R9 390x 8GB MSI (I removed it once to clean my PC no more than that. This remove

Driver: 17.30.1041-170720a-316467C-CrimsonReLive (Could have happened with the last driver as well)

Asrock Fatal1ty - z97 Chipset

i5-4690k - OC'd to 3.9k I've had it at 4.2k as well but I lowered it before this.

16GB of RAM - PNY standard RAM not gaming

Toshiba OCZ TL100 Series 2.5" SATA III 240GB SSD

The game it crashes in is Overwatch



OW settings:

All Low - If they can be turned off they are OFF

75% rendering scaling

V-Syn Off

Reduce Buffering ON

Tripple Buffering OFF

FPS limited at 144 for Monitor

What happens:

I load into the game and start to play around in quick play/comp and in 1-3+ games into my session, my game crashes, this is an estimate though it can happen whenever. When the crash happens I see my game freezes also, little lines that run across the screen like an old Cathode display TV. With a little window popping up saying video feed died or something like that. I can never see it because I can't  ALT+Tab without having to ALT+F4. I've also had FPS drops since the last 2 drivers I've installed. As of making this post I went back to a pre-driver and will update this if that fixes it. You know for the other people out there with this problem


If I forgot any specs that I need I'll add them Via request. Thanks!
