I presumed you meant Windows version 1703 x64 and not version 1701. Need to update your Windows to the latest Version 1803.  AMD Drivers work correctly when Windows is completely updated via Windows Update.

I also noticed that your Intel is a APU with HD 4000 integrated Graphics.  There is no Intel I4 3570K only I5 3570K. Make sure you have the latest Intel Drivers for your APU and motherboard installed.

In BIOS, do you have the Discrete AMD Graphic board as the main Graphics to be used when booting up into Windows?  Should show something like PEG rather than iGPU in BIOS. Also make sure your Monitor cables are connected to the AMD GPU card and not the motherboard internal graphics port.

If you GPU card works correctly with a previous older AMD Driver. Install that again to be sure it is a newer driver problem or incompatibility. If the older AMD Driver works, then it could just suggest that the latest AMD Drivers requires you to have the Latest Windows installed.
