Display Driver crashes on RX 460

Am using an RX 460 2gb with a 650w Corsair PSU on Windows 10. I got the card on Friday and after trying the latest driver 16.8.2 my game locked up after about 30 seconds. I used DDU to uninstall everything and installed the 16.7.3 drivers. They seemed to work better. I was able to play without any crashes or so I thought. Some games work better than others it seems. Played for hours yesterday, then switched games and got black screen and crash after 10 mins. The errors I get are, "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." , The program (game name) stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. If I have Crimson open I will also get Faulting application name: RadeonSettings.exe, version: 10.1.1.1641, time stamp: 0x578d4d34

 

Played last night, crash after 10 minutes, thought it was because I had Crimson open so I made sure it was closed. Was able to play for 30 minutes without a crash so I thought that was what fixed it. Played today and the same game crashed after only a couple minutes (crimson not open). I'm really lost for words. I don't know what else to try.

 

Is this hardware related? Driver related? /shrug

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

 

Edit: Went ahead and ran DDU again, and this time installed 16.7.3 minimal setup since that was what autodetect suggested and I haven't tried it yet. Just played the game that I crashed on earlier and had no problems at all. However, I played earlier without any problems and then came back to the game and got a crash so I may just be getting lucky right now. Will have to give it a few. If I can make it an entire day without crashes, then progress will be made.
