Hey firstly my PC specs

Intel® Core™ i5-760 Processor (8M Cache, 2.80 GHz)
Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Rev.2
Intel® Desktop Board DP55WG
4GB DDR3 ram 2x2gb kingston sticks
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 "Vapor-X" 1gb
Western Digital SATA II Caviar Black 500gb
LC Power LC600H-12 600W
There are 2x80mm and 1x 120m Fans. Classic fans without leds
OS: Windows 7 64 bit

Well my i didn't OC anything. PC was working nice for nearly a year, only thing i had to do was replacement of intel stock cooler with aftermarket cooler to steady core temps.

But about month ago my problem started... Kernel Power Error ID 41 started. I tryed these things to fix it:
-Reinstaled win7 several times and formated disks
-I cleaned case
-Reconnected all connectors
-Disabled audio drivers
-Reinstaled graphic drivers
-Disconnected all USB deviced and fans (expect keyboard and mouse)
-Changed tasks in Task Scheduler
-I guess all
-Temps are never over 65deggres (using core temp)
-When i disabled speedstep in bios and exited bios with saving changes my PC crashed

When my PC gets crash if i don't turn it off for few mins it will crash again after ''Windows loading screen'' or at ''Wellcome message''.
Most of cases i get this crash while playing games. In strong games like battlefield or black ops i get this error in few mins of playing otherwise after 20 mins or so. Sometimes i got crash when i tryed to ''Exit'' from game.
When i do torcher test with prime95 for most times it works without crash. But when i click ''Stop'' on taskbar my PC crashes
Well idk if this has something to do with kelner but i see 2800 ''Administrative events'' in event log mostly ''Warning'' and ''Error''.

Well before i take my PC to shop where i bought it i would like to know where the problem is.

Looking forward for your answers :)

A 600W PSU might not be enough for that system, especially if its a low efficency unit.
a b ) Power supply

Sounds like a power supply issue, if you only recently have been getting those problems.

Do you have a spare PSU you can try out?

BTW i've never heard of the brand "LC Power" - it sounds cheap and dirty.

Well i calculated that i need about 450W of power. Since PC has been working for like a year without problem i think that was enought!

I am sure that you heard about LC Power. Its kinda cheap brand but effective but i realised many people have problems with it. I will try to find PSU tommorow.

I tryed to run it with different PSU and i had no crashes at all :)
