Random BSOD'S RX 470 Windows 7 x64

My system specs:

ASUS RX 470 OC EDITION

DESKTOP

WINDOWS 7 X64

CRIMSON RELIVE 16.12.2

IIYAMA PROLITE E2483HS 67 HERTZ HDMI

MOTHERBOARD IS MSI B85M-E45, I BELIVE, NOT SURE THO. (i had to update bios in order to use my rx 470 and it screwed motherboard id in aida64)

CPU INTEL I5-2500K (stock clocks)

PSU IS SOMETHING 600 WATTS I BELIVE.

12 GIGS OF RAM (8+4)

 

My issue:

I did not find an accurate way to reproduce my issue. It happens randomly in gaming, almost in any game, lately happened for me in such games as dead rising 3, dragons dogma darkness arisen.

So the issue is, when im playing something, i get an absolutely random black screen (no signal detected), sound freeze. I figured thats an BSOD, so i'll attach some minidumps to my post. I did check temps of my card, cpu, did check ram for issues and these are fine, so i think its latest amd drivers to blame (this weren't happening on some early 15.x.x drivers, when i just bought card, i belive). This issue is not related to overclocking, cos this happened on stock clocks.

I feel, that issue might be caused by card being idle for some time after boot and then i pop into game it crashes. Btw, windows 7 power settings set on high perfomance, i always keep my system up-to-date, all dot net packages installed.

I also tried reinstalling my amd drivers using DDU.

BSOD'S Bug check code is always the same 0x00000117, and usually its atikmpag.sys crashing with something. You can check out my minidumps files in a zip file attached to the post.

Thanks in advance.
