    No BSOD Critical Error: Kernel-Power Event ID 41 (63)

    I just recently built a computer in December and from the start the PSU made some clicking noises, but I didnt see it as a problem since at first there were no problems with my computer. It would restart after the first 5-10 minutes of playing league of legends. 20-30 minutes are playing Team Fortress 2. And less than an hour of playing Starcraft 2.

    I looked at my event log and it was a Critical Error: Kernel-Power. Event ID 41. Task Category 63.

    This occurred once in a blue moon when I first built my computer and for the last couple weeks it's occurring each time I'm in the middle of a game. I've gone through many blogs and tried a few of the fixes. I tried the mulitple audio device fix with no results. I've ran prime 95 for 12 hours with no problems. Memtest with no problems. and a couple of other stress tests with no problems. My CPU Idle is at a constant 35degrees centigrade and during games it goes up to 50-62 at the most. Here are my computer specs.

    Case: Thermaltake Overseer RX-I
    PSU: Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze
    Motherboard: MSI H77MA-G43
    CPU: Intel i5 3570k 3.4ghz
    RAM: 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance
    GPU: EVGA GTX 560Ti
    HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda
    and two optical drives: 1DVD Burner and 1 CD/DVD Player

    OS: Windows 8 Pro 64bit

    If there is any other information I need to give please let me know. This situation is really stressful.. Especially while Im preparing for a big tournament.

    Hi! I am running an older (but capable!) rig and stumbled across your experience via Google! About an hour ago I started experiencing the same crash while playing TF2. I don't really play other games but my event log is the same as yours. Bump for any answers!

    I have tried verifying and defragging the TF2 files w/o much luck. Next I plan to uninstall/reinstall TF2. Then I hope to try some of the fixes on blogs you've mentioned... BTW I am running Win 7.

    I am not sure though if the event listed is caused by me having to hard reboot the system.
