Wattman crashing during gameplay

Hello AMD community,

my desktop specs are:

     MSI AMD R9 380 2GB

     Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

     Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.12.1

     Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 3

     Intel i5 4460

     EVGA 500B (500W)

     16GB of RAM

     full HD 60hz monitor



I've never had a problem with my GPU until recently, I've installed Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and every 20-30 minutes the game crashes and an AMD warning "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" pops up. I have the graphic settings to the lowest except buffering, that's on the second-lowest setting (I don't want edges to be "spiky"). This error doesn't occour while playing other games such as Rainbow Six: Siege. Is there anything I can do to make it stop?


Thank you,
