thank you for the feedback.

Are you running any mods? If so please try to disable them first.

The next thing I would ask you to do is to provide us with the crashdumps.
If you are getting crash with vanilla version (without mods) please try to provide crashdumps created without the mods.

You can get the files by simply reproducing the crash, once the error window appears select Show Details and Prepare Report, once the files are ready, you will have option to Save Report enabled, please use it and save the ZIP file with the report somewhere where you can access it and upload it here.
Or you can look for the crashdumps manually. Crashdump (set of mdmp + rpt + bidmp with same timestamp) files should be located in this directory:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Arma 3

Once you have the files in a ZIP, please drag&drop them into the comment box, or (if you encounter any issue with uploading it here) upload them to some free file sharing service (for example Dropbox) and post the link to the files into the comments.

Thank you


I believe all the crashes I'll attach here are vanilla version of the game, playing on MP servers. If some mods are activated in some reports, please ignore them. I have uploaded two batches, first from April (should be all vanilla), second from the current month. Please try and figure it out, or point me in the right direction, so I can try to fix it.
And please tell me the best parameters I should use for my below configuration, thanks!!bQBWEZSC!WnfIUEk0RSBP4s6DA8S9OvO4RLQBseTBxJ8UYPGLwck!CMYAgKaQ!izhYn9n_ZUpj8n7TDMyaSw5z5gY63ypLEpWBNEMdixU

CPU: i7-5820k with NH-D14 Noctua cooler, 28C idle, around 50C when playing Arma 3 and other heavy games.
GPU: GTX 980, aggressive cooling, around 50C when playing.
RAM: Corsair 16GB, 3GHz DDR4, should suffice
Good air-flow through my PC case, shouldn't be the overheating and such.

Thank you!
