Any UE4 version freezes computer
No driver/software updates in past two weeks, nothing is allowed to auto-update on my computer. today all of a sudden ue4 freezes my computer after flying around a while in the editor.
I have tried 4.10, 4.11, 4.12 with 4.11 giving me the longest time before freezing. I have tried binary and source, on brand new hdd's and ssd's, cleaned cache's, re-installs, after formatting, lowering the engine settings, a variety of projects, maps, levels, content. after 2 - 10 minutes ue4 freezes my computer.
Loading high end 3dsmax scenes with gazillions of polygons on thousands and thousands of meshes, lighting going on, filling up my 32 gb of ram, playing doom, witcher, FO4 on ultra all work like a charm, no lags, no stutters, all nice and smooth.
I have chkdsk-ed all my drives, did I/O stress tests, memtests, dxdiags, make windows 10 check for errors, defragmentations, ssd advanced optimizations, checked for faulty wires, 3dmarked, prayed to cthulhu, shaked my fist in the air, went trough a whole day worth of event viewer (all volume healthy), reset the cmos battery, told my gf, got frustrated, and now posting it on this answerhub thread, knowing that either people suggest all the stuff I already tried after 12+ hours of almost non-stop trying to solve this, or that nothing will result in a clear answer on why this happens.
Without ue4 I cant finish my content for my clients.. and that results in... quite some money loss. So.. yea... halp?
Not really a "solved" but lowering my gpu core speed about 30% did reduce the crashes, cant tell for sure if its a permanent solution or not.
Well.. solution.. Not really useful to force the gpu to run 30% slower just because ue4 likes to freeze all the things.
Prior to reducing gpu speed by 30%: On a side-note, I did notice that when I have the ue4 viewport with the outline/content browser/etc set as stock (docked, etc) the time it takes to crash is way lower, than closing those tabs.
with tabs : 5-10 runs of elemental before crash. without the tabs: 1-5 runs of elemental before crash.
