R9 390 Microstuttering/Frame Drop

So I've had this graphics card for a while but I've had this problem for a long time. I never gave it a try to fix it until now and it's actually driving me crazy.


To start off my computer specs are:
16GB Ram 2133 mhz
MSI AMD R9 390
EVGA 750W Gold 80 certified


Some examples about the problem looks like the following on a really not so heavy loaded game called Dungeon Fighter Online (DFOG):


And this seems to happen really often. The really weird thing is I can play games like Overwatch on ultra settings with smooth 100fps+ but the stuttering will also happen now and then. Almost for a split second it seems to happen on any game. Any other time, the card will still work wonderfully.


Here's the things I've tried so far:

Downgraded Radeon Drivers
Upgraded Radeon Drivers to the latest version (Both using DDU)
Overclocked CPU
Use Clockblocker
Disable ULPS
Between other solutions offered in forums, amd reddit, etc.


I just can't seem to find a solution to this stuttering at all and can't find an answer.

Here are some benchmarks:




Some of the weird things I noticed was that my Core Clock usage would spike between 1500MHz which is the max and 150Mhz which is the min. Also GPU Load Spike in GPU-Z spikes incredibly all the time. (Between 0% to 100% instance to instance). This also happened in the afterburner Graph I showed while using unigine heaven's benchmark. Got the stutter and a 0% GPU Load. Not quite sure if they're related.


ANY Help is appreciated!
