5700xt drivers causing crashes at random but frequently

Recently, I built my first rig. It is composed of a saphire 5700xt reference, 3700x(stock clocks), 16 gb tridentz 3200, Aorus Pro Wifi x570, and a seasonic 650w platinum psu. I have been recieving crashes at complete random since the beginning of building the pc. There is no rhyme or reason to any time that it has crashed. My pc cannot see that the 5700xt is in slot or read temps or anything on it at any time. When it crashes, the screen either goes black, or freezes the image on screen. If I let it take its course, it will BSOD and then reboot and generally be okay afterwards until recieving another similar crash. I have begun leaving task manager open on my other monitor in order to watch what is happening and since doing so I have noticed that it is occasionally discord that appears to cause the crash as the gpu will begin using 100% of its power on just discord prior to crashing. However, this is not always the case. It has also crashed while idling, browsing the web, watching youtube, and literally at any other time under any other workload. I am running the most recent graphics drivers and the most recent bios, windows, and ryzen master. I have done a fresh windows install, I have done driver updates, I have gotten onto other forums and tried all the recommendations that made sense from that. If someone could please find the solution to my issue I would greatly appreciate it. I have also seen that the same issue is arising for large amounts of the community and causing many people to swap back or swap to Nvidia. This being said, I would very much like to keep my all Red team build so please find the issue.
