    So i bought a 1080ti. I installed it and it boots only windows recovery mode. It booted twice into windows. Everything looked fine and then it crashed. I have restarted the cmos, both bios, changed the power supply, tried it in another computer, which always booted into windows but was crashing afterwards i think that it was due to not enough wattage. Only thing that i got left is to open it up and check all the cooling system.

    OK, you are posting in a hardware forum and no [other than you] has any idea what hardware you are running. Post All of your exact specs. Do not post 500W pw supply; post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

    First thought is video drivers, although those usually don't cause crashing. And crashing in two different computers would hint at a faulty card.

    Will it stay in the BIOS for extended periods? Will it boot into Safe Mode?

    One thing I see is a cx pw supply. The cx series from corsair is for a basic build ie onchip video, running office, etc; NOT running a gaming card. The only corsair units up to running a gaming type video card are the AX, HX, or RM models. The cx pw supplies are fine for what they were designed to do. I even have one installed in my home theater system however I would never think of gaming with that system.
    Next unless you followed the procedure outlined below, it is possible to damage the video card and or motherboard;

    How to properly install a new video card;
    1 Old card still installed, go to the relevant support page ie nvidia or amd. Download the latest driver for your card. Do not use the driver on any support disk; it is almost always out of date
    2 Old card still installed, uninstall ALL software based on the old card ie driver, any monitoring software, any suite, etc. Do not reboot when prompted; just tell it later
    3 Shutdown and pull the pw plug from the back of the pw supply. Now press the ON button 2~3 times. This removes any residual charge from the pw supply capacitors
    4 Open the side panel and pull out the old card. Install the new card and make any necessary pw connections. Note there is a latch that must be depressed so that you can pull the old card. Do not just yank it out without depressing the release or latch
    5 Replace the side cover and pw cord. Now pw ON and install the driver you downloaded in step #1. Now reboot when prompted
    Done.

    I could go get another power supply. But at the end i think that that one would be at least enough to power up windows lol. I aint gaming yet. I have build over 20 pc's and i have never seen that problem. And i didnt uninstalled drivers since the card was nvidia algo.

    OK, if you have built over 20 systems, then you really should know how to install a video card. Just because it is the same card chipset ie nvidia, you still need to follow the procedure. Reason being when you install a nvidia driver, that driver supports a LOT of cards. From the 6xx series up to the 20xx series, the titan cards, etc, etc. They do not use the same files [that is why the nvidia driver file is so large now over 500meg] so that when you install say a 750ti, the files used are different than for something like a 2060.

    If you want to find out if this is a bad card OR a driver/windows problem, boot the system with a linux live usb. If it runs fine in linux, you know the card is ok and you have a driver problem. If it reboots or whatever in linux, then you know the card is defective.
    This will tell you in less than 15min where the problem lies.

    I already did it without any drivers installed, and with the 1080ti drivers installed. I think that it's a memory problem. Or temperature. But i have a broken screw on the back that i have to weld into a screwdriver to take it out... i already tried drilling it and it didnt even turned

    Honestly PCs are not something you breakout the cutting torch or arc welder to fix. A 1080ti is a pretty expensive card and really I would take this to a real shop to have fixed. Up to you however with your stated approach to fixing the problem, I think you are going to cause more damage. Again up to you.
