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 :(

600w is fine for that build. An OCZ 600w however, not so much. Replace it with an XFX, Corsair, Antec, Seasonic 650w.

What are your CPU and GPU temps under load?

The motherboard might also be to blame.

OCZ has *recently* started making quality PSUs. The modxstream series is pretty bad.

My temps are well, I use a phanteks ph-tc14pe which can handle loads of heat, kinda overkill. And my 7970 is stable after hours of testing and upping my clocks, I'm not turning on my rig until I buy a new PSU.

Get a 650w unit from the brands I listed above.
