RX 470 gives random black screens and BSOD's

I bought an XFX Black Edition RX 470. After installing the latest drivers, I could play some games normally. But after restarting my PC, my screen goes black for 1 or 2 seconds and then returns to normal. That happens several times after booting Windows 10, and after a few black screens, it appears a BSOD with the message VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE atimkpag.sys (or something).

I also tried to install 16.7.3 drivers, and happens the same problem, the difference is that the black screens happens while installing the drivers.

That problem doesn´t happen with my old Geforce 8400GS. I had to reinstall this old card, otherwise I can´t use my computer, since I can´t boot properly because of the BSOD.
