Hello, as title says im getting that error in the event viewer, (The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.), now it all started in november when i bought battlefield4, whole time got issues when the game was about to transit from one map to next one, the errors where colored screen, usualy grey and pc freezes, after updating drivers and apps the situation fixed little and got the freezes after couple of played maps or non, in the end it turn out if i close the Sound Blaster Recon3Di Control Panel the colored screens and freezes stoped after figuring that everytime before playing i closed the panel, the antivirus app and some other aps, but beside those freezes i started getting random bsods 116, 50, 3b, after i started closing the apps the game run better but bsods continued randomly, mainly when i was doing shut down on the pc, or closing bf4, this past week i payed again for wow wanted to see whats new (havent played for 2y), and if i alt tab again started getting colored screens and freezes, ive started checing stuff for some reason my gpu didnt inc the fan speed as the heat inc, on the ASUS GPU Tweak i had to tweak it manualy, so i got annoyed from to many errors and ive reinstaled windows 7, got SlimDrivers to update all drivers, instaled all latest drivers but for some reason all videos started flickering, my last gpu drivers were 337.88 and i had physX on the gpu, i remove those put the prev drivers 335.23 and still got the flickering but when ive set the physX to the gpu it fixed, after that ive started to check the games becouse everything happened while gaming, and now no bsods but im getting the colored screens and freezes and in event viewer it says Kernel-Power error, and again it happends in bf4 when switching from map to map and in this 2 days it always happends in between 1 to 2nd, and in wow if i alt tab many times. ive used prime95 for couple of hours its ok, ive used OCCT no errors, also memtest for 2 passes no errors, im getting annoyed by this becouse the pc its 2500euros.
The cpu is overclocked to 4.4, the temps on the cpu are 77-78c when using prime, the gpu temps goes max to 59c fan speed now inc properly. i dont have idea what can cause this, can anyone assist me tnx, one other thing my gpu isnt compatible with aero theme.

most of what ive read is psu issues, but mine psu is quality and i dont have a psu tester to check it. before formating the pc the game was fine i didnt even get cpu spikes ingame, now i have that. thing is its only happening while gaming and while gpu usage drops, on bf4 when map changing gpu usage drops to 0, and in wow when i alt tab gpu usage drops to 0, so that has something to do with the error and freezing.
