Help! Random reboots while playing Dead Island! D:

The first time was a BSOD error so I turned down my overclocked settings but the ones following it don't have a BSOD. The screen just goes black then reboots. I tried re-installing the gfx drivers and nothing changed. I know my system isn't overheating because I have a liquid cooling system along with four high performance 120mm fans. I thought it could be the bios needs updating since I had that same problem with Portal 2 but it didn't help either. I just don't know what to do! ;n;

System config:
GA-970A-D3
AMD FX-6100 @ 3.8GHz
(4x2GB) Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
MSI Radeon HD 6670 1GB
Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit

how old and what the size of your power supply. (on the gpu are you using msi afterburner to turn the fan to max when you game???)

All the equipment is a little over a year old now and the psu is about 600w. No, I have the gpu fan at 65%, which keeps it at 33C the ambient temp is about 32C and the cpu temp is 26C but goes as high as 31~32 when under load.

run memtest to rule out bad memory. see if someone has a tests video card you can try to rule out the gpu. if the system blanks out with another gpu look into a bad power supply.

Honestly, I'm not sure what happened cause the error seemed to have corrected itself. :/  Windows did one of those 'quiet' updates where it updates your computer and when you find out that something happened, you get that little popup at the bottom that says you have 10 to restart your computer. After that, I tried dead island again and played it for two or so hours and nothing bad happened. I'm not sure what the update did but whatever it was, seems fixed now. Windows is weird :s
