F1 2017 Causes WHEA_Uncorrectable_Error

Hello, 

I recently picked up my first F1 game, and I've played 4-5 hours. Now I've encountered the problem that my PC crashes due to WHEA_Uncorrectable_Error after playing 20-30 minutes. Any ideas why this is happening? I'm able to play multiple other games on ultra graphics and this have never occurred in any of them. 
I've got a 4690k (not OC), Nvidia 1060 6GB (not OC) and 16 GB of RAM.
The temperatures does not exceed 60 degrees celsius on neither GPU or CPU, the CPU is cooled by a NZXT x62 Kraken.

Have anyone else experienced these kind of problems?

/Fredrik

    Most common is OC though you say not, so if all drivers are updated try Memtest.

    I would run chkdsk seeing that you can play for a while before it fails, suggests more likely a disk sector issue than drivers or ram issues.

    Manufacturer diagnostic better than chkdisk

    @IanX I'll reinstall the game on another disk later today and see if that'll sort things out.
    @steviejay69 Taking both your answers in consideration while trying to solve this.
    Thank you for taking time to answer my question.

    Thanks for replying..
    running chkdsk is still a good idea, as it will block windows away from any bad clusters.  While diagnostic programs do a lot more, chkdsk is simple and quick, it determines where windows will write on a disk, so therefore is why I suggested it as a first point of troubleshooting.
