Thank you for the response Dark.

I'm not overclocking.

Opening nvmonitor from the nvidia control panel it says "nforce" (I assume my motherboard) is at 57 c and my video card at 62 c (no games running).

I think my PSU is an 850w, when I purchased it I was sure to choose a decent brand. However, I can't remember the name or find the box around, and as the sticker isn't on the back/top/side (viewable parts). It might be on the bottom, but I'd have to take it out to check, and I'd rather not bother unless the brand is important info.

Edit: I ran memtest and it said that no problems were detected.
