Since 4 days Eve has become unplayable, every hour, several and random crashes happens, and no happy with that, it makes me to reboot my computer, and every customizable option in game resets.

No other aplication gives me any problem, so please, if you are affected by this, post it here.

Do a memcheck on your RAM, see your S.M.A.R.T harddrive diagnostics, check your machine isn't too hot?
Run the repair tool, check your drivers are all up to date/did you change any recently?
Installed anything/visited any dodgy site/had a funky email around the time this happened?

Check your system app logs to see the reason for the crashes.

Hey mods, move this topic to Issues. It obviously doesn't belong in GD.

Thanks!

If your cpu or ram is overclocked by even 1mhz, EvE will crash.

I stopped overclocking and eve stopped crashing.

You might also want to check that ALL your driver files are up to date... EvE crashes alot for me when my drivers aren't regularly updated.

yeap. I used to overclock my graphics card with afterburner...it gives you hell MOOOOAR fps...but my eve crashed, when I docked at station.

Within station the fps rise high and with it the temperature. The moment the graphics card reached 74C temperature the computer crashed.

Heh that sounds like you need better cooling. Try liquid or extreme cooling on the CPU/GPU.

Overclocking? Nah! If eve crashes if you're overclocking your system, you're doing it wrong! I kept my old 4670 on overclock by 15-20% constantly and had no crashes. And because of the special features in my cpu it changes its core clocks like few times per second to compensate for load (drops down by 40-80% when idle, pops up by up to 10% when under heavy load).

Now, with GPU uverhating under load - eve is infamous for this, station environment is prone to heating GPUs sometimes even better than FURmark. However, maximum stable temp for gpu is very dependent on gpu and its supporting circuitry (like the VRMs). My friend's 4870 used to heat up to 90+ degrees GPU and 110 degrees on VRMs when he's in station, and then the computer crashed. He had to apply additional heatsinks on VRMs to cool them down. Other friend's laptop used to overheat every time he was in station, causing the computer to power off, up to the point that he had to turn the station environment off. Interestingly enough, none of them had any troubles with other games, even the most graphically intensive.

p.s.: by the way, 74 degrees is pretty normal to modern med/top-tier video card. f.ex.: for abovementioned 4870 90 degrees on gpu is pretty much normal.
