Memory speed is causing game crashes

Recommended Posts

Game crashes every ~5min when memory is set to 3200Mhz. Changing the speed just below 3Ghz (2933Mhz) resolves the issue.

This made me think that ram is not stable at those speeds/timings, but it passed standard(1h40min) memtest86 on 3200Mhz with 16 16 16 as well as 16 18 18 timings without any errors.


Custom mods are unloaded/not used when this happens, game files are verified on steam, changing parameters for memory allocator did not solve the problem.

I would really like that extra fps that 3200Mhz ram gives on Ryzen.


Are there any solutions to this other than lower ram speeds?


Error code is something like: 00000005 "memory access violation"
