i really dont know whats wrong, ill try to describe the problem the best i could. im not a genius in computers.

rig: msi fm2a85g65 board, a10 5600k, fiendshark cooler, 8gb g.skill 1600mhz, msi r9 270x, 1tb seagate hdd, zalman zm600gt psu, Tt case...

problem: while running msi kombustor, pc shutsdown and resets. i notice the temp of gpu at 61C and apu at 45C, chipset at 38C... at around 20-30% of benchmarking, it just blacks out and and tells me it was a BSOD... i cant seem to figure out whats wrong.. i moved the hdd away from the gpu as well... PLS HELP

i actually havent overclocked it technically speaking coz i just ran the program as soon as i installed it. im still trying to learn how to overclock it when this happens multiple times. the gpu comes preoverclocked at 1080mghz (with msi gaming app )

Then it should be a driver problem I suppose. Had something similar to what you have right now and here's what fixed it:
- Get rid of anything msi or amd related (unistall/delete)
- Restart pc
- Download the latest AMD drivers here : http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
- Install the drivers without any of the extra's MSI deliver
- Stablity test
- 3rd party software installation

Hope this helps. Keep me posted
