Hey, I had work and all that so sorry for the delay in my response, but I ran those 2 tests right, looked up the 'Tcase' temp for my processor which is supposed to be the max recommended temperature right, but shortly after running each test my CPU quickly jumps up above 60C so I keep stopping the tests in case it overheats or something, though the other components of my computer are running at good temperatures.

The tests themselves weren't run for very long so they didn't really find any errors or anything, what do you think I should do? I know I'll probably have to buy a liquid cooler for my CPU either way I suppose

Okay..
What setting are you games on while playing? Do you enhance them so that they play better or look better?
(sorry if I sound dumb, but I don't play games) You might want to see how they work without those settings.
Keep them in the lowest possible and see if you're getting BSoDs

Oh I usually set them all to max, and now that I think about it.... there was an older game I was playing, FEAR 2 on max which doesn't have nearly has good graphics as some of the newer games I have been playing, also on max... though it would still occasionally freeze up a bit while playing it, hmmmm

Well, maybe that could be the reasons to your BSoDs and your hardware should be okay.
But if you get BSoDs on lowest settings then I don't know where the problem is. LOL

Hey so I've been watching videos, movies, all that while on my SSD and it doesn't freeze or anything like my HDD does... I'm going to install some older games on my SSD too and see if they work, I know that with while in the OS on my SSD, when I run a game off of the HDD it definitely gives me a BSOD but maybe not if it's installed on the SSD, so I'm gonna install a newer game on the SSD and see if it works

There are some tests for HDD.

Run Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:
Disk Check

Hard drive test both short and long with:
SeaTools for Windows

Also the DOS version of:
