BSOD while gaming

Hi first time posting

Anyway I start getting BSODs a few days. Was playing Guild Wars 2 when it happened for the first time. It happened a 2nd time while playing Mark of the Ninja. Last time was today while playing Sleeping Dogs.

Couldn't see the error code. Didn't have any recent hardware upgrades. Would appreciate if someone could shed a light on this.

It might be a bit on the high side but the case is only air cooled and I don't use aftermarket coolers. That said, these temps are pretty average for my comp.

Those celsius is definitely too high, at least to me. And they would cause computer crashes.

If you are overclocking any hardware, STOP. Reset any changed values back to default.

If there's no overclocking done, get a cooler for your computer.

No OC at all. So high temps are the cause?

I'm sure they are. Is this a new computer? Is it under its warranty?

Ok will monitor temps and get a good cooler. Think I will get one more fan too.

Hey just want to post an update. Got myself a CM Hyper T4 and 1 more fan blowing from the bottom of the case. CPU temp is ard 40 degrees Celsius while idling and goes to 50+ while gaming. Graphic cards temp are also around this range. Currently my fans configuration is side, btm and front blowing air in while back and top is blowing air out. Any comments?

Temps are good and your fan arrangement give you a positive case pressure and that's good as well. Use it normally and see how it runs.
