    The alpha worked fine for me. But the beta made my motherboard to start making weird sounds aswell as the full game. Did a CCleaner on uplay and even installed it on a different drive but still I get huge fps drops. I got a high end gaming computer with a 970 card. Got tons of games but R6 is the only one thats making my moba go apeshit. Can run battlefront on ultra with all kinds of enhancing on the nvidia control panel at max. R6 is probably the worst optimized game I’ve ever played. The customer supports keep telling me to do the stupid trouble shooting (like i havent tried that , aye? ) . Do note that when I tried to uninstall the alpha uplay didnt allow me to uninstall it the first time. When I go to windowed mode the sounds from the moba stops. But as soon as I enter fullscreen it starts again…..

      My game is now crashing somewhat frequently causing my computer to reboot.The problems started when I got the 970 card. Since you have the same card maybe the problem is there?
