like the title says,


it crashes mostly when windowed, very seldom in full screen games.

Hardcrash, screen turns blue or black, then restart (5min-3hours)



Win7 with updates

Ryzen 1600

mobo MSI b350

8gb ram

PSU tested 650W Enermax Gold, 750W colermaster bronce, 550W seasonic platinum (that made it crash a little less i think)


Drivers, everyone since release driver, clean installs with ddu, never helped

voltages stock, or undervolting/overvolting, didn't help, powertarget didnt help

both bios settings tested

games tested,: Overwatch, ironcast, shadow of war, southpark fractured, ...many more


system did run perfectly with a 290 and a rx480

I have approximately 25years of pc experience, so i did what i can, tested 99% of possibilities

I am assuming a generall driver bug, when doing several things on the desktop and different videoinformations are stored in the hbm
