I just built a new computer about 2 weeks ago, and everything seemed fine until recently. I started getting "Kernel-Power" errors, usually when I play Star Wars, the old republic, there is no BSoD instead what happens is that I am doing everything normally, and suddenly i get this streak of multicolored pixels across a black screen and the pc restarts.
My Computer specs are: 500w Corsair PSU. Sapphire Radeon 6850 i5-2500k OCZ 60gb SSD 16gb ripjaws DDR3 Asus P8Z68-V LE mobo.
I have the latest bios on my motherboard, Microsoft Security essentials returns clean, no minidump is created even though I have it on.
Also I'm running Prime95 on my pc right now and have been for the past hour, but I can't recreate the error that way.
Thanks for your time.

Are all of your drivers and Windows up to date? Also, are you overclocking anything?
I believe that they are up to date, as I just installed the drivers a few weeks ago, and no, there is no overclocking happening at the moment.
