Solved(EDIT: maybe fixed) Crashes, lots of crashes

EDIT: see comment below

v1.6.0 Build 13578.1041534

Detailed description:
While playing the game for a couple of minutes (10-15) it crashes. It does not matter if you are fighting a battle or just wait in a menu on the campaign map, or even in the strategic overview map.

Reproduction Steps:
- start the game
- do whatever you want in a campaign, just waiting in a menu is enough
- crash to desktop or crash with ".exe has stopped working"

Details of any solutions that have already been attempted:
verified game files through steam; updated all drives, including a fresh install of my grafics card driver through safe mode; tested to play the game with ultra settings and very low settings; played Ghost Recon Wildlands on very high for a couple of hours to test my machines reliability;

Attached: modified.log; preferences script; DxDiag; last Autosave (but it really doesn't matter); OpenHardwareMonitor log (it crashed at 04.04.2017 22:08:21)
I was unable to find a minidump. There isn't even a folder "crash_report" in my C:\Users\Steph\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Warhammer directory.

    I think that I was able to fix my problem somehow.

    I did the following things:

    in my Nvidia control center in the settings for specific programs (for the warhammer.exe):

    - set Vsync to "adaptiv"

    - set texture filtering quality to "high performance"

    - set energy/power settings to "prefer max performance"

    I don't know which one of those settings did the trick (I guess the energy thingy, I read in another thread here, that this setting solved other problems too.), but it works for me. I was just able to play 1h 30min without a crash, that wasn't possible before, at all. (I just stopped, because it's late and I'm going to bed now :D , it didn't crash again.)

    (my settings are in german, so maybe the settings are called differently, but they should be similar)

    I'll test it some more in the next couple of days.

    Yep, it's fixed! No crashes in the last 6h playtime.
