INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION  Provide your full system info!

The last driver doesn't mean the best driver. Also, i think your DP to VGA adapter may be a source of some problems.

Uninstall all AMD software and clean your system in safe mode by DDU program and install 16.11.5 ​ driver.

latest?cb=20160714105958I did all that and it still happens but it only happens when there some kinda light transition in game like if its dark and you walk by a bright fire the creen will flicker black and then back to the game. And especially when it shows the Hanamura main menu background in Overwatch it blinks alot.

Then you need to try your GPU on another PC.

Faulty RX card it is not a rare case.

Also you can try one of another previous driversPrevious

Do you have your computer power plan set to 'high performance? Do you have the 'Power Limit' set to +50? There are 4 steps. Do not change anything else in Overdrive:
