Hello everyone. 

I'm running Windows 10 x64. I don't know why this happens, but whenever I try to run a game like Skyrim even in LOW settings, my GPU goes from 37ºC - 42ºC in idle to 85+ºC.
This didn't happen before tho, it was this summer it started to shutdown due to high temps. No BSOD, just 41 Kernel Power event.

I thought my GPU was broken, so I swapped it (Radeon HD 7770) for a GTX 650 Ti Boost. Only the same exact thing is happening. I've just done a Windows clean installation, but no luck (I haven't tried to push it to the point of a shutdown after the Windows clean installation tho).

So now that I've tried everything that I could, is there someone here who can explain what's going on? Maybe PSU related? Motherboard? CPU Bottleneck?

I'll add some IMGUR with HWMonitor readings. Thank you very much in advance.

I'd suggest posting over in the Internal Hardware forums.

This sounds like a problem with your entire cooling solution - so I'd wonder about ducting colder outside air directly into your GPU cooler - but that's way beyond my abilities.

Here's a link to the Internal Hardware forums:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/ 


My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
