    Recurring BSOD
    I'll start off with that nifty tool suggested by the site.

    So far, I only get this bluescreen when I play League of Legends. I've played Dragon Age: Inquisition, World of Warcraft and Shadows of Mordor - all at maximum settings - without any problem. Prior to bluescreens, I was receiving a League specific error of 183, which was failure to create minidump. I don't know why, but I do know that issue has stopped happening ever since I did a full uninstall and driversweeper of my former AMD drivers. I recently upgraded from a HD 7850 to an R9 290, and that's around when this issue started.

    I've ran memtest, no errors. I don't remember the exact runs, but I left it on overnight.
    I've ran a Video Memory Stress Test and received no errors.

    I can play League and it will happen just about every time. It's never happened multiple times in one gaming session. I've done a full reinstall of League as well.

    I'm also receiving errors like these in Event Viewer:

    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

    Just recently, I received one of these:

    A fatal hardware error has occurred.

    Component: AMD Northbridge
    Error Source: Machine Check Exception
    Error Type: HyperTransport Watchdog Timeout Error
    Processor ID: 0

    The details view of this entry contains further information.

    It was the first one ever.

    I seem to also only ever have one copy of a dump file (the most recent) for any of these errors.

    I have not tried testing with my HD 7850 yet, but when I gamed with it I still had the error 183. I hoped my upcoming upgrade would solve that.

    League appears to also be the ONLY game this occurs in, but it's also the one that I play the most, so I don't want to throw that out as a reliable bias (although I somewhat have).

    Honestly I don't know, but reading through I have a thought.

    Have you, or have you tried, installing the game with admin rights?
    Only asking because of the permission errors. Seems like the game is trying to read/write to a file with higher permissions than the game has, and is then getting blocked and crashing.
