Artifacts + computer crash


When I join a minigame and I’m like 20-30 minutes in I randomly start getting artifacts on my screen and my computer just freezes entirely. I cant do anything like open task manager or anything. This happens to be the only game where this problem occurs, as I’ve played other games that run on the unreal engine 4 (like PUBG).

Below some information regarding crash log. My pc did crash but it didnt create a new crash log, but its the most recent log so it might help:

LowLevelFatalError [File:C:\ci\buildAgent\work\uefork2\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 182]
Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0006 - 'HUNG')

Computer specs:
I7 7700k
GTX 1080 Ti (no overclock)
16GB DDR4 3222 RAM



After some testing I found out what was causing the random artifacts plus the computer crashing. The game doesnt like it when you have G-Sync Compatibility enabled (g-sync on freesync monitors). After disabling it I no longer experienced any crashes.
