Games crash to desktop after about 5 - 10 minutes of gameplay.

GPU: Asus ROG GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Edition (OC'd to +60 offset on the core clock and +500 on the memory clock, GPU voltage @ +50%).
CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K OC'd to 4.4 GHz with 1.270 V on the core voltage. (Cooled by be quiet! Pure Rock).
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LED 16 GB @ 2666 MHz (XMP).
PSU: EVGA Supernova G3 650 watt 80+ gold certified.
Mobo: MSI Z270 Gaming M3.

When I play games such as The Witcher 3, Dishonored 2, Dark Souls 3, most AAA titles, I play the game for like 5 - 10 minutes and suddenly it crashes. I have the latest BIOS version, and Windows 10 update. I've had some problems with incompatibility with my RAM modules (BSOD'ing the entire system due to memory corruption), but was resolved when I updated the BIOS. I was also able to overclock my 6600K to 4.5 GHz with 1.320 V when using my older videocard (GTX 1060 6 GB), but with the GTX 1080 Ti I suppose that my PSU isn't supplying enough power to both my GPU and CPU while overclocked to be able to safely run such AAA games.
I kind of know that 650 watt, gold rated PSU is enough to power both of these components but it could be the reason behind the instant crashes back to the desktop. Weird thing is that I can run Unigine Valley Benchmark for how long I want to (Tried a few hours), as well as using 3DMark Time Spy and Fire Strike which runs stably and seems to be working without any issues and crashes.

Please help as I reeeaaally want to use my GTX 1080 Ti. (I'm planning to upgrade my CPU but trying to save some money now from the purchase of the 1080 Ti).
