    Radeon R9 290 shutdown after a few minutes of gameplay

      Hi everyone,

       

      I upgraded my gaming-pc from a GTX 550Ti to a Radeon R9 290, and at first it was running brilliantly! After a while though, the games started to freeze and the speakers started making noise during the freezing. Sometimes it crashes back to the desktop, sometimes it just stays frozen, other times I get a black screen.

      I have tried to get older drivers (13.12) it doesn't solve the problem. Can anyone help me?

       

      Specs:

      AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE

      Corsair XMS3 2 x 4gb

      Sapphire R9 290 4GB GDDR5

      Corsair RM1000
