Constant crash on two games with recent drivers


System Used: Asus Z170 Pro Gaming Motherboard - Corsair Vengeance LPX 1x8 RAM - WD Scorpio Blue HDD
CPU SKU: i5-7500
GPU SKU: Intel HD Graphics 630
Processor Line: Kaby Lake S
System BIOS Version: 3805
CMOS settings: N/A
Graphics Driver Version:
GOP/VBIOS Version: N/A
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
OS Version: 1809
Occurs on non-Intel GPUs?: N/A

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Play Overwatch for a while. Doesn't matter if the settings are low to the point of disfiguring characters or not, crashes anyway.
2. Play Warframe for a while; same results, even with 50% dynamic resolution.

Expected Results:

Just to not crash.

Actual Results:

Constant crash and "display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered" events on Event Viewer. 

Additional Information:

I only play those two games constantly so they're the only ones giving me trouble. They don't hang at all when drivers are rolled back to version but that seems to be the last one to work properly, every new driver results in crashing. I'm currently using it so I can play but since it's a really old driver both games have sudden fps drops which are really annoying.

Problem persists on Windows 1903 and the newest driver,

Tried to play other games (Destiny 2 and Apex Legends) and both shared the same problem.
