Keep getting a BSOD for "ntoskrnl.exe"

I don't know what happened to my post I put here yesterday. It looks like it didn't take, so here it is again. In the Attached Zip file, I have the BSOD Dump & System File Collection and the System Health Report.

My Spec's are:

SYSTEM MANUFACTURER: Self Built
OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
CPU: Intel i7-920 (2.67 GHz)
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS-Rampage II Extreme MOBO
MEMORY: 12GB OCZ Reaper (6 x 2GB) DIMM DDR3 PC3-8500U DDR3 1066 (7-7-7-16 4-26-8-4)
GRAPHICS: EVGA Nvidia 470 GTX
SOUND CARD: Supreme FX X-fi-Audigy
MONITORS: 1x Samsung SyncMaster PX2370 LED (Main), 1x Samsung 226BW LCD (Secondary)
SCREEN RESOLUTION: LED-1920x1080, LCD-1680x1050
HARD DRIVES: 4 internal :
2x120 GB Corsair SSD in a RAID 0
1x 750 GB
1x 1 TB Internal
3 TB External
PSU: Coolermaster 750 watt PSU
CASE: Thermaltake-Spedo case
COOLING: 8 Cooling Fans on case and inside case- AIR COOLED!
MOUSE: Logitech G-9 Optical
KEYBOARD: Logitech G-15 and G-13
INTERNET SPEED: AT&T Uverse Internet
Ping: 30 ms
Download: 11.51 Mbps
Upload: 1.47 Mbps

I am inserting my "Who Crashed" report here as well. But as far as the nvdldmkm.sys BSOD, I think it's fixed as I haven't had that one in a while. All I did was disable the High Def audio in my Display driver. But as far as this one is concerned, I don't know what is going on. I just installed 2 x 120 GB Corsair SSD drives in a RAID 0.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
