Urgent!! :( I believe my rig's power supply is going out!

Specs:
2600K@4.7GHz
ASUS 7970 DC@ 1235MHz core and 6000MHz mem
AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
WD Caviar Blue 500GB
And the PSU I had for 1 and a half years which powered first a 570 then 670 now heavily OCed 7970:
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W PSU

Since 40 minutes ago my windows is getting a different BSoD everyboot and every time it does boot it still does. My PSU is the only thing that is exuasting hot air apron boot, all of my components have big heavy air cooled blocks. I was benching FireStrike 50 minutes ago and started to see my CPU physics score drop 20FPS also, which sucks and like I really want to get back to BF4 Beta which my machine ran really well.

Should I turn my rig back on? Or will I hear the loud bang(what happens when PSUs give up)

Thank you :)  I know all of my components are well, but like every single component is throwing BSoDs at me. I even downclocked everything. This sucks :(

Umm..your power supply isn't "good" also I am surprised it didn't give up sooner. When PSU's give up they either die (won't turn on) or the explode (start on fire) I wouldn't turn it on until you get it replaced.

Not only is there nothing wrong with that power supply it's actually quite good. It got Hardwaresecrets Golden ( highest ) Award.

Still something is obviously wrong. If you were running a heavily taxing benchmark and that caused the problems to start it could be the power supply or you could have damaged an overclocked component. It's not booting every time you try?

It's booting, I'm using my slow iPad to talk. It boots then freezes from 3-10aeconds on desktop with nothing running, no malware or anything. It fails to boot at the win8 load up sometimes now.

So you can't get in Windows? Those are pretty high clocks on both the CPU and GPU. You should restore everything to stock speeds and see if that fixes it. You may want to even clear CMOS on the motherboard.

Ok, I reset the clocks and that didn't work but I never hit the reset button on my mobo yet because I'm going to buy a corsair rm 650w PSU to replace my old one

I'm all done now :)  threw out the old PSU and now I wait for a newer generation one from Corsair called the rm series. I couldn't boot into windows, and when I did it just froze or instant BSoD. First it was just an instant BSoD then it started varying, even after I reset CMOS things were the same.... I can't risk my whole setup getting catched on fire or hit by a surge from the PSU and dying. And I also don't want to be startled by a LOUD bang while restarting my rig 38 times.

The problem was a BLCK OC on my mobo. I lowered it to 100.5
