On the other hand, I randomly come across with Blue Screen of Death and please refer to the picture attached.
I having the same issue. (Sapphire R9 290, Elpida memory, all stock settings, CPU and GPU)
After a cold boot, I will usually get a black screen within 1 hour (hard lock up on PC). After resetting, computer will run fine for hours. I have tested this on 2 games, Bioshock Infinite and BF4. However, I could not replicate the black screen for some strange reason when I am running Valley or Kombuster stress test.
