I recently completed my first build:

-i7 7700k overclocked to 5ghz @1.27 vcore (aida64 extreme stress test for 24 hours)
-EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 +40 clock +400 memory
-MSI Z270 Gaming M7
-Corsair h115i
-2 x 16GB Corsair 3000hz DDR4 Ram
-Samsung 850 500GB SSD
-WD Black 2TB HDD
-Windows 10 Pro (most recent update)

I downloaded Shadow of Mordor and Shadow Warrior 2. First thing I noticed is 100fps and 130 fps looked as choppy as 30 fps on a console does. Very odd. About 20-30 mins into playing either game I would either get a complete crash and system forces restart or the fps would suddenly drop from 100 to 30 and stay there until I would restart (GPU usage would suddenly shoot to 99% from 70-98% when the massive frame rate drop would occur). I checked GPU and CPU temps: no issues. CPU usage was 30-50%: no issue.

I called EVGA and they suggested to run Heaven and Firestrike and share the scores with them. I did and they said all the numbers were good. They suggested to remove Razer Synapse software, which i did. I RMAed the mobo, as well, to no avail. I am at a loss with what the issue could be. The only other thing I did was switch the option in the BIOS from "UEFI and Legacy" to "UEFI". Not sure why that would cause any issues. I appreciate any suggestions! Thank you!

-I removed my GPU drivers with DDU in safe mode and reinstalled the nvidia drivers with the clean install option.

Bios and motherboard drivers are current

I'm out of town, but I need to take the OC off the CPU and see what happens. I took the OC off the GPU and had the same issues.
