Gaming pc Black screens and crashes after installing windows 10.

My 3 year old Gaming pc I built has been crashing and freezing since an OS update to windows 10. It used to run windows 7 and for a little while it had the same problems until I installed the latest drivers and since then have had no problem. Since the OS update whenever I try to install the chipset drivers the PC crashes instantly. And when I run chrome or any kind of video game it crashes in 10 to 30 minutes of playing. I tried to run Prime95 and the pc crashes instantly again.
I went into the BIOS and set everything to run at basic settings (CPU to stock and Ram to 1600mhz), and the pc ran for a little longer before crashing again.

The specs are
CPU: AMD A10 6800k at 4.1ghz
Mobo: G1 sniper A88x FM2+
PSU: corsair Vs650
Ram: G.Skill ares 2133 DDR3 8Gbs duel channel
Cooler: Corsair H75 watercooler
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 960
Harddrive: WD 1tb

    I'd install the windows 10 iso to a flash drive and reinstall the os, or just use the repair my PC option. It could be a driver issue. Best way to know that all drivers for graphics are gone is a fresh install. There's not much you can do. Is something overheating? Have you checked temps at all?

    I've checked the temperatures the CPU hasn't gone over 55 degrees when idling
    And the gpu dosnt go over 50
    Ill try and reinstall the OS with a completely fresh install and see how it goes.
