Blender is randomly causing crashes and freezes my entire system, which is forcing me to hard reset my PC.
Sometimes its during rendering (GPU, CPU, or CPU+GPU)…but its during normal Blender use as well. Modelling, rotating, shading… Its pretty random.
I know blender makes a crash file when it crashes…but because my entire PC crashes…it doesnt make it so I can’t see what happened to it . My temps seem normal so i dont think its an overheating issue.
Additionally, the whole programma kinda feels sluggish, even when its just a clean file. So maybe its a wrong setting? My computer should be really fast…but Im not getting this from blender…
- resetting blender settings
- updating windows and GPU drivers
- limiting CPU usage
- set the cycles compute device to CUDA, and just CPU (tried both)
- nvidia control panel: set to prefer maximum perfomance (power management mode)
Here are my specs:
Blender 2.79 (the one with GPU and CPU rendering at the same time)
windows 10 Home 64bit
CPU: threadripper 2950x (@4.2 GHZ OC) with AOI liquid cooling
GPU: EVGA GTX 1080ti 11GB
disk setup: blender programme on SSD, blender temp/cache on seperate SSD, project on seperate SSD
Can somebody help me figure out what’s causing this?
