I can't pin point the problem.. it's driving me mad. My computer keeps blue screening when I run games, but it's not all games. I can run Guild Wars 2 on the max settings but I can't run a cell shaded game like Mabinogi on medium settings. Borderlands 2 crashes my computer literally the second I double click it and press PLAY on Steam. Please, help, I'm losing my mind in anger.

One thing, my PSU's fan died but I got an external fan to blow air into it from the back, since then I've been able to play all the games that would've otherwise overheated my computer and shut it down, so it's not that. This is a new problem. I've cleaned the holy hell out of it with Advance System Care Ultimate 7, SuperAntiSpyware, IOBit Uninstaller, I've done it all. Changed power settings, made sure my graphics card wasn't overheating/overclocking..

You do realize that if there are components still overheating in the powersupply and that temperature is a significant cause of power supply component failure and even cause incorrect voltages to be outputted; its not just as simple as preventing it from completely overheating and shutting off. The damage to the power supply could already be done, there could also be damage to other components. You should also make sure you have a quality power supply of sufficient wattage. Also, if you have fan blowing into the back of the computer then you are reversing the airflow; the power supply fan generally blows out and any case fans and some video card cooling systems generally also do a front to back airflow.
It may be too late, but a replacement power supply is going to be a lot easier to fit than a new motherboard and power supply.

Beyond the obvious (and already stated) problems with the hardware setup you have, running any registry "cleaner" or "optimizer" can wreck havoc on a computer.

I've worked on computers where they have become un-bootable after running this type of software.

This is not just my opinion, but the consensus of the "staff" here on TSG as found in our Library. In the future, I recommend not running these types of programs. It may or may not be related to your issue.
