Problems with Crimson drivers, Gigabyte R9 390 G1 Gaming

     Hi. I have problems with Gigabyte R9 390 G1 Gaming, and appears to be the fault of the Crimson drivers.

I explain my situation. I have assembled a whole new computer. First all went well, with the drivers I downloaded from Gigabyte page for the GPU, but when I updated the drivers to the new Crimson I have problems.

The problem is that often the computer freezes with a black screen if I'm playing (with all games), and after a few seconds the light goes out and the LED on the motherboard PCIEx slot where I've installed the GPU stays on red.

When I'm on the Windows desktop or doing anything else happens the same as I described above, but instead of a black screen, I get a blue screen saying there is an error of drivers, Windows collects information, shuts down the PC and the red LED lights.


     I tried to return to the Catalyst driver, and the problem goes away, but if I return to the Crimson drivers, no matter the version it is, the problem returns.

I have also tried to completely reformat the computer and install the operating system and everything from the beginning, but when I update to the Crimson drivers the problem persists.


I would like to install the Crimson drivers, because I bought a virtual reality HMD (HTC-VIVE), and the Catalyst drivers will not work well with this new device.        


NOTE: My current monitor works at 144Hz and 1080p.


Thank you for your attention and sorry for my english.
