    Constant system freeze or 'WattMan setting restored due to unexpected system failure' + game crashing [R9 280]


      Card: R9 280

      OS: Desktop, Windows 10 64-bit

      Driver version installed: 17.9.1

      Motherboard: GA-P67A-UD3-B3 rev 1 F2

      PSU: CX550


      Problem: Usually get one of the three -

      1. Usually when gaming but also generally: monitors will freeze, and then go into stand-by mode. Only way to turn off is holding power button. Sometimes they stay stand-by mode on boot.

      2. Game crashes ("Your rendering device has been lost" - Overwatch), AMD says "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to an unexpected system failure". Also get "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has succesfully recovered" in Event Viewer.

      3. BSOD: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT or Thread Stuck In Device Driver


      Have tried:

      - Reinstalled drivers

      - Reinstalled Windows


      Cheers if you can provide any help, been plagued with this for months.
