6800XT System Freezing

Hello guys, so since I've purchased this card (entirely new PC mind you) I've had constant PC Freezes in certain games.
First I had PC freezes during just browsing, which I resolved by disabling HW Acceleration ( Sort of ridiculous considering how much I paid for this card that I have to do this )
After that I've had constant cases of where in certain games my entire PC will freeze up, all my RGB on the RAM/GPU/Mobo/Fans will lock up and the only thing I can hear is the audio. I can't alt tab, I can't ctrl+alt+delete or anything. The only thing I can do is turn it off with the power button.
I have tried disabling MPO, turning off HW Acceleration everywhere, tried downgrading drivers (Diablo 4 doesn't allow you to run outdated drivers mind you).

The interesting thing is that this is also happening on my brothers PC which uses a 5000 Series AMD GPU as well, exactly the same problems.

My PC build:

i5 13600k 
32 GB Ram Corsair DDR4 3600Mhz
RX 6800 XT
Motherboard : ROG STRIX B660-A Gaming WIFI D4
Windows 11
Can't remember PSU name but it's a 850W PSU

Make sure you are using the latest update of the Adrenalin drivers and try to monitor the GPU temperatures when playing that game.  Did the freeze ever happen with the previous video card?

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".
