    Constantly getting CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT, while playing anything.
    GTA V it happens 10-20 minutes of starting the program.
    CS:GO it crashes 20-30 minutes later.

    I've tried analyzing the DMP files but they point to ntkrnlmp.exe.

    I've reloaded the OS on the entire PC twice.

    Chipset and intel drivers are from MSI's Support website. They should be latest.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    As you said, not much info in the dumps.

    Try running with Driver Verifier enabled, see if that shakes out something:

    Driver Verifier is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.
    Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    Pay close attention to
    and make sure the correct boxes are checked.

    It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

    Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

    What we're looking for is a BSOD with a mini dump that will tell us what driver caused it.

    Well Running Driver Verifier my system BSOD but it did not or rather wasn't able to write a dump file, so I'm retesting again.

    Edit: it's been 17 hours and none of my drivers have crashed I'm pretty sure now my PC is just screwing with me.

    As the tutorial states, give it up to 48 hours.
