Area-51 R5, Intel XTU, blue screen

Hello I have a 4 month old Area-51 R5.  I have gotten 2 blue screens today.  I see these often over the past 4 months.  This typically happens when playing Division 2, WoW, or Overwatch.  Getting tired of it so I thought I'd try my luck here.
My specs:
- Intel Core i9-7900X CPU @ 3.30 GHz   3.31 GHz
- 32 GB RAM
- GTX 1080
- Windows 10 home 64 bit
Here is a screenshot from SupportAssist History regarding the blue screens: 
Bug check code                0x00000050
Bug check parameters      0xffff9f0b296cd000,
Device name                    Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility Device Driver
Driver version        
Driver path                       C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\XtuAcpiDriver.sys
From within SupportAssist, I have run the "Get Drivers & Downloads".  Unfortunately there is nothing to update.  I also keep my video card drivers up to date, so I don't think that's the problem.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Shift F7,


Try by resetting Intel XTU to basic, meaning no overclocking.
