Did you check the Device Manager to make sure everything was being recognized properly?
Device manager looks happy. AMD chipset is installed to latest version from the motherboards website. Even did a reinstall to test game stability without the chipset drivers.

I suppose I could try a hard disk tester for bad blocks, i just used the USB flash drive to install windows on another machine successfully earlier this week. I'm not sayin it isn't corrupt but i'd be surprised. Could make another Fresh windows USB.

About that strange Windows start menu problem, I think I've seen the same recently. It went away after Windows Update was done fully updating stuff.
My motherboard came with the latest drivers (version 3.5 or 35), they don't have any newer revisions. I could try an older BIOS.
Edit: you might be onto something with the windows update thing and the start menu problem, this issue seems to be the least common of the 4 I listed. But since I reinstalled windows so many times I'm wondering if I'm seeing the issue during the update process and think it might be a recurring issue like the others.
So the 5700XT is completely stable in my personal rig. When back in the new computer, system restarts 5 seconds into the Witcher 3
