Hey i managed to fix this issue by reinstalling DX in the arma files:
Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\Arma 3\_CommonRedist\DirectX\Jun2010
When u get to this file go to DXSETUP and run that. After that my error was fixed.
Another thing is on any GPU overclocking software, if you change your fan speed and input voltage to your card to 63% it stops this crash too
I have a GTX680 4gb what do you suggest I have my voltage set to on MSI afterburner? I have the fan set to 63% right now nothing else tweaked at the moment. It does not matter if I underclock all the way or overclock slightly. Fan 100% or auto it will still artifact or crash to black screen resulting me to ctrl alt del and ending process. Last time it crashed I was playing king of the hill and I was ejecting out of the hummingbird before the parachute deploys and it crashed to black screen and then artifacts shortly after the game is closed. I seen improvements of my card not crashing often after trying different fixes but it still occurs. I included updated .rpt and log files. Will report back if running dxsetup did anything.
Current Cfg settings. I have been raising some of these settings within the game. Will report back and see which setting causes me to crash. Btw not sure if dxsetup did anything but I hope it was worth it.

Reinstalling DX was a wise decision also Arma doesn't like overclocking it can cause a lot of issues. It is better to play the game without it.
If the game finally stabilises let us know.
Just started artifacting on me when I was dead and waiting for someone to revive me in KOTH and got way worse once I respawned back to back to base and crashed to black screen but the game was still running and even fired a shot off. Had to crtl alt del and end process. I started off using low quality preference and kept going up and now I am using very high quality preference. I did uninstall msi afterburner the other night. I always play KOTH and it was crashing at the main menu when I first started to report this. Also just updated the graphics drivers, sound, and gigabit network port on the motherboard.
