Windows 7: BSOD While idle or gaming

Update-After some updates to windows and some drivers to my motherboard, the blue-screens now only seem to occur while attempting to run games or watch you-tube videos.
These are the updated dump files, they have gone from 4 to around 13 now.

They are once again happening while idle as well. Seemed to start after windows updated, but that might be a coincidence. The 3 BSOD seem to only be DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. I'm hesitant to try anything because I really do not know what the problem is. This is a fresh install of windows 7 on a new HDD.

-I'm at my wits end here and I don't think the guy who was taking the time to help me is here anymore

Ran memtest and found errors, but it froze corrupted my bios. Repaired my bios and switched out the RAM for the one I was told was not compatible with my CPU. Its working for now, but I'm going to order replacements soon.

As always, here's my updated mini-dumps and system info. I haven't posted for a few days because i was having some trouble repairing my bios.

Since then the system seems more stable, but when ever I attempt to play a game, after a short amount of time (anywhere from 1-20 min) the game either freezes, crashes to desktop, or, most frequently, bluescreen.

It still is probably the RAM, but, while I wait for replacements to arrive, I was wondering if any one could give me some more insight on other possible problems and solutions. Heres the latest minidumps and system info.

Ran Prime95 again and immediately crashed on the blend test. I ran it twice and bluescreened both times instantly. Then ran the FTT test and that ran for 30-40 minutes and then crashed. It crashed when I had left the room for a second so I did not see it happen.

I'm guessing that instantly failing the blend means the RAM is bad, but what other diagnosis can i get from the results?

Should add that I was running Speedfan to monitor temps and the core and CPU temps never got too hot.

It seems I was completely wrong or I am very unlucky with RAM. I installed the new RAM and I still get immediate BSOD's with running the prime95 Blend test. I have not tested them with memtest yet. Probably going to do that tonight just to be sure. I'm a little hesitant since the last time I used it, my bios got corrupted.

I'm begging to think my CPU was slightly damaged from all the time it had its sub-par cooling unit, but would really like advice from someone much more knowledgeable than me before I spend the money to replace it.

Heres the latest System info. If you look at it, you'll see that all the latest bluescreens are KMODE or DRIVER IRQL.

Forgot to add that I ran Seatools for my new HDD and passed all tests.

Ran memtest for over ten hours for 5 passes and no errors. Probably going to run it again tonight. Is running it twice for 5 runs equal to running it one time for 10?

Anyway, going to start putting the most current dump files on the first post as well as the latest.

Still have no idea how to fix this. Uninstalled and reinstalled my video drivers, but couldn't completely get rid of the first install since driver sweeper no longer seems to be available. Don't even know why I'm posting here anymore.
