You can try to raise the Power Limit by +20 through Overdrive via CNEXT.
I suspect it's an issue with ULPS or some other (power saving?) conflict.
But my suggestion would be to - clean off the Crimson 16.1 set with display driver uninstaller (I assume your using those)
- Catalyst 15.7.1
- Catalyst 15.11.1
I've had the randomly occurring black screen/display driver crash occur in quite a few different games; across Win8.1 & Win10; as have others posting here.
As the card doesn't crash with previous drivers and nothing else has changed - I can only place the blame on Crimson.
Some of the games aren't particularly taxing - it's as though the card is being shut off despite being in use.
I don't know what's gone wrong with the stability of the latest drivers i.e. 20% fan bug, etc - that one should've been caught before release.
I'm hoping for really solid, thoroughly tested driver set containing all the previous fixes to be released in the near future - if we have to wait a month or more to see it - so be it.
Nothing but problems since the introduction of Crimson 15.11.

have the same Problem. I got the answer of a EVE GM, this is a problem with the "GPU Particles" in the AMD Crimson Drivers. It seems there have to be fixed something in the AMD driver and EVE is a small niche and got no huge support of AMD.
However - the workaround for the issue is (if you want to keep the AMD card):
- turn off the GPU Particles Option (and have no missile trails and other graphic features anymore - don't see all the graphic things)
- install the latest pre "Crimson Driver" from AMD and do NEVER install the AMD Crimson Drivers again.
- don't play EVE anymore
I am also very frustrated, about this issue with my new card, just bought a AMD Radeon 390, instead of a GTX980. ... seems it was the wrong decision for me, if I see the trail of users, which have the same problem in EVE with the Crimson Drivers installed.
BTW: It still occurs with the last Crimson installation of 16.2.1. Nothing is fixed.
