Random Crashing since citadel

Ever since the release of citadel, I have been crashing at random. Most of the time it crashes when im doing The maze (10/10 plex). Sometimes im just firing at the end structure, sometimes it happens when im just chilling after the site. Most recently it happened during a small 50 man fleet fight, . We had just killed project mayhem's capitals next to taisy, the battle was over and it was calm on grid while we just waited for a cyno to burn down.

1. Screen goes black for a second or two. (i do not get the display driver crash alert)
2. Then CCPexe file has stopped responding message pops up and then client closes.
3. Re-log and it wont happen again for a few hours..

Steps to remedy the situation are
1. reinstall the entire game.
2. rolled back and updated to new graphics drivers.
3. updated any other driver I could find.
4. changed graphic settings to low, still happens.

Im pretty frustrated because it happens during the 1010 and on fleet fights, sometimes i dont always have my booster on because of the way i run 10/10 and i almost lost the plex ship because of it. This only started with citadel.

Hardware overview.
amd fx8350
asus crosshair v-formula
16gb gskill ddr3 ram
Corsair neutron xd 250gb ssd, brand new.
Evga gtx 970
Windows 10 up to date.

Bug report has been created but i want to know if anyone else has had this issue since citadel release. Any help from the eve community would be greatly appreciated.

Yes! I've been crashing too. For me it seems to be when trying to load game assets on demand. For example when jumping into a new system, browsing market info about new items, or interacting with the map.

I've filed bug reports and opened support cases but just gotten no responses or generic responses from CCP. Very frustrating!

The crashing has gone away for me entirely since switching to DX9
Northern Coalition.

I've been having the same issue for some time. And, like the OP, have an GTX 970.

I'm seeing other reports of problems with 970s/980s and it only happening with Eve, unfortunately....


edit: the only way I've seen to prevent this is playing on close to full potato mode (low textures etc). But that's no fun.
