Fucked if we know, what do your event logs and/or minidumps say about it?

the only thing critical on my event log was that Kernel Power (event id 41, task category 63)

Interesting. Thats a power and temp related code. Do you overclock?

First thing would be to disable automatic restarts so you can catch the bluescreen codes before the thing reboots. Right click on computer, open properties, then advanced system settings (left pane) > advanced tab > settings (under start up and recovery) and uncheck automatically restart. Run a few passes of memtest86+ to make sure your RAM is solid. I'd also be installing open hardware monitor to keep an eye on temps and voltages, look for either spiking temps or sagging voltages, I believe that program logs minimum and maximum values so you can check after a reboot. Report findings.

No I don't over clock and thanks for the in depth reply. I'm pretty sure my RAM I'll check but so far it's been good. As for spiking volts and sagging temps I'm just going to use speccy if thats ok. So far there is nothing significant temperature wise. I forgot to mention that I recently installed the gpu and cpu yesterday and it has been working fine since today.... Is it possible that this is a one time thing that will go away over time? Like habituating or something?

If it logs parameters in such a way that they are available for review after a crash, I'll allow this.

>I forgot to mention that I recently installed the gpu and cpu.
This is important information to mention. New kit either throws down an early life failure within days or lasts for years. You may have a poor solder joint on the card that flexes open and crashes the system under thermal expansion, or a buggy CPU. Once you have established your volts, temps, and rams are solid, swap your old GPU back in, see if the problem goes, if not, throw in the new card and fall back to your old CPU (please don't tell me there's also a new mainboard in the mix as well). This should reveal if one of the new parts is dodgy and needs it's shit RMA'd.
