This is scaring me as this has never happened to my previous graphics card (the Nvidia GTX 760) but as soon as I installed the Sapphire R9 Fury Dishonored 2 causes my computer to shut down its power and restart Windows 10. I spent all of last night reinstalling Windows and everything else (including the latest Radeon driver and bios) and still the same result. I have tried playing games like "Battlefield 1" and it works; however, with "Dishonored 2", this has been the worst crash for me with video games. I don't think its an overheating issue since it's been running Battlefield 1 about two hours. Plus, this only happens a second after Dishonored 2 has been done loading its start menu. Any idea on why this could be happening? Do you think it's a software or hardware issue?
