New Asus Strix GTX 1070 crashes half of my games

Level 7
I bought an Asus Strix Geforce GTX 1070 OC last friday. It was great in Battlefield 1 for the first day, but on my second day it crashed and I got this Direct X Error:
DirectX function "Dx11Renderer::tryMap" failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED ("The video card has been physically removed from the system, or a driver upgrade for the video card has occurred. "). GPU: "NVIDIA GEForce GTX 1070", Driver: 37633. This error is usually caused by the graphics driver crashing; try installing the latest drivers. Also, make sure you have have a supported graphics card with at least 2GB.

Of course the first thing I did was checking if my card was loose, or something like that. It looked fine. I took it out put it back in. I used DDU and did a clean install of the last NVIDIA driver. But the problems continued with Rise of the Tomb Raider (and BF1 still crashes after 5 minutes). I got this error for Rise of the Tomb Raider:
A problem has occured with your display driver. Your system may not have enough resources to run the game at the selected settings. You can retry using the same settings, or adjust them to lower settings. Make sure you have the latest drivers for your video hardware, and try rebooting your system to help clear up any issues. (0x887A0006:DXGI_ERRO_DEVICE_HUNG)

I also got a lot of other BSOD errors: VIDEO_SCHEDUELER_INTERAL_ERROR, and VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys). The last one is the one I the most, and I have googled it, and done some of the fixes without helping. The Nvlddmkm.sys was missing from windows/system32/drivers, but creating a new one didn't seem to help.

My full system:
CPU: i7-6700k
MOBO: Asus Pro-Gaming/AURA
OS: Windows 10 Pro
MEM: Corsair Vengeance 32 GB 3000 Mhz (I usually have it at 2133)
Cooler: Corsair H110i GT
PSU: Corsair HX850 80+ Gold

Here is an list of games that crashes or get BSOD after 5 minutes:
Battlefield 1
Rise of Tomb Raider
Grim Dawn (this is a surprise is it's not very demanding)
Shadow Warrior 2
The Division

Games that works, and doesn't crashes:
Fallout 4
Just Cause 3
Dark Souls 3
Shadow Tactics Blades of the Shogun
and bunch of indie games like: Neon Chrome: Slain Back to hell, Running with Rifles and Party Hard. Not very demanding games.

I did thought I fix it by using a different SSD with another Win 10 install. I could play Rise of Tomb Raider for 30 minutes without crashing, and also Hitman. But I got error when I was closing the game, and lots of artifacts (pretty much the whole screened is messed up). So a fresh install of Windows 10 might not help that much.

Trying different solutions just made the problem bigger, so I had to switch GPU as it started to crash just while I was in Chrome or just at desktop. It didn't give me error, just a lot of artifacts, a messed up screen and freezed screen. At this point was using MSI Afterburner to give it more voltage to see if that could help. But I had to give up. I heard underclocking might fix some problem, but that seem to just be a temporary solution, and I probably still should RMD that card.

I hope I will get some new fixes to try out, as just fixing the driver doesn't help.

Will lowering the power and temp targets avoid the crash ?
Try increasing the voltage bar to 100% and run the benchmark again*

I just sendt the card back 30 minutes ago. Unfortunatly they didn't have any card in stock and didn't know when they got more, so I might just get my money back. But my GTX 970 still run most game on ultra at 60 fps in 1080p, and as long as I don't get a 1440p monitor it still usable for a year. If they to don't send me a new one I will probably wait to see what AMD does with Vega in the summer, or perhaps get the GTX 1170 when that is released.
