Still having this issue in 2019, a week before the release of Gears 5. Bet yah 10 bucks Gears 5 is gonna have these issues too… Thanks Microsoft/windows 10.

New drivers are working well, have you tried them? Give em a go the more feedback the better.

Gears is sensitive to CPU overclocks.

He may have the same CPU but might be pushing it to a speed where Gears doesn’t like.

Lol let’s be real gears is sensitive period well at least for 10 series. But yeah I’d drop all OC’s and try the new driver.

Funny you say that because why may have been his issue. After factory resetting his BIOS and avoiding an overclock he hasn’t cracked since.

Yeah,

I thought so,

If you’re crashing with a RTX then it’s either CPU or GPU Overclock from my experience (or a fresh windows install is needed).

I had Gears 4 close down very neatly a couple of times before I dropped down to 220 from 240 to avoid the CPU stressing to higher speeds.

It’s literally like my high maintenance ex’s.

Any other game - full OC - room is cooking like a sauna but no problem, Games carry on :sweat_smile:

Man it’s not usually too bad but last night was so frustrating.
I was trying to coop and when loading in to the start of Act 3 Chapter 4 after taking control of a character and moving for less than a minute (sometimes after a few seconds) would resulting in freezing every time. I gave up after 5 tries and a few hours later the 6th try also resulted it a freeze. I’ve updated to the latest drivers so hopefully I have better luck tonight…

did you play any longer past 4 hours after, did you experience any crashes after that?

no the game is going great for me. I hope it stays like this.

2 days Crash free :slightly_smiling_face:

Good to see you’ve had Gears sober for 2 days and no crashes!

A lot of people are seeing good results but I think some have said it’s crashing so progress but still needs work to get everyone on a crash free level.

Yea, the Nvidia staff said this was a partial fix that should clear it up mostly for the majority of people, but the full fix is scheduled for the next driver.

Yeah,

Hopefully that lands Monday/Tuesday or before 5 begins on Thursday.

I have tested even more.

  • cpu gpu ram overclocked.
  • all settings are switched on in the options
  • Frame cap @144
  • Game bar
  • Party Chat

And no freeze :+1:

i am currently streaming right now & haven’t crashed yet i even played for 3 hours straight off stream earlier this morning & haven’t crashed, i’m a 1050ti 4gb user with 15 7600k & 16gb of ddr 4 ram & this driver is a huge improvement so far

The new driver is working for me also. I’m playing for two hours straight now, I did some ranked matches, and now I’m gonna play some casual.

I’m playing on a GTX 1080 , R5, 16gb RAM, custom settings, FPS capped at 144 on a 1440p monitor.

This driver may not be the final fix but surely it’s a step in the right direction.

OK after i played 4hours off stream & playing it another 4 hours on stream i can confirm the new drivers has not experienced not one crash or freezes so far today! it’s great that gears 4 is finally working but i feel it is alittle too late for coalition as gears 4 is going to be dead by the time gears 5 comes out next week… 3 years of us dealing with this issue & it should of been more top priority instead of skins… if gears 5 has any one hint of crashes or freezes i’ll just ask for a refund & hang gears to the hangar & say screw it & be done with the franchise & devs if we get a repeat of gears 4 on pc issues
