My Problem: So at times my PC will freeze up and the screen will glitch, if this happens while listening to music or watching a video the audio will still play as this happens. This glitching can last 1-3 seconds all the way to 10 - 20sec, after the glitching is done the screen will either display nothing(black screen) or will blue screen with the stop code VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE(This does not happen as much). From what I can see the glitching happens on the start up of chrome, when waking up the monitor, starting a video in chrome or when logging in or starting Windows. This has also happened in a few games in the past such as GTA V and 7 Days to Die, but for the most part games have not had this issue.
Things I have tried: Reinstalling Windows 10, Updating AMD drivers, Updating Intel Chipset and Drivers, Updating BIOS to 7.10, Replacing GPU through RMA, remove my CPU overclock.
CPU: i5 6600k @ 4.4Ghz w/ Hyper 212 Evo
GPU: ASUS ROG Strix RX 470 4GB OC Stock
MOBO: ASRock z170a-x1 (NOT z170a-x1/3.1)
RAM: 16GB(8GBx2) @ 2400Mhz
Storage: 120GB SDD(Boot Drive), 1TB HDD and 120GB SSD(Because I ended up with 2)
PSU: Corsair CX650m
System Manufacturer: Custom Build by Me
OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit
Age of Install: About 1 month
Original OS: Windows 8.1(Purchased by me)
Just a note about my motherboard. One of the RAM slots is damaged from a hair that caught fire in it. This was not done by me, as an employee at Canada Computers was installing the RAM at the time trying to fix another problem with the system. I was told that the motherboard should be fine other than the slot and RAM would be useless.
Other than that, thanks in advance for your help.
