you have several errors.
there are GBID errors. ive never seen that but imo it looks like its probably an AH thing.

then there are FMOD errors. those are sound errors which have to do with the software they are using. it looks like you were in Act 3 when it happened.
there isnt really much you can do about this aside from changing your sound to 16 or 32 channels and hope it helps. the FMOD software they are using doesnt take advantage of any hardware you may have and completely relies on your CPU to process it.

Hi Morogoth - Thank you for the help.

Yes, the AH errors I'm not that concerned about. It was probably a combination of lag and me clicking "send to stash' too quickly.

The A3 sound errors are crashing my game client. What hardware would I need to buy/install or what deity would I need to pray to in order to fix this?

I downgraded my sound quality to 16 bit in 1.06 and it helped with Rakki's Crossing FPS lag. It is still set at 16bit. Until just about 4 weeks ago everything was great.

if you havent tried to do it alread you can delete the Cache folders. sometimes the info in them gets corrupted. maybe it will help you.

these are the default locations
C:\programdata\Blizzard Entertainment\Battle.net
C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\Data_D3\PC\MPQs

after you delete the cache folders open the launcher and go to
Help>Repair Tool

Did it, lets see what happens...

Thank you for your continued attention.

Update -

Did it and got this error:
https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/BLZBNTBTS00008

Will follow directions and continue to update here on this thread.

Update #2 -
The error persists even after following the directions indicated on the bnet site. Both the launcher and the application itself give me this error when not using shortcuts. Going to reinstall for the Nth time....

I've been researching this myself since I'm experiencing rare freezes since 1.0.8. I've made thread about it. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9309261246

Below is a collection of more threads I found on freezes since 1.0.8.

I own a GT70 ONE with a GTX 680M. I didn't have this issue before 1.0.8. At first I could not find anything wrong with my gaming notebook. However intensive testing did find memory errors and GPU throttling due to too high temps. Like I said at first everything seemed ok. Windows Memory Diagnostic tool didn't show any problems. Logging GPU temp with GPU-Z didn't show any real problems. The temp was high @ 93 degrees. However GPU-Z didn't detect any GPU throttling. I was experiencing FPS drops and stuttering at that time. This was already present before patch 1.0.8.

I started doing more testing with Memtest86+. It found 8 consecutive memory addresses to be faulty. I tried it with a different version of Memtest86 to be sure. Same address came up as faulty. I have had not one single windows crash other then game freezes in Diablo 3 since 1.0.8. Therefore I'm pretty surprised Windows Memory Diagnostics did not catch this. I'm reluctant to believe Memtest86 is at fault here since I used different versions and the latest one detects my hardware properly.

I started using Nvidia Inspector and ran the sensor monitoring. It did show GPU throttling because of the GPU reaching throttle temps. This resulted in jerkiness and FPS drops. I did another test and actived the cooler boost on the laptop. Now the max temp reached was 84 degrees and no GPU throttling. Pretty much no more jerkiness and FPS drops.

I'm going to be testing again with the cooler boost on all the time during D3 play and continue to moniter temps and GPU clock. Since the memory "might" be at fault here I can't be sure and therefore I issued an RMA request for the laptop. Although 93 degrees is not a temperature that will fry the GPU, it's still a temperature to be concerned about. It will cause continuous GPU throttling. I'm going to continue playing with cooler boost enabled and see if I experience any more freezes just to be sure.

You might be experiencing a similar issue and I strongly recommend performing the same tests. Below are the links where you can find the required tools.
