Kernel Power 41 on Win7 64bit

Hello,
thanks in advance for the help.
I'm having this pesky kernell errors for some time now. They happen randomly but more often when some video is being watched or a game played.
These are my system specs

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 (cooler Zalman CNPS9700 LED )
Asus P5E3 Deluxe (updated to last BIOS)
4 x 2GB DDR3 Team Elite @ 1333
Radeon HD 6850 (1GB)
PSU ezcool 1050 W
3 hdd (Maxtor Diamond 120GB , WD 500GB, WD 2TB)
Windows 7 Professional 64bit updated
All the drivers are up to date, I just did a clean new install of the OS just to be sure.

Hi panais,
thank you for your fast reply.
I downloaded and succesfully installed the intel driver.
I can't find soundmax driver on the site you gave me, so I downloaded it from the asus site (audio is integrated in my MOBO). There's an hotfix setup and a nohotfix setup.
About the gear software I don't know where to start, on the site I can't find drivers plus I think I never downloaded something like that. Any tips?
Thanks again.

UPDATE
I installed the usb webcam driver also...
I uninstalled the precedent soundmax driver then I rebooted the pc, when windows started it searched and installed automatically the driver for the hd audio. Should I stay with it?
New perfmon report attached.

Tip: Keep always everything updated,software,drivers and ofcurse windows using the windows update.

Some "old" hardware and software does not have newest versions compatibles for new os like win7.

Do any possible update.

Did you had\have again any bsod?

Well, no. I guess I give it not enough time to prompt.
I'll start some random movies watching which I have on HDD, tryin' to show it up earlier.
I'll keep updated with news.
If you want to give it a read there are two memory dump of my latest bsods (before the drivers update)

I've reached the conclusion the BSOD happens only while I'm overclocking, so that's a relief....Apparently randomly I get a bsod (sometimes I just don't see the bsod I lose video signal and have to hard reset). Getting the error with Driver Verifier running I mange to get minidumps of the crash. The reference of the error is always the same so I'll just attach one of them. I'll put inside the .rar also my BIOS settings.
Thank you for any help.
UPDATE: I'll run an overnight memtest to check my ram, I'll post results tomorrow.
