    R9 390x Kernel 41 pc crashes


      PC Specs:

      i7 6700k

      Asus Strix 390x (comes overclocked)

      16bg Ram

      Windows 10 x64


      Prior to update 16.XX and above I never experienced this kernel 41 error. I had to downgrade to a 15.XX driver from 2 years ago to not crash.

      At first I thought is was my PSU Silverstone Tek 1350W ATX 12V 2.3/EPS 12V 80 PLUS but rather than replace that I kept searching for answers.

      I was led to a post saying that it could be caused by my soundcard Creative Sound Blaster ZxR so I reinstalled those drivers with lastest and others I could find, still to no avail.

      I then tried to use the updates that windows 10 provides in the device manager which installs a 17.7 driver version still crashing with those.

      Crashs happen mainly when I game for long hours or within a few hous while gaming and on youtube.

      I checked temps and the gpu never goes above 50c and cpu around the same.

      Thought it could be a direct x issue reinstalled that a few times.

      I  also thought that it could be a bios issue but that is updated to the current version.

      I am duo monitoring 1 with the amd card and the other with onboard graphics.

      Then after all this frustration I down graded to a driver 2 years old and no craching I would like some help trying to figure out why this is happening I am losing quite a big amount of fps from this old driver.

      I used everydriver from 16.XX up and crashes happen in any game I play.
