Well, it depends on how loud your fans are and how sensitive to sound you are. I believe your CPU TJmax is about where you have it at 100%, or close. It's a lot easier to keep temps from getting that high than it is to cool it off after it has gotten that high. At any rate, I'm sure that is better than the stock setting. Just watch your CPU temps, and if that setting does not keep it down considerably, raise your fan curve until it does. If it takes raising it too much, I would consider, changing thermal paste and even brand of fan you are using. There are some fans that are very good and pretty quiet. But, are pretty expensive for a fan. So, just play it by ear and get a good monitoring program that works well for you. I just would like to keep the temps down for a while to rule out high CPU temps as the cause of your BSODs. Also, you should never use more than 1 CPU temp monitoring program at a time. More than 1 program reading the same sensor, can give inaccurate results.

After a week of testing, I've gotten 2 BSoDs regarding same driver, and one complete shutdown (?).

I got the BSoDs in the same pattern as earlier, but the complete shutdown was... something different.
I was casually playing Trackmania 2, when suddendly, my whole computer just closed itself. With no BSoD, error message etc. It was just like someone had turned the power off from my PSU.

So I have a feeling that something is wrong with my PSU...

That sounds like it. But, it would be unusual for Seasonic. They are a top of the line PSU manufacturer. I especially like the X series and the newer Platinum series. My next one will probably be a Seasonic, and I'm pretty picky about hardware. But, those symptoms sound like the PSU. If you have someone you could convince to loan you a good working PSU and try that, it would be the real test. I always suggest that, and I do that myself before buying or RMAing something. A dump file won't tell us if it was a PSU, but if you'll upload the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions I'll look and see if there s anything there.

How are your temps? Temps will do that too sometimes.

Temps are OK.
My CPU has not been alerting about over 65șc temperatures, and my GPU is at 62-70șc also.

OK, that should be good. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't temps causing it.

Okey, added my files on the previous message afterwards.
Also, could it possibly be my Motherboard? :/ Because it seems to be a hardware problem on something mainly important

Yes, and I'll be happy to take you through the process of checking those things we can test, Some, we can't, like the motherboard or PSU really. Just understand that testing hardware can be very time consuming. Also, if you have anything overclocked, please set it back to default levels.

I noticed that my CPU is overclocked for some reason to 4.3 GHz instead of being at 4.0 GHz. Also my GPU is stock oc'd, so it shouldn't be a problem? And I'm not sure how to reset the OC on my CPU.

Look at your ram timings, (unless you already know what they are) Look at your sata controller to see what mode it is set to (IDE AHCI or Raid) set optimized defaults, then set your ram if it has changed, set the sata controller to what it is now, set the boot order, save and exit,
