It was working fine for 2 days with the new PSU but started BSOD again when i played games my spec is:

Nvidia GTX 1070 (before i had a 750 ti and before that i had intergrated graphics)
2 HDD (added one, one is still there from PC being built)
Asrock H97M Pro4 (Hasnt been replaced)
EVGA 750W Gold PSU (Been replaced twice)

try making a bootable USB using memtest86 - check 1 stick at a time, and errors are too many as perfect score is 0. Remove/replace any sticks that get errors

Are you on win 10?

event 41 is a reaction, not a cause. Its created by windows on a restart that wasn't expected. It says just as much in the descriptions above - The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Can you follow option one here
and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD

that creates a file in c windows/minidump
copy that file to documents
upload the copy from documents to a cloud server and share the link here and

someone with right software to read them will decode the files and help us fix it :)
