Windows 7: Frequent BSOD (050,f7,fc,3b,1e), frequent service and chrome crashes

Frequent BSOD (050,f7,fc,3b,1e), frequent service and chrome crashes

Dear Seven Forums,

I'm looking for help regarding my pc that I built 3 months ago.

I am having random crashes of all types:

- 99% of the games crash to desktop after 10-15 minutes (Overwatch,Eu4,Hoi4, CIV V is OK,Witcher 3)
- can't use chrome / firefox for more than 1-2 minutes because of either 'Oops.. something went wrong' or the applications close without error.
- Randomly appearing crashes of antimalware-service and explorer.exe

and of course many blue screens while 'browsing' ,playing

What I've also noticed that I can go playing EU4,Warthunder 3-4 hours without issues and then suddenly keep BSODing the next 4-5 restarts.

I've filled out the PC specs in my profile.

What I've already tried:
-I've reinstalled Win7 3 times and reinstalled Win10 2 times. All of the fresh installs resulted in blue screens.
- I've also tried adjusting BIOS settings like setting tad higher RAM voltage, CPU voltage, running the PCIE in 8x or 4x Mode, and using XMP settings. The recent 3-4 blue screens happened with all the BIOS settings reverted using 'Restore default settings'.
- I've been using 2x4 2400Mhz Kingston DDR4 Rams the first 2 months, but replaced them with the Corsair ones in hopes of solving the BSODs (I've done a clean install + BIOS reset after replacing the RAM)
-edit: I've also tried disabling hardware acceleration in hopes of solving the chrome crashes

Looking for tips to finally be able to identify the faulty driver/hardware

warning   Warning
Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.

Please ensure that all overclocking is removed for RAM, CPU & GPU while troubleshooting.

How are the graphics drivers currently installed? Windows Update or?

I've reset the bios settings again,just to be on the safe side, and I've also reverted back windows to a previous restore point.

I've had Driver Booster installed because the pc was crasing previously using the driver supplied by Asus and wanted to try the software on the newest clean install whether it makes a difference (it didn't).

I've installed the nvidia drivers using the official geforce website; I don't have Nvidia Experience installed.

I wasn't able to install the intel drivers ('Your pc does not meet the minimum requirements), but I'm guessing the built in card must be disabled when PCIe is in use.

DB software make things worse with troubleshooting, many will claim that it helps them but they mostly do not know many things about the software.

The various crashes referencing the DirectX drivers indicates trouble with the graphics drivers, but as it are various crashes I think either the GPU or the slot causes problems. I would suggest to use a different slot if possible to see if it makes difference
