NVIDIA drivers causing random blackout

I just installed Fedora 22 and (after disabling the Nouveau drivers due to this bug ), I installed the Nvidia proprietary drivers from the CUDA repository. This works fine, except now, 2-3 minutes after Fedora starts up the screen goes black. I have tried uninstalling the CUDA drivers and reinstalling from RPMfusion. I have tried uninstalling all of the above and installing the binary blob from the Nvidia site. I have tried installing the old 304 drivers. Always the same result.

The GPU works in another machine running Ubuntu 14.04, but 15.04 on this machine has the same issues as Fedora 22 when installing the Nvidia drivers.

Any suggestions to how I can diagnose this problem? I am drawing a complete blank here. Even if it was possible to fix the Nouveau drivers, using them would not be an option as the PC is mainly for CUDA development.
