Skyrim crashes to desktop

I have been playing with a heavily modded skyrim (multiple textures, meshes, and more) and ugridstoload set to 7. Sadly, my game keeps crashing and I feel like it shouldn't. I have a 7950 with 3gb of vram and 8gm of system ram.... can skyrim just not handle too many mods or something? I mean I never see my fps below 52 or any lag/stuttering/spikes. The game just crashes generally around 2-4mins in straight to the the desktop no errors or anything. No problems with any other games.

Remove mods that seem to take the most resources or ones that have crashed other user's games as well. If that doesn't work, then remove them all and reinstall Skyrim.

But shouldn't I be able to run it all? My pc has the resources and is fairly high end

I do have a somewhat above average overclock on my graphics card (1160mhz/1550mhz) but this hasnt affected any other game

I got it working after reinstalling skyrim and all the mods, so it was probably something that I messed up in the .ini files. Quick question though, skyrim magic duels reborn mod, when engaged in a duel I get a very rapid clicking sound that doesn't stop until after the duel is over.

I guess the game is just too unstable with ugridstoload past 5
Another issue though, has anyone ever experienced an odd rapid clicking noise with the mod Magic Duel Reborn? after a duel initiates I get that noise and it doesn't stop until after the duel is over

sometimes it can depend on the order you install mods, it can cause conflicts and crashes. and some mods you just cant use with others at all.

so even if it didn't need to overwrite any other mods files load order needs to be changed?

I had the same problem and I fixed it, allowing ultra high resolutions at 1080I 1900X1200 (whatever it is) and for all mods. The problem of crashing to the desktop had nothing to do with the video but it did have something to do with the video card and the HD audio. I run my sound through my HDMI connection to my screen and use the speakers on board the TV/Monitor/DVD. My normal sound card in my system is a Realtek 7.1 surround which is no longer the default but all of the settings are for 24bit 7.1 surround. I had to turn off hardware acceleration and turn down sample rate to good. This fixed the problem. I guess the audio through my Nvidia 470GTX was too much for the card or the setting for the realtek were too much, either way, It's the sound, not video, or C++ runtime or .Net 4.0

I use headphones 85% of the time which goes through my motherboard's on board audio... I'll try this and see how it goes, thank you!
