Windows 7: Freezing/BSOD Randomly, Different Error Codes

I don't see anything that jumps out and says it's wrong. All looks good in your snips.
I tried to find spec for you 660ti but there's several models of it. I found this spec sheet for one of them which says the minimum power required is 12V @ 24 Amps and you PSU is just making this. Maybe when the GPU calls for a bit more power is what is causing the BSODs. I'll ask another member to look in here too.

Thanks, I just find it odd that if the GPU is not getting enough power shouldn't it be crashing under loading and not crashing under idle/light use? That's the part that boggles my mind. If you think it is the PSU I can see if I can get another one that has a single rail which would provide more Amps to the graphics card.

Yes it is odd, but it wouldn't be the first time we've seen this happen. I have no explanation either. My thought (often wrong i might add) Is maybe after the volts and amps ramp up for a game demand it will drop too much to sustain it. This happens when we are trying to get a stable CPU overclock.

DeathPhage, I 've breifly read through this thread so may have missed something. I agree it could be the PSU, but could also be other things also. One thing I did notice is your CPU temps. I wouldn't think they should be so high during Furmark, as it only tests the GPU, not the CPU. Would I be wrong to believe you are running the stock Intel cooler? These Ivy Bridge CPU's get awful hot when put under stress. May I suggest for a few days, take the GPU out of the case, and run on omboard graphics for a few days. That should eliminate whether it is the card, and give us a good indication of the PSU. Also download and use Core Temp or Real temp to monitor your CPU temps.

These things sometimes take a lot of trial and error to figure out what is causing the problem. But, if you will stick with us , KookKat, Britton30 and I will work with you to try to figure this out.

Also, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to ask.

Yes, I am running the stock Intel cooler. Sure I'll take out the card right now and run if for a few days and see what happens.

Those stock Intel coolers serve best as a paperweight. I used one only until my Hyper 212EVO got here. The stock one sounded like a vacuum cleaner too.
Let us know how it goes and try to replace the cooler. The Hyper is around 25-30 dollars.

Alright I thought about getting a different cooler but wasn't sure if it was worth it so I'll look into that. It will take about 48 hrs to tell (that's usually the time frame it BSOD on me before)

It's almost a necessity with Ivy Bridge.

Okay just a quick question. If my computer does not freeze with my graphics card in then most likely the problem is my power supply not providing enough power. Therefore I should replace it? If so, is this a good power supply to replace it with or do you recommend another one?

If your computer does not freeze or BSOD, it means it is either the card, drivers or the PSU. As far as Psu's go, I always recommend Corsair, Seasonic or Antec. They cost a little more, but the PSU is the heart of your computer and can cause all kind of problems as well as take out all components in a worse case scenario. Don't try to save money on a PSU.
