Getting "THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER" BSOD after playing for a while with a R9 390X

I'm getting that BSOD error after about an hour of playing Cities: Skylines and about 15 minutes of Shadow of Mordor.


Gaming Evolved / Raptr has been already removed as per this recommendation [Link to this forum].


I'm about to remove the drivers using DDU and reinstalling the latest drivers (15.301.1801) and if that doesn't work, go back to trusty Catalyst...

What I find annoying it that even I had an outdated driver (15.301.1201), the auto detect utility and the Crimson Control Panel did not prompt for an update.



Driver 15.301.1801 still crashed my machine, so I reverted back to Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta and now SoM works like a charm. I'd like to offer my help to the devs to see if we can find what wrong so it can be patched in future updates, because staying with outdated drivers is no long term solution...


Any other help or fix would be greatly appreciated. I'll dump all the relevant info now:


The BSOD data read with Nirsoft's BlueScreenView is:
