Edit: The USB power save settings was Enabled so I disabled it.
I got a USB hub which the headset and stuff are connected to, maybe it's a part of the problem?

as I said power management issue is the only other thing did you follow these steps?
To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.

The USB hub is a Hiyatek 7port and quite recently purchased.

even if it's new, selective suspend has fixed a lot of usb problems around here. it just doesn't seem to work right.
The device will behave exactly the same. It just won't randomly lose power whenever windows decides it's time.

No Blue Screens for a while now, but there is still something wrong and i can't find what it is. Games wont run for more than about 15 minutes before crashing.
I tried my old graphics card but it didn't make any difference.
I checked DirectX diagnostics, nothing wrong there either.
I've checked CPUID hardware monitor and saw the graphics card got quite hot so I opened up the Chassi to cool it down, still games crashes on about 86 degrees celcius and about 70-80% fanspeed.

Is there something else I should try regarding the graphics card or anything else that i haven't tried yet?

My card rarely breaks 70c

Yours seems to be getting a bit warm. ...not warm enough to damage it but warmer than I would expect.


ooooh, you have a 8800gtx, nevermind that's the hottest running card ever made, I used to have two of them in this machine.
I was actually able to cool them down significantly by taking the heatsink off and removing that horrible thermal goo they use and replacing it with proper thermal paste. Lowered the card temps nearly 15c

Do you think that would help?
I don't know how to do that but maybe there is a guide somewhere?

Not a ton of info but there's a couple of images and labeled things that may help you.
How do I remove 8800GTX heatsink? - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
