RX 480 freezing randomly

I just got an XFX 480 GTR 8GB yesterday, after playing World of Warcraft for about 40 minutes my system started freezing randomly for a good second. I exited the game and it continued doing the same thing on the desktop. I watched netflix for about 30 minutes and it continued doing it, reboot doesn't solve much. I noticed that in wattman most of the time this occurs (not sure if it's every time) the frequency spikes down to 300mhz. If I changed wattman from frequency to dynamic the freezes got way worse in game to the point that I could barely exit.

 

My system:

- XFX 480 GTR 8GB

- Desktop

- Windows 10 64bit Anniversary Update

- Crimson Edition 16.8.2 Hotfix drivers

- Main monitor: Dell U2715H @ 2560x1440 DisplayPort, Second Monitor: LG IPS235 @ 1920x1080 HDMI

- Asus Z170 Pro Gaming

- Intel Core i7 6700K

- EVGA SuperNova 650GS Modular (80+ gold) (running in ECO mode)

- 32GB DDR4 ram
