haha that was good timing; I was about to reply.
I've had no issues for about 2-3 weeks, but yesterday and again today my system started crashing again, but neither BSOD left a dump file behind. The second time it crashed today I was playing SWTOR, with iTunes in the background and I was keeping an eye on Speedfan, GPU was around 77 degrees Celsius and the processor at around 65.

If your processor is getting above 62 C, it is not receiving adequate cooling and could be damaged. Make sure the heatsink and fan are the proper set for that processor, and also check that the thermal compound is properly applied.

allright, i won't be able to check for a couple of days, but i'll check as soon as I can. How do I tell if the thermal compound is properly applied? If I find out that it is, is it perhaps worth changing cases?

Allright so I was away longer than planned but not to worry.
I opened the computer up today and had a look around, the heat sink and CPU seemed to be installed correctly, so that wasn't an issue.

The thermal compound looked parched and cracked; so i cleaned it off and re-applied it, as per the Arctic Silver Instructions (which were indeed very helpful ).

I'll post back with any issues/results as they come and it could be just my imagination, but the computer seems to be making a lot less noise as well.
