I just recently picked up a Radeon R9 290 and a Corsair CX750M PSU and after I put them both in I was met with random restarts that come out of no where. When i try and run a game it will restart as well. So i replaced my gpu with the old crappy model and it does not run off of my psu then it works just fine. But then when i hook up the Radeon again it crashes. I then though it was my RAM stick i put in and it ran great for about an hour then it restarted again. So i have no idea what is going on. Speccy and such are telling me that it is running at 50C so the temp seems fine. when it starts back up i am told that it was a mini dump with the following info:
