Okay, looking at this, I am now very interested in your GPU. If you don't have GPU-Z, download it and run. Post back screenshots for that as well. Please give the exact make/model of your GPU as well.

Your GPU readings appear "off".

On the bottom right hand corner of the second snip, your GPU VRM draw shows 93amps. I'm no rocket scientist, but I'm pretty sure that's bad. You need a GPU specialist to chime in here.

I'm not a GPU Specialist by any means, but that value for the GPU VRM has to be wrong. His PSU does not put out anywhere near 93A. A Corsair HX1050 only puts out 87.5A on the +12V.

Unless the VRM is bad...

The other three readings from the VRM are normal.

Out of curiosity, you do have the GPU powered by a direct PCI-E plug from the PSU, correct? Not by a Molex adapter?

i have the GPU plugged in directly from the PSU using 2x 8-pin PCI-E connections. one says PCI-E and the other says P3 thats attached to the PCI-E cable
