    Big trouble with UT3

    Hi,
    since i got my ut3 i allways had a problem. When im playing it sometimes its just crash or my pc stop working. i have patched it to 1.3 and the problem is still there!=(
    PC:
    -Motherboard:ASUS A8NE-FM
    -CPU: Amd Athlon 64X2 4200+
    -3gb SDRAM DDR
    -NVidia GeForce 8600 gt

    things to always check:
    -Temperatures > best not to have cpu above 60*C, vga above 80*C
    -VGA drivers > sometimes they suck. use a previous driver version.
    -Power > best not to game on a 300W PSU.
    -Overclocks > set to default and see if problem persists.

          The 8600 is most likely your problem, as it is a very hot running card. You can raise the rpm's of the fan with the Nvidia Tuner. Once you do that, I suspect your crashes will subside.

          If they don't, keep the rpm's of the fan high and in the Settings, turn down the settings, and if you are using an LCD display, with high resolutiion, you will have to lower it.

            Depends on which 8600GT you have to be honest, it varies with the brand of it!

                i figured out that i had a problem with my motherboard, my memory slots 1 + 3 gave bad test results.
                After removing the memory from those slots ut3 did not crash anymore

                          350W??? Are you serious?

                          Big problem. I recommend this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9004&Tpk=550vx

                          You won't be able to play with a 350w... heh sorry there is no way. Really got to upgrade that PSU to a good high quality, minimum 500-550w or so.

                            Your card needs a 400w min power supply sorry to say .
                            make sure its power supply is correctly fitted too
                            I currenty have a 400w supply but it only just about copes.

                              dual cores also take more power than single-core, and even though 400w is the 'bare minimum' I would highly recommend a good quality 500+W PSU at least. It would stress a 400w one too much which can lead to degraded 3d performance and eventually freezes/shutdowns.

                              I had a 480W PSU, but after upgrading to a dual core it started freezing from time to time, then within a month my system would completely shut down... I would turn it back on and less than an hour later it shuts down again. Upgraded to the PSU that I linked in my above post and since then it's been 100% stable.. not a single crash/freeze or shutdown.
