Ever since I have upgraded to Windows 10 I have been getting this Kernel Event 41 issue where my computer abruptly shuts down, no BSOD. As far as I know, this issue only occurs during high loads in CPU/ GPU demanding games.

This issue occurs in the following games:

- Star Citizen
- Planetside 2
- ArmA 3

My temperatures are stable during gaming and never goes above 62 Degrees. Therefore can someone here please identify what is the cause of the problem and what can I do to permanently stop this incredibly frustrating issue from occurring again.
