I can get in just fine, I can play for a few minutes then the program stops working or I get a BSoD.

I am running windows 7 64bit
EVGA GTX 460 SC
EVGA GT 240 SC - Physx only
both running on 258.96 version drivers
4GB Mushkin Enhanced Redline 6-8-6-24 @ 1600mhz
Asus Maximus III gene
i5 760 @ 3.8Ghz
Using an Xbox 360 wireless controller and receiver
Graphic settings at default
Video settings at default
Running Directx 11
Running as an administrator
connected to tv through hdmi

Im not overheating according to CPU-Z and my NZXT sentry

Is anyone else having this problem, or know how to correct it?

Can you tell us the temperatures you're running at just on idle? Or watch them as you start the game?

It really does sound like a heating/venting problem.

Do your fans get louder, faster?

Hmm, not sure if it will help you since I'm not privy to an Nvidia rig to test myself. But have you tried down-clocking your vid cards memory (since you're running the SC version)?

I've run into some crashes(since yesterday morning's patches) when I'm in single card config that seem solved, or at least extremely lessened so far, as per my replies to this post here:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/960613-final-fantasy-xiv-online/56234514

Hard to say definitively after only about 3 hours of testing, but it seems the client may not play nice with OC cards, whether factory or end-user set (regardless of prior stability). Something to try at least, if you haven't already. At least until more patches come out. Good luck to you.

Just curious... What SHOULD a system being running at temperature wise? How hot is too hot?

what temperatures did you check? you should check for CPU, GPU and motherboard, just because your CPU doesn't overheat doesnt mean your GPU's are fine.

temperatures can be quite diffrent for diffrent components. but its never good when things start reaching 80 c and up. I'm not saying thats bad for all cards, but you should try to keep it lower.

I just built a new system. With the latest nvidia drivers and an MSI 460 I'm crashing rather often. CPU temps are fine and I'm passing Prime95 and other stress tests without issue.

I have a GT240 from Gigabyte with latest nVidia drivers. I was fine during closed beta (except for fps during phase 3). Once I started OB, I couldn't play more than 2mins before crashing. I installed the latest DirectX 9.0 runtime engine and now I play 10-20mins before crashing. I'm not overheating.

FYI, I changed Texture Quality from High to standard and I stopped crashing.

Remove the 240 video card from your computer first. If you still experience crashes put only the 240 in. If you still have issues, repost here.
