    AMD GPU crashing when playing game

    Hello, I have had a problem for about the last week on my Ubuntu 18.04 machine. I recently upgraded my GPU to a RX 580, but now it seems to crash every time I've played a game for a bit. This time interval isn't constant, it can vary from after a few minutes up to an hour. When the crash happens, the screen freezes, but the rest of the system is still running. I can still do stuff like REISUB and SSH into the machine. Things I've tried so far include reinstalling the mesa-vulkan-driver and ubuntu-desktop, but this didn't help with the issue. Can anyone recommend any solutions?
    Thank you for any answers!

    Some info on your machine please. What GPU were you using previously?

    Right, I previously used a Nvidia GTX 960. Other than that my kernel version is 4.15.0-51-generic and my graphics driver is X.Org Radeon RX 580 Series (POLARIS10, DRM 3.23.0, 4.15.0-51-generic, LLVM 7.0.0) Version 4.4 (Compatibility Profile) Mesa 18.2.8

    I just ran a stress (glmark2) test for about 30 minutes, and the temperature stabilized from 66-75 degrees

    Did you remove the Nvidia driver?

    No, I had not. I have now done so, and will report back if the problem persists. Thank you very much!

    I removed all nvidia drivers, but this unfortunately didn't solve the problem

    I have tested some games throughout the day, and here is the ones I have found to be crashing: Hearts Of Iron IV, Starcraft (Running on WINE), XCOM 2, Dirt Rally and Project Cars 2 (Running on Proton). I have also not been able to make Minecraft or Rimworld crash. I don't know if this will help, but here you go.
