There is an ongoing situation with my GPU fans. Everytime I play games for example like Ark Survival Evolved and play for about 20 minutes the GPU Fans would speed up like crazy and I would get a black screen. If im on discord the person is still able to hear me while I have a black screen however im forced to manually turn off my pc from the power button. Is there any reason specifically why this is happening? Any help is appreciated.
The GPU I have is a AORUS GeForce® GTX 1060 Xtreme Edition 6G
 
A failure after a time smacks of a heat issue.
The fan on a graphics card will speed up under load and try to maintain a temperature of 80c. or so.
What is the make/model of the rest of your parts?
In particular, what is your case and intake fan arrangement?
Try taking the case side cover off and direct a house fan at the innards.
If that helps, look to case cooling solutions.

I don't thinks its a overheating problem, I benchmarked Valley and Heaven and let them both run and it only got up to about 70c max 72c. Also the fans speed up on this game when its only about 50c.
I have an AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Corsair Vengeance 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 3000 MHz
ASUS PRIME B450M-A
EVO LABS 750W
I will try the house fan solution. however if its not a heating problem what else would it be?
 
Under load, a gpu will use increasing amounts of power.
I do not know the quality of your unit, nor the age.
A psu issue is best tested by swapping with a known good quality unit of sufficient power.
550w should be plenty.

Also i don't know if this matter but if i turn down the memory clock on msi afterburner the issue stops. Is there any downsides to turning down memory clock?
It most likely is a psu issue as its not a good psu I have
 
Your card is an overclocked factory card.
Such cards are binned and the better quality gpu chips are used in overclocked versions that can sell for more.
Perhaps your particular card is not as good as the factory hoped.
Turning down the overclock for stability seems like a good idea to me.
I doubt you would notice any impact on performance.
