My solution for this is located at post #5114 of 5148 (Page 512)
While gaming the temps of the card and VRM is reaching 73+ using default settings no overclocking has been made, I have no intention of doing so. The fan speed is set to default during that state and it is only spinning 30% which I think it can not dissipate the heat (consider the room temperature) and I'm 90% sure that causes my system to crash / BSOD. Then I set the fan speed to manual with 50% and it did not crash for 1 hour of gaming and I manage to finish 1 mission which is contrary to the usual.

If you've got a friend who's a PC gamer, ask to borrow theirs for a couple hours, then you would know absolutely the RAM isn't interfering. Or even head to a local store, have a BestBuy around, purchase some RAM and if you still have issues return it.
find it improbable that 73C would cause the card to BSOD or have driver crashes. Nothing else is overclocked correct?
Have you tried removing and re-installing the GPU? Or even a different PCIe slot? Friend of mine just had quirks with his PowerColor 7870 GHz and after re-installing the GPU everything was OK. If you have compressed air handy, blow out the PCIe slots to make sure nothing is interfering with contact.
Examine the GPU pins and the PCIe slot itself to make sure nothing is out of the ordinary.
My Devil 270X came in the mail today, so I will likely be testing it this evening. I will let you know how it performs.
How long have you had the card BTW? Has it been giving you problems since it was new? Have you recently changed anything else and now you're having these problems?
I only have two RAMs, and it is a set. During my 1st attempt, I installed ram1 to slot 2 of the motherboard, BSOD occurs. 2nd attempt ram2 to slot 2 the "display driver stopped responding..." message appears. I did not try to run it again on that same configuration but If I do I guess It'll BSOD again for sure. So now the 3rd attempt ram1 to slot1 of the motherboard, again it BSOD with the same error code from attempt no. 1 Later I will try to install the ram2 to slot1 and see how it goes, I have 2 more slots to try the 3rd one and the last. If this slots gives me Blue screen again then 2 of my ram are faulty? Or all my ram slots are faulty? which is kinda weird. I always clean my system twice a month so I'm sure that dust interfering is not the problem here.
Default settings, I have no intention of overclocking my card because its already factory overclocked.
Again, I brought my card to the shop where I bought it to think that it was faulty because of what I've experience and they tested it and works flawlessly, no BSOD occurs and the cards run cooler where they tested it (room air conditioned) so GPU pins are in good shape. I also tried using the 2nd PCIe slot but to no avail.
I bought it last day of January, so the card is only 2 months old now. At first of course it did not show signs of problems, but after a week I guess this weird "driver stopped responding...." message appears. At first I think it was only a driver issue, so I waited for another revision from AMD, the first driver I tried is the 13.12 which is I'm currently using right now. For almost two months 4 drivers that I used (including the beta drivers with mantle) the problem is still the same. I did not do anything else to my card since day 1 just the fan speed settings which also fixed the problem.Edited by microkid21 - 4/7/14 at 6:18pm
