Everytime I play computer games my computer freezes up and when I restart and look in the event viewer, it shows critical error Kernel Power 41. When the computer freezes, i can still talk to people in teamspeak, but i can not ctrl+alt+del or alt+tab. The computer is completely locked up and theres nothing I can do but manually restart. Ive done hours and hours of research online and tried all of the solutions that some people have found, such as disabling the extra or all sound devices, doing a clean restart or shutdown, and updating all drivers. Ive done memory checks, clean system restores and everything checks out fine. I was wondering if theres anyway this problem could be related to my PSU. I have always been worried that my PSU hasnt been big enough as ive upgraded my PC along the year. If anyone has any solutions or knows if this could be a power supply related issue, any help is appreciated. I dont want to take one of the graphics cards out unless I have to because i have a cooler over them and with my cabling its a pain in the you know what. I wantd to check with you guys first to see if its worth doing.

My Specs:

AMD Phenom 1090T @stock settings
ASUS Formula Crosshair IV Motherboard
2x ATI Radeon 5870s
16GB Gskills Ripjaws 1333Mhz RAM
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB MI SSD
1.5TB Western Digital Black 7200RPM Hard Drive

I have 5 case fans, a memory cooler, corsair h60 liquid cooler, 4 cathode lights, and a cd drive also running. If you need anymore information just ask. Thank you so much!

You point to the PSU as the problem yourself, yet there is no mention of its make and model anywhere in all of what you write?

For us to give any useful advice, it would help if you listed its make and model or even better a link to it.
