Windows 7: Repeated crashes while playing any game with no BSOD

Update:

Spent the better part of last night looking for more information about issues related to any of my hardware. Eventually I stubled on a similar issue with my Mobo and a different set of G.Skill ram. They enabled XMP in BIOS and it fixed the issue. Figured I would give it a shot and it seems to have fixed the issue. Ran flawlessly for 2 hours last night before I went to sleep. I'll play again tonight and if it works for the whole time I will declare victory.

Congrats. Glad to see you are working. I am always encouraged when a user investigates and finds the answer for their particular problem. Good work.

Return of the random Restart

After everything the random restarts have returned with a vengeance. Usually it still happens when I am playing a game (BF3, GS:GO, GW2) but sometimes it happens while idling or while I am using Firefox. I have tried to resolve the issue myself but without success so here is everything I have done recently to fix the issue.

Reformat did not work.
Default BIOS settings did not work (no overclocking anyways)
Tweaked BIOS ram settings to XMP which made the issue happen less frequent. (went about a two weeks with no restarts)
I know that voltage readings from BIOS aren't very reliable but the 3.3v is running around 2.8-2.9v for the past couple of months. I tested the PSU with a multimeter and everything was OK.
I switched out my GTX570 for a spare 9800GT+ and did not get a restart but with how random they are I can't blame the video card definitively.

I am at a loss for ideas. Any help would be appreciated. If you need anymore info let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
