Game crashing... FFXIV has stopped workingFollow

Anyone else experiencing these problems?

The game will just randomly crash. Usually happens if I'm turning in a quest or finish a quest or enter a highly populated area. I've also had blue screens of death related to memory problems.

I stress tested all my hardware and there's no problems. All my drivers are up to date

Blue screens are almost always a the result of a hardware/driver issue.

Check your RAM first using Memtest86+

Also, if you have an overclock on CPU or GPU, set it back to stock and try again.

The blue screens have been a rare occurrence. The "ffxiv has stopped working" isn't.

My CPU has been overclocked for over a year and I had no problems with this game in phase 3. Only started since phase 4.

Just did some testing...

Underclocked my gpu clock speed and memory. Seemed to get a performance boost in game and in about an hour of playing, didn't lag, stutter, or did the game crash.

I did notice that my kaspersky anti virus seems to have a lot of problems when I play this game. I have it set to shut down all non critical functions, and it just bugs out and crashes while I play. Though it does not cause the game to crash.
