Not sure what you want me to take a screenshot of, and why i'd need that program for it.
I don't have v-sync on, and atm. i have team fortress 2, league of legends, world of tanks & navy field 2.

Edit: I got it.

Idle:

Sorry if I wasn't clear enough in my previous post.
I want to rule-out heat related issues, so I asked you to post a screenshot of Speccy inorder
to know more about the current state of the machine.

Please post a picture while idle and a picture during a game shutter.

You were clear enough, just didn't know what the program was for, when i spend 30 sec to actually read the page i knew what you were after.

Do mind testing the RAM?

As mentioned in the first post, i have tried memtest, but only for an hour with no errors. Planning on running a longer sessions when i find the time.

That is up to you.

Download CPUID - HWMonitor, and post a screenshot, in order to verify the voltages being supplied.
How old is the power-supply?
Do you have a spare one you can test with?

Download CPU-Z and put a load on the system using Prime95 and post a screenshot.
  • Put a load just for a couple of minutes and don't go through the entire testing process for now.
This will tell us if the CPU is reaching it's boost clock speed.

Today i ran memtest for a bit over 5 hours with no errors. In bios the performance setting for memory is "extreme"
So, more or less hardware fault is ruled out. Maybe i should try some even older drivers?

How many passes did it complete?
Try setting the RAM back to stock.

Check for dust accumulation particularly in and around the slots.
What is your BIOS revision?
