Windows 7: Videocard overheating causing BSoD? STOP 0x116

Videocard overheating causing BSoD? STOP 0x116

I have not seen this BSoD happen live, as it usually happens when I am sleeping, or at work. It seems to happen about once a month. I have not seen any weird artifacts when gaming, watching videos, or browsing. Open Hardware Monitor is reporting my R9 280X is at 55*C as I report this BSoD.

AFAIK, 99.99% of my drivers are up to date.

Attached is required zip file.

STOP: 0x00000116

I had a video card once that was overheating and causing the computer to reboot.

Using Speedfan (, I found that the GPU was running very hot. I replaced the video card, and the computer had no problems after that.
