Stability problems? Always cap your FPS or use V-Sync!
I've a friend with GTX980. His FPS was at 100 (default highest possible) and the game crashed every few minutes. He capped FPS at 60 and didn't have a single crash in several hours. I always cap my FPS to keep the PC cooler and quieter, so I never had a problem like this. ESO has those strange GPU load spikes (especially at higher FPS) which might be reason to stability problems.
Don' know how to cap your FPS?
Go to C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\liveeu (alternatively liveus?)
SET MinFrameTime.2 "0.01"
and set it to
SET MinFrameTime.2 "0.0166"
Now your FPS is capped to 60, no VSYNC.
MinFrameTime means minimal frame time. 1 second / FPS = MinFrameTime. 1/60 = 0.0166
I cap my FPS at 48, so my value is "0.02083333"
Did this help you? Please reply, don't forget to write your FPS value before you capped it.
