BSOD when playing Diablo 3

Ok so my motherboard was causing me trouble so I changed it. Due to this, I had to do a fresh install of windows 7. I installed all my drivers from the motherboard ( LAN\Chipset\USB 3.0\Audio) and the driver for my graphic card R9 270X. I was playing Diablo yesterday and the game crashed, not responding. I closed it and when I opened it got into a game. The game simply froze and I got a BSOD. I ran WhoCrashed and well, I checked for their solutions online. Someone said to uninstall CCC ( catalyst control center ) which I did but today, I got another crash playing D3 again. Note that I freshly installed windows so it's my only game. I have like my antivirus, chrome , diablo and that's about it. Well, here's the WhoCrashed report:

This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.

Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Welcome to 7F. I've taken a look at your dumps and both of them are 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery), this indicates a problem with your GPU whether it be drivers, heat, power to the card or just a bad card.

The first thing to try would be to try a clean install of the driver. Download the driver linked below (Omega 14.12) and save it to your desktop or other convenient location. Then run DDU to remove all traces of your current driver installation. Reboot and install the downloaded driver.
