For the Last 6 months, I encountered random crash playing skyrim on my Linux stack. The computer crashed with a random play time: from a minute to rarely an hour.

I ve tried everything: testing memory with memtest, monitoring cpu and cgu temp, everything is under 50C degrees in full charge.

What can I do to fix this?

Here is the solution i found to solve these crashes / freezes :

it appears it is Mesa drivers related, according to an article on phoronics and this particular issue

Seems like, beyond a Team Fortress 2 issue, it occurs in many other titles using openGL on AMD graphic cards.

On Ubuntu :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/pkppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
