Hey, I was in the middle of playing a game (Arma 2) on my newly built gaming PC, when randomly my computer reboots. It was not overheating as when i restarted all temperatures were below 40c. I am not sure what this could be. I have ran more graphics intensive games on my pc before (such as SC2), just some random information. I am not overclocking by the way.
*Running Windows 7 Professional
Here is my build -> http://pcpartpicker.com/p/bgQI

And here is the error message from event viewer

I would recommend checking your RAM with MemTest 86+ to rule out memory issues.
