the application folder and open the Origin folder.
    2. Find the Origin Application in that folder.
    3. Right click and hit properties.
    4. Turn on application compatibility to Windows 7
    5. Click on "Run as Administrator".

    If that doesn't work right off restart the computer.

    ya know, i got the report. i looked at it.


    and all i see is children squabbling. being immature and childish isnt really against the forum rules - and he WAS nice enough to put them behind spoiler tags.

    I only see one person being childish, Ufgy hasn't even posted in this thread since the beginning of September. All of Mr. Funbuckets posts are aimed at the same purpose, which is dubious at best.

    I reported it too alex. I believe its trolling and making things wrose in terms of his status here in this clubhouse. Everyone here knows he just posts shit to get attention and to try to piss people off. He needs to be removed from this forum.
