The Power Supply test just runs all the tests in parallel, maximizing
the power demand.

Supply test. ÂIt looks suspiciously like the "GPU:OCCT" test that I ran for
a few minutes yesterday just to see what it was. ÂIs this right? ÂI'm also
guessing that if I minimize that window, the test will not be valid as it's
not doing the graphics while minimized.

Yes, since this is a graphics test, it must run in the foreground. All
the other tests (CPU, RAM) run in the background.

The fact that your machine survived a few rounds of IntelBurnTest
would suggest to me that it's not a CPU/Mainboard/RAM Problem, which
makes debugging this a lot harder.

It might make sense to analyze the minidumps created.
