Windows 7: BSOD playing Assassins Creed 3, Borderlands 2

BSOD playing Assassins Creed 3, Borderlands 2

Hello everyone, first-time poster here so my apologies if I have not included any important information. I have been having this problem only very recently and I was wondering if any of you could give me any insight on it.

While playing graphics-heavy games like AC3 or Borderlands 2 I have received the following error messages I have appended to the bottom of this post. The game will "quit unexpectedly", and if I prompt the computer to close the program, I get the BSOD. If I just X out of the window telling me AC3 quit unexpectedly and end the process from the task manager, I don't receive the BSOD.

I am thinking it has something to do with my CPU running too hot (I caught it at around 70-85 degrees shortly after a game crash).

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

PS - I have also included an attached file with my system diagnostics.

Hello manyhighfives, Welcome to SF

First off if your OCing in anyway stop, return everything to stock settings for the purposes of testing

If you havent already, fill in your system specs so we know what we are dealing with
System Info - See Your System Specs

Make sure you have read the guide on asking for help with BSOD so you know what we need
http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html
And if necessary set your machine to create minidumps as per this guide (Option 2 step 2 is the easiest)
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Run some scans to check against virus or infection
http://support.kaspersky.com/5350
Windows Defender Offline

Run some basic hardware tests
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Disk Check (windows)
Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure (bootable)

There are no dump files in your post these would be handy to look at
