Screen freezing after +- 30min playing games

Hi there,
i've got a problem with my rig, it keeps freezing after playing games - BF4, BF Hardline, Assasins Creed Unity - and forced me to press reset button. It happened every time i play this 3 games, but not when i play others, such as sleeping dogs, dirt 3, nfs rivals.
everything is brand new stuff.
temperatures of mobo below 35C, cpu below 40C, vga around 50C-51C.
here's the specs of my pc:
Corsair RM1000 1000W
Asus Z97-Pro Gamer
i7-4790 @3.6GHz
Radeon R9 380
Visipro 2x8GB DDR3 (temporary)

i did the ram test and both of them are ok, with 0 errors, also i did check the event viewer and it seems that i do have some errors, such as (picture in attachment)


any idea what's going on and what could i do to fix this freezing problem?

Try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
Are your drivers up to date? Sound, GPU, chipset etc
If they are then also try an older driver for GPU perhaps.

Thx for your advice GokAy.
already did clean startup twice and all of the drivers are up to date.
Before, i did forget to update the driver for gpu, but after updating it, still the same. so, yes, i did use the older driver and also newest driver, still no luck.

kinda frustrating right now

From my past experiences with AMD Graphic cards, and the info you provided, I would say the problem is on the AMD driver's end. But also make sure that the GPU's RAM is sufficient for your screen resolution. I've also heart that the AMD Mantle option might cause some crashes in certain games. If you use it, try reverting to DirectX .

Good luck!
