    Why does Dishonored 2 cause an abrupt reboot with the Sapphire R9 Fury when loading up the game?

      Specs:

      Mobo: Asus Z87 Pro

      GPU: Radeon Sapphire R9 Fury

      Ram: Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3

      PSU: Corsair HX 750

      CPU: i5 4670K

      OS: Windows 10

      SSD: Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow

      HDD: WD Blue 1TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM

       

      This is scaring me as this has never happened to my previous graphics card (the Nvidia GTX 760) but as soon as I installed the Sapphire R9 Fury Dishonored 2 causes my computer to shut down its power and restart Windows 10. I spent all of last night reinstalling Windows and everything else (including the latest Radeon driver and bios) and still the same result. I have tried playing games like "Battlefield 1" and it works; however, with "Dishonored 2", this has been the worst crash for me with video games. I don't think its an overheating issue since it's been running Battlefield 1 about two hours. Plus, this only happens a second after Dishonored 2 has been done loading its start menu. Any idea on why this could be happening? Do you think it's a software or hardware issue?
