tmpn1, I believe, is your northbridge chip. That is known to run hot.

Could possibly be a GFX problem. Try downloading FurMark. See if you get any pixels while running it. Watch your temps, too.

Could be your RAM, too.

It looks like the Power Supply is crap.

Rocketfish sounds like an off-brand... probably the reason.

The Rocketfish 700 is a piece of crap. Here's a link to a Rocketfish RF-700WPS 700 watt review from HardOCP.

To be honest you don't need a 700 or a 800 watt power supply. You just need a well made, reliable power supply from a company with excellent customer service if you do have a problem.

I think this 650 watt power supply is all you need, $79.99 after a rebate.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

If you just want to go overboard then this 750 watt power supply is $99.99 after a rebate.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
