Driver crash with gtx 660, please help

Hi, I recently got a new PC, and I have a problem when I game on it. Basically, it shows me this message when the game crashes ''Display driver has stopped working but has recovered''. I also tried Heaven Benchmark and it showed me that error at some point. So what is the problem here? Is it the graphics card? Knowing that the temperature is less than 35..
My specs are:
GeForce GTX 660 2GB
8gb Ripjaws X Series RAM (2 x 4gb)
AMD X8 FX-8320 Eight core processor
cosair CX600 600 watt power supply
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard
Thank you

    Install MSI Afterburner.

    Reduce clock speed by 30mhz.

    See if that fixes the problem.

    This is the windforce version, so do you think it's okay to install that?

    Yeah totally fine.

    Usually these driver crashes are due to an unstable overclock - rarely this can happen at factory settings. Reducing the speed a tiny bit normally fixes the problem.

    It's -30 now. By the way, this issue started when I used asus auto OC. And I can't tell now if the problem is fixed, I need some time becuase it crashes once an hour or something
  5. Make sure you click apply on afterburner, and select the option to apply on start up.

    Try downloading and installing Unigine Valley and running extreme HD, thats pretty good at showing up instability.
