BSOD - HD8970M Crossfire

I am experiencing Blue Screen of Death when running crossfire. The Error is "THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER", Windows provides nothing else.

It has only occurred for League of Legends even with the profile disabled; but when crossfire is completely turned off, League of Legends will run fine. A 2nd test, I can run Metal Gear Solid 5 using crossfire with max settings on a 4k monitor, so I do not think it is a hardware problem.I have had this same issue in the past where no games would run except League of Legends (Ironic), and I found a solution that fixed most games. Run the DDU uninstaller, then install Dell's provided drivers v 15.200.1045 A00, lastly, install AMD's Crimson Edition/ReLive. I have never enabled ReLive, so I do not think that would trigger anything.
