Question My gpu keeps spiking at 100% and then my game crashes.

Mar 28, 2020
Every single time when I open up a game lets say R6, my gpu spikes at 100% and then my game crashes. I testes all my hardware it seems to be working all fine. I think it's software related, because I also get blue screens verry often with errors like:"System service exception, kernel security check faillure, kmode exception not handled" and I'm not really good with pc's this is just my first build so I don't know anything about software and hardware.
These are my specs:
CPU=Amd ryzen 7 2700x 8 core
GPU= Asus ROG 2060 super 8gb
MB= MSI b450 thomahawk max
RAM= Corsair vengeance rgb pro 16gb 2x8gb
PSU= Corsair TX-M series TX750M V2
SSD= WD blue 1 tb ssd m.2
HDD= seagate 2tb 4y/o hdd

Btw this is my first build ever and its windows 10
