I have the 380 Nitro 4Gb, with same problems, random lockups and artifacts galore. Plus when hooking up my 2nd monitor, it was nothing but problems. Both screens flicker, and again cause the system to lock up. I always do a clean install with latest DDU. Nothing I tried, other than installing previous drivers solved my problems.

I've got the same problem. Install new driver, screen flashes and then goes black until I use the AMD cleanup utility to run no drivers except from Microsoft Basic Visual Driver. It had problems installing on my laptop as well, bt I got that fixed by running the cleanup utility and then re-installing. THis, however, did not work on my PC

...I'm also seeing a trend that we all have Sapphire R9 3xx cards...
Having the same issues here. No BSOD, but will get screen flickers and artifacts when loading up any game.
The issue I had was the return of the Black Screen -> Static -> Green Screen cycle. My best suggestion is get into safe mode, remove 16.12, reinstall 16.9 then get the hotfix to 16.11 drivers. It seems they broke everything they fixed with the 16.11 that they originally broke in 16.9...sad really as this seems to be a common thing with every fresh set of drivers launched.
Also that doesn't bode well for the X370 and Zen line if they can't get the drivers to work properly.
Maybe AMD can hire someone from Nvidia to make a working driver?
