No, I shut everything down when I play to increase performance.

Do you have any program or setting that could give a boost?

It appears the problem is solved.

Axe0, thank you for your time and patience; I truly appreciate it.

Recap:

I received multiple BSoD's while playing World of Warcraft. This happened in no particular pattern, anywhere from immediately logging in to playing for a couple of hours. When my computer crashed it would not always give me a 116 code. In addition, sometimes my computer would restart other times I would have to restart it manually with the power button.

to top it off, my computer passed all stress test thrown at it making the event in more confusing.

Solution:

Yesterday I took out the PSU to check it with a multi-meter. When I did so, a motherboard screw fell out. After I checked the PSU, all voltage normal, I placed the screw back into place. I have not had a crash yet.

It seemed that between vigorous game play and a wobbly desk the screw came loose over time, causing a short in the motherboard.

That is also possible, even though it is a graphics issue it could also be something else.

Thank you for reporting your solution
