Hey, my SSE keeps crashing randomly anywhere from 5-10 minutes.
It'll freeze but the game audio would still be playing. The only way I can exit is by killing the .exe in task manager. I'm pretty sure my system is good enough to run with the 236 mods (I get 50-60 fps constantly, sometimes at 45 but mostly 45-60), correct me otherwise. Below is my ModWatch.


System specs: i5 680 @ 3.2 GHz
8gb DDR3 1333MHz ram
EVGA GTX 660 ti ftw+

Probably a memory issue.  8GB of system RAM and that 660ti only has 2GB.  I monitor RAM use through MSI Afterburner shown on the display of my G19 keyboard and I often go to the limit of my Vega 64 (8GB of V-RAM) and around 9GB of system RAM (5.5GB when taking into account the OS uses 3.5GB) using 602 mods with 304 plugins.  And it's a game crash alright, only not to desktop.


You can try with ENBoost but 8GB of RAM leaves little room to play with.  That's a FO4 page but it works on Skyrim and Skyrim SE too.
