Exclamation i7 4770/GTX 770 restarts PC while gaming

Hey Guys,
I just built my new PC and everything was working fine until I tried to play some games...
When playing League of Legends, after about 8-10 minutes the pc restarts itself.
I started to recreate the crash but this time observing the gpu temperature with gpu-z, the last lines of the saved log before the crash are as follows:

Code:

Fan speed is around 54%, the temperature is around 60C, so overheating shouldn't be an issue.

My guess would be that either: 1. PSU or 2. Drivers

The PSU I am using was suggested by a friend, it's a be quiet L8 500W, now I thought that maybe 500W wouldn't be enough, but after some research it seems like a good 500W PSU should handle the card easily. But because I custom built my PC I fear that maybe I have to regulate usage manually through the BIOS? I am not sure, that's the only thing I could think of, which could cause such a problem.

I am using the 327.23, I know that in the past some drivers had issues with the 770, but I've no expierence as I was using AMD Radeons earlier.

My System:
Be Quiet! L8-500W
MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Motherboard
G Skill DDR3 16 GB
EVGA GTX 770
i7-4770
Samsung SSD 250 GB
WD 1 TB HDD
Noctua NH-U12P

I would be grateful if someone could help me!

When doing load testing, you should always include your CPU as well.

But I can pretty much already tell you, definitely PSU. Minimum recommended is 600w, and although that L8 is a decent unit, it probably isn't able to hold up. (Even though in theory it should).

Your GPU temps look good, so it's either going to be CPU temps or PSU.

Thanks for answering! I will get a 700W be quiet one as soon as possible.

Don't forget to double check those CPU temps. If you're running the stock cooler it's a 50/50 chance that could be it too.

It was the PSU, I just replaced it with a 650W Corsair one.

Thanks for your help!
