Gears of War 4 Freezes Wndows 10

Recently GOW4 has been freezing routinely during gameplay. Temps on both cpu/gpu are very good.
I have antivirus turned off during gameplay.

I have latest Nvidia driver installed.

CPU: 7700K (not OC)
GPU: 1070 (not OC)

Connected via LAN. Game installed on SSD.

No other game does this, just GOW4. My only game played under the windows 10 library.

I think this topic is already covered here PC crashes hasn't been fixed! (despite official announce)

Thanks buddy. Will read that one.

It is so annoying these issues.

What I’m doing right now is popping Win10 on another partition to be my ‘primary use’ OS that has all drivers fully updated including the Nvidia GPU. So I can do the usual day to day and newer games or whatnot. (■■■■)

I’m leaving my current Win10 OS and Gears 4 where it is (on my C drive) Then, I will downgrade my GPU (GTX 1060) back to 382.53, which for me doesn’t crash very much at all.

I don’t like to have two copies of windows on the same PC but it really beats having to rollback and reinstall drivers all the time depending on whether I feel like Gears or not. Just have to exit and boot the Gears OS and ready to rock.
