Hello everyone, lately I have been having a problem and I can't seem to figure out what the issue is. Yesterday I was playing some games like Dark Souls 2 and GTA 5 fine and then all of a sudden they would crash about 10 seconds into the game. I noticed my GPU Usage % would stay around 40% instead of the usual 98%. I also noticed my GPU usage would fluctuate fairly frequently even when I was just browsing the web. What is weird is that I can run GPU intense benchmarks with MSI Kombustor 3 and get decent performance with no abnormalities but when I switch to a game it crashes. I updated all my drivers and even down graded to an older version that worked fine in the past. I overclocked my CPU to 4.3 Ghz and its stable and I have sufficient PSU so I am guessing its a GPU of software problem but I am not sure. Temps are also fine on everything.

CPU: AMD FX-6300 @ 4.3 Ghz
GPU: Sapphire R9 270 OC Edition
PSU: Corsair 600W
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2.0
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance

Attached is some pictures of the GPU usage when running game and just idle browsing the web. The GPU is also stock settings.

1. Running MSI Kombustor getting normal results
2. Trying to play a game
3. Idle after game crashes

What my GPU Usage looks like idle
