strange artifacts on screen

I have been having an issue with artifacting on my screen while running games on windows. I have made sure all drivers are updated and even used DDU to clear any old drivers from the system. for some reason I get these little miscolored blocks going in and out on my screen, mostly while playing games but sometimes even while I am on the desktop with nothing running and I am not sure what to do about this. I have done a full reinstall of windows and all drivers twice now and it still happens but I really don't think it's the gpu since this doesn't happen in a linux environment. I installed multiple different linux distro's and ran games to test this and I never once got any of the artifacting. Has anyone else experienced this and is there anything that I can do to fix it?


System Specs:

Ryzen 5 5500

Asrock A520M mobo

32GB ddr4 3200 RAM


800W Gold PSU



   After testing in linux with no issues at all I went back to a windows 10 install and the issue started happening right away.
