New GPU Causing constant reboots

First of all, Hi and secondly I have an issue, well. My PC has an issue...

After getting my brand new shiny R9 290 from XFX my PC has decided it wont stay on for more than an hour (this is the longest time and I was just idling), this occurs sooner (anywhere from seconds to minutes) when I'm playing games, moving files and browsing the web, just general things really. I'm requesting your help, yes you, the one I'm pointing at that's wearing that Hawaii shirt.

anyway jokes aside I'm stumped. I've tried everything from this thread:
If that helps, I will post minidumps when I awaken from my slumber.

I moved your thread to the correct section and yes we have had a few threads about this card. If you've tried everything from the previous thread then I guess there isn't much point in me posting any of the usual tests. Post your dump files and i'll have a look see..
