MSI RX 570 checkerboard artifacts on game launch

I have recently bought a brand new RX 570 after I had experienced similar problems with another RX 570 (ASUS ROG Strix). I assumed there was an internal problem with the first card, so I returned it. After purchasing a new card, the exact same problem occurred, which was a checkerboard artifact pattern, and then the game crashed. Sometimes it will reboot the entire PC. Here is a list of things I have already done to try and fix the problem:

Reinstalled drivers

Downgraded drivers

Installed through safe mode

Used DDU to uninstall and reinstalled through safe mode

Reseated the graphics card

Cleaned the entire PC

Tried different monitors

Reinstalled Windows 10

Booted off of brand new drive

Adjusted power settings through AMD global tuning

I haven't found a solution yet. The thing that really bugs me is that the same problem occurred on two separate graphics cards. I should also mention the PC is built out of a Dell Optiplex 7010 and it is running on legacy bios.

Intel Core i5-3570 @3.4 GHz

Clean the PCI slot on your motherboard (so graphics card slot) with an old dry clean toothbrush. Or use 2nd slot.
