Specs: Windows 10
Hello. Never happened like this in this game,Control Remedy. I was able to run game 24 hours without issue. But Today game just freeze,hang up. Mouse not responding,keyboard not responding. CTRL ALT DELETE logout from system.
Event viewer nothing about crash,no driver crash. Just simply game freeze hangs. Killed in task manager i.

I have 2080 Ti Aorus NO OC stock,9700K Stock.

Any ideas why that happened? My pc are stable. But i dont know if something is broken in pc?

I remember that on this day i do something inside pc case. I changed position of GPU AIO cable ,because cable get inside of back case exhaust fan. So fan was not turning. So i just move position of cable to not interfere with fan.
And after that i run CONTROL and after 2-3 hours game freeze. Something like that never happened ,game never freeze on this pc for me.
So maybe i just damaged something in pc or that was coincedence?

Run msi afterburner with rivatuner to monitor what happens as you play the game before it freezes to see if there is a fault somewhere with the hardware...turn on gpu(clock speed, temp, usage percentage) same for cpu and ram to be viewed...

Also try updating your graphics driver and finally try running it in either directx 11 or 12 and see if anything will change

I had msi afterburner during this moment and it freezed on normal 1920mhz .
Game just stop resonding ,freezed. Character stop moving. So i force ctrl alt delete and kill game.

No app crash in event viewer,no driver crash. Game just stop resonding. I think if hardware issue then bsod or driver crash. But that was not.

Is your GPU similar in design to this one?


I have absolutely no knowledge on GPU regardless of which type etc. but am curious about the problems you're having.

Are you sure you haven't dislodged to card slightly in its socket on the motherboard.

To confirm this - power down and remove power/mains cord from the computer. Carefully remove the GPU card and then re-insert/re-install it; pressing it firmly into place. Then power up again and see if any change in the situation?

When the system freezes, is the main case fan assembly still operating correctly?

Is the cooling fan on the CPU still operating correctly?

Are the other fans in still operating correctly?
