RX 5700 - Trying different solutions to fix broken drivers

First of all, check out my previous posts:

   1. Multiple games cause Green Screen Crashes, Full Reboots, etc.

   2. Yet more issues with RX 5700

   3. RX 5700 Still crashing with Green Screens/Black Screens


After testing several solutions, I stumbled upon a really interesting one in THIS post made by goosethesecond where colesdav explained how you can have Adrenaline 2019 GUI/UI with the latest drivers. Looked good to me so I said why not give it a try! Colesdav recommended using version 19.12.1 in combination with the latest available driver version which in my case is version 20.7.1 as of writing this post, but I used version 20.4.2 since it's labeled with WHQL certificate. The work around was successful and I started up Squad since I know the crashes occur while playing this game (and many more, but I don't have them installed). Sadly, it crashed after ~20 minutes of gameplay which is longer than usual (I usually get about ~10 minutes of gameplay before the crash). After this I got sick and tired of testing various driver versions and I decided to go back to version 19.7.5 which I have saved on my Google Drive since that's the by far most stable version since I got this GPU. I've tried literally every single driver version and I must say that they are complete garbage when paired with an RX 5700. I'm seriously thinking about switching to Nvidia even though I've been Team Red my whole entire life... If anyone has had any luck in fixing their issues with RX 5700 or RX 5700XT, please post them here! amdmatt please help...
