D3D device lost, constant crashing help

Many games crash on my new system, "d3d device lost" to name one of the crash notes.
This is my system:

CPU: i7 6700k

GPU: Asus
ROG STRIX-GTX1070-O8G-GAMING

MOBO:Gigabyte
GA-Z170X-Ultra Gaming

My drivers are all up to date I have no idea what else would cause the problem. It also couldn't be windows I've verified everything.
Some the game that crash are: Overwatch, Rust, Playerunknowns Battlegrounds and Witcher 3. Also they play fine until they crash.

Any reply I would be very happy :D

  1. When you say "new system", is this a pre-built or one you built yourself? What is the power supply brand and model? Is anything overclocked? Check for temps in the system while it's under load? Driver up to date for the motherboard?

    The drivers are up to date, the power supply model and brand is the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W, the graphics card is factory overclocked; this system was built by myself and the temps have never been above 60C.

    Should not be an issue with the power supply it's a good quality one. Has the system ever worked? You may want to check with the video card vendor and see what they say.

    Yeah everything works fine and then it just crashes, I've even today used DDU and removed all drivers and reinstalled them again... which leads me to think the card itself is broken? maybe... potentially..?
    I don't know what to do at this point.

    I also should mention I've had some BSODS I should have said that earlier, I've had 2 system service exception errors and before I completely reinstalled the drivers I had one of those and a system thread exception not handled.
