Premiere Pro Exporting & Rendering BSOD(Blue Screen) & Freezes


Mar 16, 2016
Hi, I'm new to the forums, this is my first time needing to consult the masters on this website, because I cannot find the reason why my PC is Freezing or giving me a BSOD or the smiley in this case.

This only happens while I'm Rendering or Exporting for long periods of time on Premiere Pro CC 2015, I have CUDA on by default and the CPU temps don't go over 80C, I live on Puerto Rico which is a Tropical Island with Rain Forest like Humidity, but where I'm currently staying is much drier than anywhere else here so the ambient temperature is around 85-90F right now its 11:07pm and its around 77F, I have a temp gun and I checked all areas on my PC and they seem normal, I also cleaned the PC which wasn't dusty at all, because I clean mine every 2 months at least and I keep a Push Pull x4 fan configuration on top with a H100i Radiator, 2 140mm fans at the front and 1 same size on the back, on a Corsair 760T case, there is plenty of airflow and cable management is all nice and tidy in the back, speaking of cable management I use to have a Corsair 860i PSU but it died on me due to a short circuit inside an old multi-plug, since I was not using a USP, so I had to put in my older Corsair TX650, and I think thats where my problem lies, I recently moved and I do not have a USP here, I'm thinking it might be simply that MY PSU is not powerful enough?

The RAM on the spec info is wrong, its actually 1866 RAM but the BIOS set the RAM speed to 1333 for some reason and I forgot to change it back so this will have to do for now.

Here are my specs:
