If your cpu has no driver, how is it working at all?
Seriously, all the drivers you need can be found on PRIME Z270-A | Motherboards | ASUS Global
First, however, you should make certain that you have the proper bios (from ASUS) for your board and CPU, which is 0604 or greater.
This is your processor: Intel® Core™ i7-7700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.50 GHz) Specifications
It has Intel® HD Graphics 630. If you are using these graphics, I would get the driver from the ASUS link I provided.
If you are using an add-on graphics card, visit that manufacturer's website and get the latest graphics driver.
I would also make sure other drivers, as provided on the ASUS site, are updated.
Then, if you are still having problems, report back with more information, and your operating system (which should be Windows 10), and your cooling solution.
I have the proper BIOS installed. I have the latest Nvidia Driver. I installed the Hotfix, and the Chipset Driver.
I am running Windows 10 Home 64-Bit. Here is my DxDiag: ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this r - Pastebin.com
What is your cooling solution and do you know if you are overheating?
Also, have you checked your memory against the ASUS tested memory? https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/PRIME-Z270-A/HelpDesk_QVL/
I have a case with four fans (front, side, rear, and top). CPU has a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO air cooler and GPU has its native fan (EVGA GTX 980 SC). PC is on my desk with solid ventilation on all sides.
I'm using MSI Afterburner to monitor temps. Under load (gaming) CPU temps peak at 65C and GPU at 65C as well. When not under load, GPU is at 35C and CPU is around 30C. Fans are manually set to turn up higher at higher temperatures, GPU 45% at 45C, 80% at 80C. Fan Speed is similar for CPU.
I have not tested my memory. I will test that now.
I'm still having this issue..
Al Hill and mariakatosvich, thanks for your assistance along this thread
As per recommendation from the Al Hill and mariakatosvich, it is correct. Is very important to make sure that you have all the drivers up to date.
Please make sure to confirm the installation of the Chipset Driver.
Drivers and downloads of Asus PRIME Z270
Since what you have is an Asus motherboard, the drivers that you need to install must be available in your manufacturer (OEM) website.
The same website confirms that your board supports Intel® Z270 Chipset (this chipset is compatible with the Intel® Core™ i7-7700 Processor) if your OEM has listed the Intel® Z270 Chipset, it means that they have to provide you with their owm proper drivers**.

I was able to fix my problem, one of the sticks of Ram that was sold to me by the store was dead and needed replacing.
In the past week I have had no issues with crashing.
Thank you everyone for your help, I really appreciate it!
