Seems like I've just joined the blue screen r9 290/x club:p
I've gotten a blue screen on 6/16/2014 while watching You tube videos in 1080p. I was watching the fallout nuka cola series, and I was on season 2.
My second blue screen happened today 7/24/14. I simply opened up internet explorer, came to this website to check the forums, then boom, blue screen from a0000001. This happened after running furmark to check temps and artifacts for overclock.
The first blue screen happened at stock settings.
I am using msi afterburner to monitor clocks and fan speeds.
I am wondering if this has something to do with msi afterburner.
Even still, this is very frustrating. You buy a high performance card (xfx r290 black edition) not a blue screen card.
I'll probably sell this card and go for a evga gtx 780 classified. It's currently on sale on newegg for 500 dollars.
