Turns out my 780 ti is faulty / constantly crashing in game - what are last measures i can do to see if i still has some life left in it?

So i've had the crashes for a long long time now, the only difference is that the crashes seem to occur more frequently in games. It used to be gpu intense games, now it has been crashing in rocket league as well.

It took a while but after swapping in the gpu for an old 7850 radeon i had lying around. I've finally come to the conclusion that yes, it is indeed my gpu at fault. No more crashes in game ever since.

What would you guys do as last measure? Would injecting more voltage into this thing possibly solve my problems? OR a custom bios?

Last I remember i couldn't really do much with the voltage unless I install a custom bios, right? Lets just say, i'm ready to fully end its life with the measures I take.

I take it the oven option is not a good thing with an oven that I regularly use for cooking (toxic fumes etc.). right? Is going for custom bios my best choice?

Advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The reason i've come to this conclusion, that it must indeed be the gpu is because prior to this build. I had:

i5 3570k @ 4ghz
8gb ram
ssd
enermax cpu (not sure which one exactly but at 625w)

and i had those problems as well.

Now in the new system (about 6-7 months old now)

5820k
16gb ddr4 ram
ssd
corsair rmx 650w psu

I have the same problems. This kinda leads me to believe that since really everything is new except for the gpu and ssd, that indeed it must be the gpu. After switching the 7850 for the 780 ti i've had 0 issues. So I'm actually convinced that it must be the gpu. I might lend it to a friend if he feels like it and ask him to play around with it. But as I said, i doubt it's my pc.
