BSOD while playing any game, ntoskrnl.exe, very frequent

Hello everyone,

I've always had this problem but it is especially bad now. Recently, when playing any game, usually either Fallout: New Vegas or Assassin's Creed II, I get a BSOD within anywhere between 5 minutes or 45 minutes. The BSOD will come up with varying messages, such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, or DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER. I have also, on rare occasions, received several others. For a better idea of the different errors I've been getting, see this screenshot, it is a list of BSODs I've encountered over the past month or two. LINK

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (retail) Installation about 4 months old
Mobo: GA-870A-UD3
GPU: MSI GTX560ti Twin Frozr OC edition
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4ghz OC'd to 3.65ghz
PSU: Corsair TX-750 V2
RAM: Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ

The system was rebuilt only a few months ago. The only aging thing in it at the moment is the DVD drive.

I recently removed one stick of RAM and I went about 2 hours without a BSOD. Will try playing more and seeing if it lasts as long again.

Things I have done to try and fix:
-Updated graphics drivers
-Updated mobo drivers, SATA and USB3
-Slightly increased voltage on RAM (1.6v as opposed to 1.5)
-Memtest, both RAM chips at once (will test again with each stick and slot individually when I have time)

Dump files attached. Thankyou if you take the time to assist.

Played for about an hour, no BSOD, left the game running and went to the shops. Come back 20 mins later and it's frozen. An improvement over a BSOD, I would say, but I'll keep playing and see what happens.

Well I played about 4 hours of AC2, and it hasn't BSOD'd yet, so I'd definitely give it a go.
