Windows 7: BSOD(Kernel Power error 41) playing Borderlands 2 and Smite

I looked to my cpu temp and if Asrock eXtreme Tuner is alright, my cpu never go past 60 degrees (C). I think this is a normal cpu tem while gaming but I dont know if this program is reliable.

If this can help....

I also went on the NVIDIA website and launched the driver search if it is up to date and it says that it is but the driver that is installed is 306.23...

Yeah the CPU temp is OK, But I'd uninstall Xtremetuner, it can cause BSODs. Do any overclocking manually...after you get a stable system.
Note on your PSU, you have spent a lot of money for premium parts and went cheap on the PSU. With its four 12V rails I suspect you're starving the GPU of power.

Alright I will uninstall it right now and I will see for an option to replace the power supply thanks a lot I'll keep you updated if BSODs come back

What do you recommend as a good power supply without spending too much money...
Thanks

That is the correct driver. If I told you a different number, I must have made a typo. I was looking at it on my system when I wrote it.

Ok so for the second time today, my computer restarted after playing around 35 minutes of Borderlands 2. These two times, no BSODs were shown... It really does like if there were no more current in my house but the computer reboots by itself. It seems that maybe the PSU is the cause I'll try some solution and come back if it works.

Thanks for you help

You may want to look at this. Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD we need the mini dumps I believe unless one of the BSOD people correct me.

EDIT: I believe the EVGA Specs state that you need a 450W PSU with 24A on the 12V rail. You have 4 rails with 20A each.

Well, not much more needs to be said. It just started spontaniously.

Anyway, I am back since...
