dxgi_error_device_removed crysis 3 how to fix the problem

I overclocked my GTX 680 2GB using EVGA precision X. tried to test it with Crysis 3 and within 10 minutes it crashes with the error: dxgi_error_device_removed

Also the display driver crashes and my screen blacks for a few seconds

so I got rid of the overclock on GPU and still with the same problem

checked the temps it doesn't go above 64 degrees and my CPU never does above 56 degrees

searched everywhere and no solution

went to event viewer and it lists the error message for the game crashing because of dxgi_error_device_removed

    I have wiped my 2 drives installed windows 7 and crysis 3 again and updated to latest drives for my GPU motherboard and tried to play it again but still the problem after 30 minutes no overheating no weird sounds

    but ive removed an factory overclock on my EVGA GTX 680 FTW and it worked!

    You are wrong sir. I'm in your future: 9/5/2015, and still the issue persists (Driver: 355.82, OS: Win 10 Pro). In my particular case, my Crysis 3 is from Origin, and Repair Game helps a little, but after 15-30 min. game crash, but some sporadic times it doesn't. So, IMO, this is a Crysis 3 bug, not yet solved. Hopefully you read this reply and greetings!
