Windows 7: BSOD error 0x116 when playing games, unable to find what is at fault

BSOD error 0x116 when playing games, unable to find what is at fault

Hi! I've been having crashes for a while now. It seems the BSOD's happen when the GPU load is high(i.e. when playing games), but sometimes my PC has crashed on desktop or when browsing on the internet.

I have searched around on the internet to try to find some solutions. I've tried uninstalling drivers and do a clean install. I have run the windows memory diagnostics tool, which found nothing. I have checked tempratures after crashes (in BIOS, with OpenHardwareMonitor and by touching the heatsinks), and tempratures where around 30-40C.

I have tried running with the standard VGA compatible drivers, still crashed. I have run a stress test with FurMark 3 times, which causes crashes instantly. I have tried running with my brothers (working) graphics card, still crashes.

There must be something in my PC that doesn't work, but I don't know how to determine what it is.
