I was playing Splinter Cell Blacklist, I was about a hour or so into game play and then, hello blue screen of death, went into my computer manager to see what the critical error was, and like every other asus mobo I have had, good old Kernel Power 41 error. I checked all my drivers and even put on some new thermal paste on the heatsink. I ran a prime95 test about a hour later before the new thermal paste and some fan swapping. The test got hotter than I have ever seen them so far, Mobo got to 40c, vrm got to 55c cpu got to 51-54c and I could smell it getting hot.
Not sure what caused this BSOD issue this is my first finished build, here are the guts

Case
AzzA Hurrican 2000 Full tower

Mobo
Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2.0

Cpu
Amd FX 8320 8-core

Memory
Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb 1866 ddr3
I forgot to mention that the fans that where on the heatsink where Delta fans 120x25 mm I was thinking that maybe to much vibration from those fans might have caused a issue, not sure thought.
PSU
Cooler Master V850 Full modular

Heatsink
Cooler Master 212 Evo with 2x120 mm Cooler Master blade Master fans

GPU's
2x660 FTW signature 2 3gb SLI'd

So if anyone might have a idea to why this brand new build BSOD on me then please tell me what and how to keep it for happening again, Also those temps are from it running on stock settings, no overclock
