    ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA + ASUS RX 470 = Freezing watching videos?!

      Well, that's it.

       

      I recently updated some parts of my PC:

      MOBO: ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA

      CPU: Phenom II X4 965 3.4 Ghz

      RAM:Corsair Vengeance 1066 (2x4GB)

      PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600W

       

      I am having issues when watching Youtube videos, the computer freezes, and i can't do anything but hard reset it.

       

      Facts

      - I installed Windows 10 from zero.

      - I user Memtest86 last night for 8hs, with no errors.

      - The CPU and RAM was in use in my previous build, and it worked ok.

      - I have the latest AMD drivers for my card.

      - I disabled hardware acceleration in chrome.

      - I tried changing the Power Energy profiles, on Windows, on BIOS, on AMD Control Panel, no luck at all.

      - I played Dying Light at Max Settings (1080p) for hours with no problem, but I started using Chrome, and it freezed.

      - I have read several threads like this, but still didn´t found a solution.

       

      I got the GPU from Amazon (I'm from Uruguay), so I am hoping not the graphic card itself to be the problem, as it would be almost impossible (and expensive) to return it back.

      Thank you in advance!
