I just bought my new rig to be ready for BF4

These are the products rig consists of


Asus Maximus Formula VI

Intel i7 4770K

Kingston hyper beast 16gb

XFX 850 power supply

XFX R290x

corsair SSD disk and cooling system .


what I find that I get black screen in some games. just warthunder , mainly BF 4 , either as it takes only 10 minutes or so I can play 2 rounds before it crashes. But the show I'm on TS I still hear my friends talk. it is impossible to get any contact with the pc . so you have to reboot .


I have checked that I have the latest driver installed on the system. have also tested other games like skyrim and TS2014 (train simulator) looks like it working there. tested then only for 10 min each . The card also plenty of power .

temp 94-97 on ultra load BF 4 also took a fresh reinstall of the drivers from AMD.


visited battelog forum , more people have the same problem as me. has also seen the various solutions you can do. put BF 4 to 64bitX and tried lower settings and so on. but i does not help . still does randoms crashers to a black screen and a force reboot is the solution .


Now I have installed an old GPU await a solution for R290x . may play itself or the driver?

also heard that there may be something in the bios or the montherbord.

Turn the fan speed up , and make sure its not a self induced crash.

im having the same problem and i have my fan speed able to go to 90% ( although they wont ) and this problem still happens. This is a driver crash not a hardware one.
