Brand new build, less than a week old. Link: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/Craftyy/saved/KFxvVn
Windows 10. All drivers are up to date including graphics. BIOS is the latest version. No overclocks, other than memory being set to 3200 and CPU being boosted by default by XFR2 and PB2.  
Most of the games I have tried to play keep crashing to the desktop after 2-60 minutes with no error message. So far I have also gotten three blue screen crashes during gaming. Three different errors: "video dxgkrnl fatal error", "irql not less or equal", and "driver irql not less or equal".  
For example, during the intro scene of The Division which is a few minutes long, the game will crash to desktop before getting to the end. During this cutscene, the GPU is 100% utilized, it's running at max clock (1411 mhz, stock boost speed of the card), and it sits between 65 and 68C.  
After running Heaven benchmark for 10-15 minutes, my GPU never went above 75C (fan below 30% at all times), so it doesn't seem like the hardware is the problem here. Maybe the drivers? Or something with Windows? Basically, everything except games runs perfectly fine on my PC.
Could someone please help me find a fix for this? I have tried running the games in windowed borderless but that made no difference. Update to latest video driver again, no change. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
