My games keep crashing! CPU temps were running high with my old cooler, so I thought that may be it (running 95C). So I got a new cooler. Now temps are in the 70s on stress/gaming. Then I upgraded my RAM, still crashing.

Example would be that I play 2-3 games of Halo Infinite, and then it will crash mid game. There is occasional stuttering beforehand, but nothing crazy. Same happens in Destiny 2 and Kerbal.

Is it my CPU? Is it my GPU? My computer is very clean, not a lot of dust.

Specs: i7-7700k
GTX 1080
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4 2x16gb 3600mhz
PSU 80+ gold
Sandisk SSD
Samsung m.2

If overclocking the cpu set it back to stock.....test.
If using xmp turn it off....test.
How hot is the gpu getting while gaming?
