Yeah its just like board revisions with gigabyte, you cant expect a bios for a Rev5 board to work with a rev 1.1 and vice versa
HWInfo shows mobo from an HP p6616f but no BIOS updates exist on their website.
It also shows my 470 as a Red Devil. Odd but hey, odd is in my nature lol

So far 2 days and no driver crashes. Seems last crash "fixed" itself... I'm def. not complaining though!
I very much appreciate all the help!

Perhaps cleaning the hsf and reinserting the card helped it.

I had a similar issue with my RX580. In games, at random times, the screen would turn black but the game would go on.
After lots of tests, I just got another motherboard, power supply and CPU (upgrade).
Well, popped in the video card and... No more problems.
Might be a bad mobo, or a bad power supply...

Not AMD GPU but same for my previous Nvidia card. Driver would crash. Happens randomly, no schedule. Later PC random restart. Ultimately PSU gave out. Very lucky that PSU didn't claim other victims.

After a Long Search.. this is a Driver / OS conflict

in case you are Using Win10 os build 1803 it seems this issue will not be present for some AMD drivers

once your win10 Build is 1903 , Some AMD drivers are affected by this Distort & maybe BSOD with TDR failure

Unless AMD or Microsoft resolve this matter matter , your best option is to replace card or Mobo

Hope this info Helps

Well, I actually bought a new motherboard, processor and ram and the problem completely went away. It had to do with something on the mobo I'm guessing
