I had a topic a while ago, and I was getting Kernel Power 41 errors. It was mainly after upgrading, and I have changed everything besides the mobo and CPU, but I wasn't having errors before upgrading my GPU. I guess it comes down to my EVGA 1070 FTW being the problem somehow. So I got to talk to a local tech guy, and told him everything. One last suggestion he made before assuming the GPU was bad, was if I was only running a single power cord to my GPU, that it could be the problem.

 

I did only run one cable to begin with. I just assumed that the Corsair I bought having two ends on one cable would work. But I put in another cord. Hoping that fixes my problem. Its just that my shutdowns are so sporadic that I don't know how I can really confirm this fix besides waiting months and not having another. I had went atleast 2 months without an error before it started again recently and stress tests never once caused the error, only normal gaming use.

 

Anyone confirm that this could cause a 41 shutdown?

Well, it comes and goes. When I first upgraded it would do it within 30 minutes or so. That could have been a driver issue or something, it slowed down. It would happen during gaming or something, but not constantly. Weird thing is, I went on vacation and didn't do anything, all of a sudden it ran fine. I was able to play games no problem, hours on end. It went away for a couple months. Now, in the last month or so, it has started happening again sporadically. It would sometimes randomly crash while idle, or would happen pretty quickly after starting up a game. The last couple days it has happened every time I try to play a game. Half hour in or so, it would BSOD.

 

Sorry I didn't make that very clear. My original post is below.

Well if you know how to work a bios id say put the system in to slow/safe mode if you know what i mean and drop speed on ram and cpu by like 25% as well as loosen timings and see if that douse something, then go play the game that likes crashing and see what happens, report back after 2 hours of gaming with what happened.

 

Other thing i might do if the topic was really getting on my nerves and no fix was found is setup the system in win7 with a very safe setup of the install, no patches or anything just sp1 and min trusted drivers, all most nothing 3rd party app wise installed, just a handful of games that liked to crash and see if that douse anything.

 

Do you know how to work a bios ?

 

Btw whats max loaded heat on both GUP and CPU after 15 min burn in ?
