Your GPU uses 106 watts idle, up to 400 maxed. your cpu uses 95watts. You have a 100 watts spare for your PSU for the rest of your system.. just a FYI

What temp does your CPU idle at, and what temp under load in Prime95?
i had the same issues, have you cleaned out your system latly? lots of dust can cause nasty overheating issues.
Also sounds like to me .............
can you turn your machine right back on after if crashes or is there a down period? same answer, if there is ANY down period to restarting your machine is a a bios/motherboard based shutdown to stop damage from overheating. if not, then its something else!
I have lost confidence in Memtest and related programs over the last decade. Sometimes it works, sometimes it lets problems slip by. I have seen memory cause problems and Memtest has passed it with flying colors. Bump your memory voltage up a tad (.1V or so), see if that makes a difference. Same for the CPU, tweek voltage a tad, see if symptoms change. If you have something borderline, often the extra voltage will cover it for a time to help your diag. I have an old HP in now with SDR (its that old) that has a bad stick that crashes it. Memtest once again found no faults, yet when I replace one of the sticks with another good one, symptoms disappear. Pull one stick of RAM, see if anything changes, swap the sticks, any changes?
I have run into 3 main causes for hardware crashes, bad RAM, bad motherboards, marginal power supplies.
