""If I can't solve it I'll buy a 1070"" well alrighty then. Here's your answer....lets see if you like it.
You don't say which graphics card you have, but it doesn't matter
Delete all your Asus supplied (third party) controls. It's conflicting with Wattman/AMD controls:

I figured out the issue and a solution.
I have an Asus GPU, so I had the Asus GPU Tweak software installed. After installing the update and watching what happens on reboot, I discovered that the crash happened as soon as GPU tweak started, and that it was accompanied by a message about wattman being reset. I knew I had a slight "over"clock on my GPU, but I didn't even think about that being the cause of it. I booted into safe mode, opened up services and disabled the ASGT service (Asus GPU Tweak). When I restarted.... everything worked properly! I then uninstalled the software. Looks like I'll be doing all my adjustments through the built in AMD software from now on.......

I'm so sorry I got the RX 480 from Asus the last week and this is anoying. I'll give it a month, if don't work bye bye, but I really like the card so is sad. Thank you very much for your reply, I'll try uninstalling the software from Asus. Thank you.
I have freesync monitor + asus rx 470 and im already starting process of rma since there is no hope for amd.
Probably first time ima switch to nvidia and as you can see on many threads thats the only solution to our problems right now.
