i have been getting lots of crashes about about 3 minutes of game play. the crashes are not viewable from the error logs for some reason. when i play the games they just crash completely and shut themselves out with no report or message box pop up. i know these are not heat related and do not happen when i play overwatch. i dont know where to start but i know the other games are more demanding on the system. any help is appreciated.

I know you are saying it isn't heat related, but I would check the temps on your GPU, followed by checking the voltages on your GPU/CPU/RAM/chipset if possible (not all motherboards support checking these, but most do). I would also try running something like memtest86, and then something like Futuremark.

If only the game itself is crashing (and not the system), I would focus on the GPU and OS patches.

What games crash? What cpu and what does it get up to? What are you using to monitor temps? What os and what drivers?

i am using openhardware monitor to monitor the temps. i have a gtx1080ti with 382.53 driver ( seems to be the best as of now) and a 5820k. the temps are 50-55 max for the cpu and 70c for the gtx1080ti... windows 10 pro 64bit with creators update 1703. thanks

What PSU do you have? Do you have a spare one you can swap out to test? Do you play with VSync Off? If so, does it still crash with VSync On or limiting the frame-rate in something like Rivatuner (comes with MSI Afterburner)? Capping frame-rates to 30/60fps can significantly reduce power consumption vs playing uncapped, and if your instability problems magically disappear after doing that, it could be just as much PSU related as GPU / software. At the very least, the PSU is certainly one component you'll want to rule out.

Try different nvidia drivers, even beta ones, and let us know if there is any change.

lots of people have been reporting crashes on the forums. I am thinking it is PUBG related.
