Out of the Blue

I have achieved an uneasy peace with my PC over its difficulties running Diablo IV without crashing, though I'm not altogether happy with it. Based on some forum posts, I experimented with lowering the maximum foreground framerate, which defaults to 150 fps. I have a 3070 Ti which is perfectly silent in Windows since the fans only kick in for gaming. But like most games, Diablo IV makes my machine sound like a jet turbine. Lowering the cap to 90 made things quieter and more stable. Setting it to 60 keeps it very quiet, and I haven't had a crash in a couple of extended gaming sessions. The game is not a first-person shooter, so this still feels more than smooth and responsive enough, but it does bother me that it's necessary. I've played both recent DOOM games extensively on this rig, and while these demanding games made the fans on my GPU crazy, I never experienced any crashing. Also, I've been able to play for extended periods following these Diablo crashes. So I don't think this should be a thermal issue, but it will take some more experimentation to nail that down. At least I seem to be out of the woods as far as the crashes go.
