Consistant System Hangs/Freeze

Hi all,
I have owned a gigabyte rx480 g1 gaming card for about 6 months now, and ever since obtaining it, it has caused severe problems. When I attempt to use this card in any game, doesn’t matter how graphically demanding it is, it causes the screen to flicker for a bit, then ends up going into a system hang causing me to hard-shutdown my pc. I have adjusted the settings in the Radeon Wattman manager app in hopes of providing stability, but I have found no such thing. All my drivers are up to date and I have monitored the temps of both my CPU and GPU. Also, I have tried using the card in a different system to ensure that the card is at fault and not the PSU. I have researched this problem a fair amount and seems to be a somewhat common problem. I have attempted to RMA this card twice, but both times it was sent in, Gigabyte sent it back saying there was nothing wrong with it. I would love to be able to at least use this card somehow, even on regular stock settings, but if I try to run stock, the whole pc crashes. I am hoping to see if there is anything I can do to either try and get stability so I can actually use the graphics card or somehow RMA the card and actually get a fix. Anything is helpful!
