Hey guys, I'm having some annoying issues with my eve client.

It's a new system I put together, so the possibility for bugs seems high, but I'll list the specs.

Windows 7 64 bit
Intel i5 2500k
2x AMD Radeon HD 6970
Asus Maximus 4 Extreme Z
16GB PC3-17000

I run multiple clients, and occasionally one will freeze up, then another, then another. Sometimes that part takes a minute or two. Ill try CTRL-ALT-DEL and a few other commands but I get no immediate responses. I can still talk on TS3 and sometimes bring up the start menu, but this also sometimes ends in a BSOD :(

After a while, CTRL-ALT-DEL will catch up, the screen will switch to the task manager screen, and the clients will be restored to working order.

This is an incredibly annoying problem. I'll see about getting a screenie of the BSOD next time, but I'm no longer getting a windows message on startup about it so my information is a bit limited.

Please assist! This is driving me nuts!

Sounds like driver issue, cpu/gpu heat issue, faulty memory issue.

Pick one. Unlikely to be eve related.

No other programs have trouble. Only eve, and I know it's not overheating.

I was expecting that answer. It seems to be pretty standard one people giving before realizing they were wrong .)

Anyways I would put my money on either network drivers or gpu drivers with the given limited information. I would check that gpu/cpu heat part again also, as the symptoms really point strongly to that direction. Run hwmonitor or something just to make sure. Faulty ram chips do wonderfull things also... run memcheck as last option if nothing else seem to make sense. Another of your radeons might be fried also.

Lets just say that if eve gives you bsod, it is only matter of time when you find another game what does exactly the same and that game doesn't cause it either.
