New GPU ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 OC edition after installing a lot of games i play crash every time

Yesterday i installed a new GPU the ASUS STRIX GTX 1060 OC edition. I format my disk make a new clean install of the windows.
After trying to play some games, i am having a lot of crashes. The games i tested is overwatch and GTA V.
I have done the following steps but nothing helped.
1. my windows is up to date
2. my GPU drivers is up to date
3. no background apps running when i am playing
4. ran the repair tool (blizzard repair for the games), all good
5. my GPU is factory overclocked but tried to downclock it using ASUS GPUTweakII (a utility app from the manufacture) it lets me only downclock it 200MHz ( i have done this step because a lot of games may have issues with an overclocked GPU)
6. Reset my video driver settings
7. no overheating components
8. power management is set to high performance
9. ran System File Checker, windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations
10. ran memtest86 for about 10 hours and no errors found
