Do you think this is because of high temperatures? I never see the temps higher than 57-ish

Temps in the mid 50C is not a problem.

I asked because of joeandmarg0's suggestion. If I'm not wrong the method he described implies heating issues.

Could you go into your bios and list these in your next post.

+12V ?
+5V ?
+3.3V ?

Also another picture of HWMonitor showing those voltages.

I'm not understanding a fan under the power supply.

Could you post a picture of the case with the power mounted or a website showing the case you are using.

The power supply should mount with it's own intake and exhaust ports. No other fans should be needed for the power supply other than what it came with. If their is anything blocking the intake or exhaust air flow for the power supply it will over heat.

I tried to get the information you asked for. Do you still have any idea what might be the problem?

I'm not sure about the BSOD as I don't see one. That's why I included the zip file as per the instructions in the original post, because I wanted someone to take a look at that.

Yes it could be only the card is having problems and it is often overlooked.The capacitors are the weak link in all electronics and their failure is not always heat related,which is why a quick check of the card is a good idea.At the worst it might not prove anything,at best it can pinpoint a fault,all it takes is time.
