Getting critical error Kernel Power id 41 task 63


Dec 25, 2016
My computer has been randomly restarting and in the event viewer it is displaying a Kernel Power Error ID 41 task 63. I have been looking into it via various forums on the internet and I can't seem to remedy the problem. At first I figured it was a PSU issue but I replaced the PSU and am still getting the issue. I have updated all my drivers and my bios as well. This issue has been happening for a few month, and in that time I have moved into a new apartment so it can't be due to faulty sockets. At first it wasn't super noticeable, with the system crashing every couple weeks. Now the computer can't run more than a few hours without crashing.

Computer Specs:
CPU: Intel - Core i7-6700K 4 GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-Z170N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard
RAM: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
SSD: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
HDD: Seagate - Barracuda 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU: NVIDIA - GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB Founders Edition Video Card
PSU: Corsair - CXM 750 W

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
That looks like a motherboard issue.
Have you done any other troubleshooting besides changing the PSU?
Run the system with only one stick of RAM and see if the issue repeats. Then try the other stick.
Which case and CPU cooler do you have?
How are the system temps (CPU ,GPU & board) on idle and load?
Does it crash randomly even when there isn't a high load on the system?

I have not tried running one stick of ram then the other, I'll give that a go. The case is a Corsair Spec Alpha, and the CPU cooler is a Cooler Master - GeminII S524 Ver 2 65 CFM CPU Cooler. The system temps seem fine in idle and under load, and the it crashes completely randomly, under load, not under load, 15 minute after being turned on or 8 hours after being turned on.
