My computer tends to BSOD when gaming occasionally. (happening at least once or twice a day) 
 
GPU: R9 290 4GB
 
RAM: (2x4GB) G.Skill 2133mhz DDR3
 
MOBO: GA-78LMT-USB3 (Rev. 5.0) !IMPORTANT SPECS ON RAM: ONLY SUPPORTS UP TO 1333MHZ http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4602#sp
 
PSU: Corsair 600w CX 
 
CPU: FX-6300 
 
Nothing is overclocked, all new parts. Running on Win 7
 
BlueScreenViewer results:
 
 
 
Minidumps
 
 
________________
 
I ran memtest for 3 hours, and it found a total of 0 errors. 
 
I had an old network card in my newly built computer, removed it just right now to see if that was the problem. (will update with results soon)
 
I can play some games for up to 8 hours straight, but when I switch to a new one, it will BSOD within 5mins of playing it. 
 
I am running MSI Afterburner w/ Auto Fan to rule out any heating issues. 
 
I installed the Chipset / Sata drivers (rev 5.0 from the gigabyte site) 
 
________________
 
EDIT: It seems my issues have disappeared since removing the old network card, will update. | STILL SUFFERED A BSOD
 
EDIT: Crashes are still ongoing, but not as frequent. Will try to uninstall certain drivers to see if that helps.
 
EDIT: Ran CCleaner to resolve any registry  conflicts, will update accordingly
 
EDIT: Uninstalled Broadcom network drivers (apparently came installed with the computer) Reinstalled Wireless network drivers. 
 
EDIT: It appears I had a crash just right now. 1/9/15
 
EDIT: 1/9/15 Flash GPU BIOS all is well | https://imgur.com/a/ZLZwd
 
EDIT: 1/9/15 Updated BlueScreenAnalyzer / minidumps
 
EDIT: 1/10/15 Reinstalled Windows / Verified with MD5 to see if the file had anything missing. Crashing still occurring 
 
________________
 
What I discovered since I first posted this: 
 
1) Ran memtest for hours on end, 0 errors 
 
2) Ran virus scans 
 
3) uninstalled faulty drivers 
 
4) My GPU throttles itself to -50% when I reboot | This has been fixed w/ a BIOS update 
 
5) I only crash when playing games | True 100% 
 
6) GPU will not bsod when running  at -50% underlock
 
7) BSOD often occurs in the second game I switch to, not the first. **THIS MEANS I CAN PLAY ONE GAME FOR 8 HOURS, BUT WHEN I SWITCH TO ANOTHER, IT CRASHES WITHIN 5 MINUTES**
 
8) Last 10 BSODS all occur for the same reason. 
 
9) THE PROBLEM CAN BE EASILY REPLICATED 
 
10) Accessed the BIOS to see if there was anything fishy going on. My ram is 2133mhz, but my mobo only support upto 1333mhz. When I went into the bios I saw that it was at 1600mhz. Could this mean it OCed itself? 
 
11) Lowering the ram memory clock to 1333mhz did nothing. Still suffered a BSOD for the same reason as the previous dumps
________________
 
Steps I'm going to take soon: 
 
1) reseat ram (Priority #1) I HAVE NOT YET DONE THIS -- UNSURE IF IT'S A PROBLEM THAT HAS TO DO WITH RAM SEATING
 
2) Reinstall Windows #2  **COMPLETED. STILL HAD A BSOD**

I tried this on another forum, but no one could figure it out. I'd be greatly appreciative If I could finally figure out the problem!

I've seen this type of problem when the GPU either overheats or lowers the core voltage too much at idle. Try running the GPU fan full blast (100%) and see if you have the same issue. If that fixes the problem you can adjust the fan curve, if it doesn't we'll want to increase the base voltage by a small amount.

Also make sure you are running the latest drivers from AMD.


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

I'm currently using MSI Afterburner on auto fan profile. I rarely go above 76C under load. I'll run the fan at 100% Right now. I'm running the latest drivers from AMD. Omega

WARNING RUNNING GPU AT %100 CAN COOK YOUR GRAPHICS AND PLUS RUNNING GAMES 8 HOURS STRAIGHT IS NOT A GOOD OPTION UNLESS IF YOU GOT GOOD COOLING SYSTEM

So turning the fan speed to 100% has resolved the issue?
