Here is some reports from who crashed:

I will try to remember what I have tried to fix it. It is kinda hard because of the many things I have tried.
I have tried:
reinstalling windows many times also from a USB.
Running the memory diagnostic tool and Memtest86 many times and for many many hours. All with no errors found.
I have tried Reinstalling my Drivers with DDU 5 times (or more) and it didn't help.
I have run all the disk check tools like chkdsk, sfc and etc. They said the fixed some corrupt files but I sill got crashing.
I have reset my bios and my GPU oc.
I have done a lot of small tweaks that supposedly fixed it for some users like disabling Fastboot or enabling/disabling write caching on the device on my HDDs and SSDs.
I have tried Tron script and changing my pagefile size.
I have tried DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command to fix corrupted files and found no issues.
I have bought new ram but it didn't fix it. I have tried a different PSU
I have surely tried more things but I can't really think of something else.
I have tried different wires for my PSU and i have tried turning it upside down so it doesn't inhale all the heat from my second GPU and instead, directly gets air from my case bottom filter.
Crash behavior:
The crashes have become much rarer after I have done all the steps above. It usually happens after a couple of hours. But a few weeks ago it happened after 5 minutes in-game. The crashes from the last three days make the computer freeze without any warning and then the computer reboots itself. I also have another problem that I kinda fixed. Whenever I unplug my headset my pc crashes after 10 to 15 minutes with a loud buzzing noise and then the pc reboots. Also when I unplug my Bluetooth my pc freezes and reboots after 10 minutes. I noticed this after my fourth reinstall of windows 10 via USB when pc weirdly crashed after 30 seconds. But then I plugged in my headset and baam it worked. I can now safely unplug my headset without it crashing as long as I don't start any games.

So that's it I think.
I have never used a forum before as I have always fixed my pc problems before this.
Please help me as I am starting to give up fixing this problem.
