XFX Radeon R9 280X Black Fuzzy Screen

So far with my first computer build it has been nothing but problems and yet again a new and entirely random issue! Randomly while I play a game or even just simple web browsing the monitor just turns black and has a sort of static. I am using audio over hdmi and I can still hear it playing. Another oddity is that the secondary monitor I am using is connected with a dvi to vga adapter works just fine. I don't think it is getting too hot because it occurs while I am just browsing the internet. It seems entirely random. The only way to get it working again seems to be a hard reset.

It might be your HDMI cable, do you have another to try?

Try DVI as your primary output.

Yeah Ill swap it out now and see if it works.

It's been a few hours and I haven't had any trouble so far,

Unfortunately the problem continues. Changing the cable didn't help.
