I've had quite some issues with Arma 3 lately and so far not much luck in finding anything to fix them and quite a lack of support in the week of searching and questioning.

So, as far as error messages go, here are 3 (of the several) error messages that appear when the game crashes, that I have gotten so far:
  • "The instruction at 0xf1590ff3 referenced memory at 0xf1590ff3. The memory could not be written."
  • "The instruction at 0x000002fc referenced memory at 0x000002fc. The memory could not be written."

Also, there are moments where the game's FPS will violently drop down to 1-3, and all the models (players, vehicles, landscape, etc) will become blocky, essentially non-3D textures. After about a minute or two of this, the screen will turn black and no longer respond, at which point I am forced to kill its process to be able to use my computer.

So far, I've tried the following:
  • Reinstalling Arma 3 (twice)
  • Used a different profile
  • Reinstalling directx versions
  • Used different malloc settings through the launcher
  • Used different CPU count and ExThreads through the launcher
  • Changed Profiles path
  • Set documents folder so that it wasn't read-only
  • Run game in administrator mode
  • Removed overclock from graphics card
  • Removed overclock from memory
  • Test different overclock on processor
  • Disable anti-virus and anti-malware
  • Re-seated physical video card
  • Re-seated physical memory modules
  • Tested physical RAM w/ Windows Memory Diagnostic, no issue found
  • Made sure graphics card drivers were updated
  • Removed pagefile, set pagefile to automatic, set pagefile to system managed size

Hardware-wise, here are the related parts:
CPU: i7-5960x (Overclocked at 4.4GHz, sufficiently water-cooled)
GPU: GTX 980 Ti
RAM: 16GB DDR4 (Overclocked from 2133Mhz to 2400Mhz)

Software-wise, the related:
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit
Avast Anti-Virus
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

If anyone wants a dxdiag report, let me know and I'll message it to you.

I appreciate anyone taking their time to help me (and the others having it) with this problem.
