Weird crash playing WoL last night.

Recommended Posts

I installed second hand EVGA GTX 1080ti FTW3 Hybrid on saturday from a guy that used a few of them for mining. I installed it and updated to the latest drivers and it all seemed to run very well. I played all weekend with no problems. I also pushed up the graphics settings to high/max on most of the settings on IL2.


Last night while on WoL I played about half an hour and the mission rolled over to a new map (Moscow I think) where there was a lot of forest. Took off no problem, flew about 8 km from AF then bang.... PC switched off completely. Started up and jumped on WoL again took off and got to same area...BANG! This happened two more times and so I reduced my settings like grass and view distance and enabled Vsync. The mission then worked fine???


I tried a DCS Hornet quick mission (high settings) and it was ok.


I initially suspected my PSU (650W Corsair) but after reading up it seems its enough.


I am worried its the Graphics card but its not overheating or anything.🤔


ANy ideas how I can troubleshoot this and check whether its my PSU or a faulty GPU card. 


My system:


Intel i7-6700K 4 GHz Quad Core Unlocked 14nm Skylake Socket LGA1151 


MSI Z170A Tomahawk Socket Intel Chipset Z170 LGA1151 Skylake ATX Desktop Motherboard


G.Skill F4-2400C15D-8GVR Ripjaws V 8GB (2x4GB) 2400MHz DDR4 CL15 1.20V Red Desktop Memory


Raijintek Aidos Black Edition 92mm PWM Fan CPU Cooler
