i've got:
AMD FX-8350 Prozessor, Boxed, Sockel AM3+

Seagate Barracuda 7200 500GB SATA 6GB's

Sharkoon Vaya

gskill ares 2*8gb ram 9-9-9

my problem is (as in title) that while playing games my computer (freezes, mostly) reboots (somethimes with red screen).
i found lots of people saying it is because off voltages or psu, so hereby i ask for help... how does this look?

i got everything in bios to standard.

when i used cpuid hardwaremonitor my vcore min is 0.936V and max is 1.392V...
and that V moves a lot.

Have not heard of that power supply, I would replace that with a better brand, corsair and antec seem to be the recommended units around here. But my guess is your power supply is getting pushed too close to the edge and when you are gaming you are asking for more juice than it can deliver.

^ true

and for 6670 ddr3, what game you are playing? overheated gpu can be the cause

Usually around 90 to 100 degrees celcius is safe. Could try to put a slot cooler fan under the card to see if you can help move air away from your card.

In that case I would say you definitely need to replace your power supply.
