PC keeps crashing during games.

Hey guys, I thought i'd try out these forums and see if I could get a solution to my problem. I have been getting crashes during my gaming sessions lately and can't figure out the cause. I thought it was my overclock on my gpu but i've backed the OC down to almost stock speeds and i'm still getting crashes. Then I thought it could be my cpu. Which is an 6700k on a newer z270 mobo chipset designed for the 7700k but with the bios update. It's also OC'd to 4.6 ghz on an 280mm AIO that keeps it pretty freakin cool while a 100% load at around 72 to 75 celsius. But yet I digress.. still crashing. To be fair it takes awhile sometimes for it to crash, say around an hour or two. But still very annoying. Not sure what it is. So if you guys can help i'd really appreciate it. My parts list is as follows.

Asus Maximus Hero ix z270 Mobo i7 6700k @4.6GHz Kracken X61 AIO 16GB of ddr4 Crucial Ballistix RAM at 2400MHz EVGA GTX 1080TI Hybrid FTW3

Sounds to me like your OC isnt stable. 4.6Ghz is pretty susbtantial for a 6700K. Have you tried removing the OC to see if the problem reoccurs?

I have ran RealBench at 4.6GHz for an hour and it never crashed once. So I'm pretty sure it's an stable OC. But you never know.

Sometimes a "stable" OC will run fine in stress tests but crash in games because the OC isn't truly stable. My Ryzen 5 1600 had a "stable' OC to 4.0 with a 24 hour Aida stress test, but 15 minutes of gaming crashed the system. I had to back it down to 3.9 OC
