RX580 crossfire crash and reboot during gaming

I had recently purchased 2 MSI RX580 Gaming X 8G cards. I tested the crossfire function with Furmark, 3D mark, and heaven 4.0 for hours without any issue. Also, individual cards seem work OK except some artifacts can be observed when I install and uninstall the drivers (not always). I use Tomb Raider (2013) and Nier: Automata to test the Crossfire Function, and I got randomly reboot during gaming. I keep everything in stock but the restarting persists.


I first suspects one of the card is defect, but I haven't seen any reboot issue when using individual card. Also, both cards works great in ETH mining without any errors. So, could it be that the PCIE 2.0 x 4 is causing the issue in Crossfire mode? Why everything works fine in those benchmark and test programs? Thank you!
