Games Crashing to Desktop without error message

Hey everyone, just looking for some more options or suggestions for me to troubleshoot this issue im having.

here is my rig:

AMD FX-8350 @ 4.2Ghz (cooled with Corsair H100I V2)
MSI 970 Gaming MB
Ripjaw 2x8gb ddr3 2133mhz ram
Nvidia MSI twin frozr GTX 1070 x2 in SLI (using MSI HB bridge)
Corsair 750Watt PSU
Samsung 850 EVO 500gb SSD (as boot drive)
Seagate 1TB 5.7rpm HD

Windows 10 Pro

So recently i have started to experience multiple games either crashing to desktop without error codes, or freezing with a loud obnoxious buzzing noises, and i have to shut the game down through task manager...

i have tried to deal with this issue my own, and do my own troubleshooting. what i have tried is:

1) Complete uninstall graphics drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller. (Unfortunately couldnt do it in safe mode because my mouse and keyboard need drivers in order to function) and manually reinstalled the most recent drivers from Nvidia.

2) Changed power consumption to favour performance.

3) Verify integrity of game cache through Steam.

4) Performed MemTest to see if any memory leaking from RAM, Results came back unremarkable.

5) Lowered both GPU's to base clock speeds.

6) Disabled SLI and attempted to run games, still crashing.

6) Ran games in Windowed Mode.

7) Attempted to find error logs through Event Viewer, and all i could find was: "Nvlddmkm Display driver has stopped working and has recovered" (Hence the fresh attempts at a fresh driver reinstall)

8) Ive even edited my registry keys to favor a longer reset time.

despite all of this, im still crashing without errors, mostly Fallout4 or subnautica. Ive decided to use DDU and rollback to an older driver, 375.95, and this is where i am at now...

Any tips for me guys? :)

Oh and PS. Ive monitored GPU temps through afterburner, the highest ive seen on my cards were about 75 degrees Celsius.

    Found the issue everyone. I have 2133 RAM, and my MOBO downclocked it to 1600. Ive set up a new profile for them, and ensured the BIOS had the running at 2133Mhz. No crashes yet. My bet is that this was causing some memory leaks, which is responsible for the CTD.

    Hopefully my fix helps others.
