vega 56 random crashes

I have just recently purchased a sapphire vega 56 and pretty much ever since i got it i have been getting serious crashes on just about every game i play (mostly Destiny 2 and Rainbow Six Siege.) the games just lock up and then black screen and i'm booted to my desktop with no mouse functionality. if i'm lucky i can navigate to the task manager and kill the game with my keyboard but if not i have to reboot my whole system. I have searched high and low for a fix but nothing seems to be working . every driver revision does it and ive tried close to ten now. i really dont know what to do and i think i'm about to return my card.

edit: it should probably be noted that i had upgraded from an rx 480 and NEVER had an issue like this and I have tried the 17.11.3 hotfix and 17.11.4 revision and r6s crashed multiple times on both drivers.



my system:
windows 10 home 64 bit

intel core i5-7400

msi bazooka 250m mobo

EVGA 750B2
8gb ddr4@2400mhz
sapphire vega 56
nixeus vue24 @144hz w/freesync via displayport




any help would be greatly appreciated.
