Games freeze and crash with R9 270x

I upgraded to Ryzen a few weeks back and ever since then none of my games have been working properly. I can play for a while, (usually a couple minutes to half an hour), but then it freezes and either crashes to desktop, or freezes completely and I'd have to force a restart. The event viewer usually lists it as "display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered". Other times games crash and the whole PC crashes.

 

Memtest came back fine but Aida 64 fails the memory test so I'm confused to whether this is a software or hardware problem. Otherwise I've tried all the good stuff like reinstalling drivers, clean installing Windows, messing with ram clock speed, etc. I even downgraded the driver to 17.1 from 18.5.1 but it still persists. Any Ideas? I have an R5 1600, MSI B350 Gaming Pro, Asus R9 270X, Kingston DDR4 1x8 GB, and a Evga 500w W1.
