Ok. Glad you are installing the right drivers. Two other thing I can think of right now:
1, update to BIOS 7403 (you said earlier you hadn't tried that). Some nice fixes throughout BIOS updates on your board.
2. If the BIOS update didn't help, do a fresh install with the latest drivers at the time of install.
You might have gotten me wrong. I updated BIOS after someone suggested it in this thread.
I'm currently setting up a fresh Ubuntu installation and i'm going to try to run some games there. (i was previously on windows 10)

Tried running DOOM 2016 on Ubuntu today. FPS was fine and all on max settings but i still had the freezes. Only difference was that it eventually unfroze after 5 seconds. Still unplayable in my opinion sadly. Had some performance stats up that was built into doom and GPU numbers were jumping trough the roof during these moments.
I'm out of ideas boys.

Ok. What are you using to check temperatures during gameplay? I might suggest CPUID HWMonitor unless you are using something else that keeps your highest temps on file. What CPU cooler are you using?

I have been following this thread because it has me intrigued.

You have tried many things so I got some things to suggest.
You can almost rule out software problems if you do a clean install of windows maybe even in another HDD or SSD and having only that plugged to the system. If the problem still remains, it's hardware related (most probably).

To see if the GPU is faulty, try it in another system and see if it's problematic or not.

I use CPUID yeah and this is the cpu cooler https://www.amazon.co.uk/Noctua-am4-CPU-refoidisseurs-radiators-600-RPM/dp/B075SG1T3X/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1511537706&sr=8-19&keywords=am4+cpu+coolers

I didn't try to unplug my hdd and ssd not running OS yet but should that have any impact on performance if no files are used from those? I will give it a shot tho.

If you do a clean install and remove any other HDD/SSD you rule out conflicts that might happen with previous installed software/games.

The main purpose is to see if your system with a fresh clean install of OS, the GPU drivers installed and a demanding game that you previously had problems with, runs fine or with issues. If it runs fine then it's software related.

Sounds like it could be a hardware issue. Is your card still under warranty?
Yes i found out a few days ago that it actually is. I got my hand on a 980 TI that i'm going to test in my computer before i decide to send my own back the to retail for a check.

I sent my 1080 TI back to the place i bought it from because it had been malfunctioning over the past 2 years and today i got a mail about them sending me a ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER DUAL EVO OC which obviously is great news.
I do kinda want to upgrade to something like an ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ROG Strix OC tho. What do you think? I would have to throw in another 661$ (norwegian prices are a bit higher)
