That's OK. I was just going by your post

There's loads of particle effects, but I don't believe it should be that big of an issue
particle effects that are not supposed to be there, are artifacts. So, I was just going by that. That was from post # 43 I believe. That was why I said artifacts. If you are not getting them, OK. If you are, it is a problem.

I do not get particle effects that are not intended to be in the game, so that isn't the issue.
Sorry, should have told you sooner!

No problem, just I misunderstood what you meant.

Well so I figured I'd just get a new PSU, case and other good stuff to improve my air-flow or get enough room for a water-cooled system or other hardware. This will take a good while, since I don't have a job, and I'm a student. I do get some money each month because of the stipend though so it won't be a problem, but it'll take a month to get a new PSU at least

The problem isn't solved, and I'd like to reply when it is, but I fear it will be a long time until I'll be able to post that reply, so do whatever you want with this thread! I'll find it when needed

That's no problem. Just post back here and I will be notified whenever you post. In the meantime, please monitor your GPU and CPU temps and let me know what they are, at idle, while doing whatever you do and while gaming. Any error messages, I would like to know the error and exact wording if possible. If you have any more BSODs, run the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and upload them here. Don't worry about the time issue. We are open 24/7 and I will always answer. It may just take a little while, but I will answer. If not just leave me a VM or PM.

ICit2lol, is very good and knows a lot about hardware and a lot of other stuff. He will be good help. I would suggest, to talk it over with us before actually buying new hardware. After all, that's what he and I deal with. We can offer some good advice.

I took some pictures like you asked for showing the temperatures.

While playing Diablo III :

While using the internet:

Temperature spike out of nowhere: (!)

As you can see on the min and max temps the idle temp is 30 and the weird spike is at 96. My PC did this earlier today too, and jumped to 97 degrees C.
I double checked if there were was any dust in the case clogging a GPU fan or something, but it was clean. Hard to tell, but I think it actually might be the game causing the spikes since I believe I've never gotten a spike like that when not playing it.
