Windows 7 - Bluescreen/reboot when playing DayZ

So, can someone please help me find out whats causing the bluescreen/reboot? It can happen after 2 min or even 1 hour of playing DayZ. Still no sign of bluescreen/reboot when playing Arma2.

This are the pc specs:

Intel® Core i7-2600K Processor
Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.4Ghz, 8MB, 95W, Boxed

ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z, Socket-1155
E-ATX, Z68, DDR3, 4xPCIe(2.0)x16, CFX&SLI, NF200,

Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 2000MHz 12GB
Kit w/3x 4GB XMS3 DHX, CL9-10-9-27, for Core i7, w

ASUS Xonar Essence STX
PCIe-x1, 124 dB SNR / Headphone Amp card for Audio

Gainward GeForce GTX 580 3072MB PhysX
PCI-Express 2.0,"Phantom", GDDR5, 2xDVI, HDMI, Dis

Got a brand new 850w cosair psu aswell, so its not lack of power at least.

Memory test done. And I've installed the newest Nvidia driver.

Cpu is water cooled, so no problems with the temp.

Edit: Totally forgot the .dmp file.

You don't have all the necessary files attached. Please run the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app from the below link and upload the .rar file.

DRIVERS
Update your NVIDIA video card drivers from the below link. Perform a clean install by choosing custom installation rather than typical.

SOFTWARE
You will need to remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver that was found in your dump called sptd.sys which is notorious for causing BSOD's.Use the below SPTD uninstaller to uninstall the driver...

...and then install the freeware, MagicDisk (MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM).

I see. Well thanks. After the DayZ update yesterday, and when i disabled Deamon Tools, I've not gotten any bluescreens... yet... Been playing for 2 hours now, so I'll post the .rar file if it happens again.

That's good to hear. Make sure sptd.sys and Daemon Tools are both uninstalled though to prevent any future crashes,

Bsod

I seem to be having a similar problem some back story I had a friend build this for me back in Feb. after getting both a MoBo and Ram DOA all was great for a few weeks then I had to get the mobo fixed for a BIOS issue, it was looping writing back up BIOS. Upon return I have had 1 BSOD whlie playing Diablo 3 but not since. I got 2 BSOD last night while playing Dayz and once today while just sitting with Six Launcher open. Also ran memtest86 last night with no errors. I would say I have average to above average knowledge of computers, Google has been a life saver. Thanks for the help

Make sure your Razer drivers are up to date as they are a know cause of BSODs.

Stress test your CPU using Intel Burn Test.
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

Test your video card using Furmark. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat or artifacts appear on the screen.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Test your hardware using Prime95. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat. Let it run for up to 2 hours or until errors have been found.

All Test Passed

Thanks for the reply.
Before you posted I had already run Memtest and Prime95 with no errors although memtest didn't want to stop had to pull the CD and power off. I also Played both Portal 2 and Diablo 3 full graphical specs for 1hr each with out problems. Also tried just ARMA 2 with out the DayZ mad and it too BSOD. As far as I can tell my Naga driver is up to date it updates automatically occasionally and i remember it updating last week.


Burn In Test results:
Standard- 390.5 seconds, Max temp. 62.2C
High- 1092.49 seconds, Max temp. 64.6C
Very High- 3064.38 seconds, Max temp. 65.9C

Furmak Test:
After a few minutes temp leveled at 77C so I continued for 7 ish minutes total and never went higher. I'm attaching a screen shot as I was wondering if the center is supposed to look that way (blocks) it is that way from the beginning also the other furry render scree lowers the temp 3-4 deg.

From here I noticed there are 2 newer BIOS for my board so I'm going to try flasj=hing newest non-beta and see if that helps as from what I've gathered a BCCode 101 can be a BIOS problem. I will re post after I flash new BIOS.

Forgot to mention but I bench marked 1080p and got a 1309 score 21fps 602000ms. not sure if that matters.
Thanks again for your time.

The Furmark screenshot looks alright.

Hardware
One of the stacks in your dumps referenced ntfs so:
Run a chkdsk on the system partition to check for bad sectors or system errors.
Disk Check

Drivers
The following drivers need to be updated:

Code:
hugoio64.sys Sat Apr 5 01:39:14 2008
gdrv.sys Fri Mar 13 14:22:29 2009
These drivers can be found by searching them in Google and then finding the associated software or driver. Finally, find the latest version of this driver or software and download and install it. Some of the drivers may also be found here (if the driver says 'Windows Update' simply make sure all Windows Updates are installed).

You should also update any other drivers you can think of including graphics, audio, chipset, SSD etc.

I realise I already asked you to do this but the sptd.sys driver is still present in your dumps.
