Clean install of latest driver crashes the RX 5500XT card - Black screen, no fan spin

I'm doing a clean install with following hardsware

  • Gigabyte X570 Aorus elite with firmware F11 default settings
  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • D416GB 3200-16 Fury Black RGB1Rx8 K2KHX    HyperX DDR4 ram 2 sticks  default 2400 mhz
  • Asro8GB D6 RX5500XT Challenger D 8G OC
  • 750 W PSU

After installing the windows updates, installing the drivers, I want to install the latest 20.2.2 firmware for the graphics card, the screen blinks black ones on install, then turns black and the card just stops (no fan spin, nothing)

Reverting to a restorepoint restores it.

No problems with the windows driver,  though, but I need the additional speed that the windows driver doesn't support.

Any help is much appreciated.
I've already spent too much time on this and I'm thinking of returning the card at the moment.
