New Powercolor 7970 crashing while playing games

Hi everyone! I just buyed an PowerColor HD7970 3GB GDDR5 (V3) and while I play games in the first 2-3 minutes, the computer crashes... I have installed the latest drivers, even a beta version. The temperature at the moment of the crash is about 72-73 degrees so i don't think it is about that. Anyone who can help? I am using an asrock M-4 and a i7 3770k processor with 16GB ram...

    Actually they display stopped working.. it gave me a black screen... I actually just changed the refresh rate from catalyst and it seems to work...! I have opened crysis 3 for about five minutes and it seems ok... i hope this works..
