Windows 7: BSOD and constant crashes with Photoshop after adding more RAM

So I ran Memtest and Furmark. Both didn't show any errors or crashes.

PSU calculator gave me this:
Minimum PSU Wattage: 424 W
Recommended PSU Wattage: *474 W
Mine is 550W.

Speccy shows that my motherboard is a bit hot from time to time (I'll attach the screenshots).

But I got another BSOD today and in Even Viewer found this:
Event18, WHEA-Logger
A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Translation Lookaside Buffer Error
Processor ID: 3

The amount of events with the same source is pretty much the same as the amount of recent crashes (well I can only rely on my memory here, but it seems accurate).
And I haven't ran the CPU stress test yet, because I'm using this computer for work and I'm afraid it will just stop working permanently.

Dismantle the computer, totally. Clean everything inside it. Clean the air vents, fan grills ... so that it can blow the hot air easily. While re-seating, apply thermal paste to the CPU. .



Also plan to apply a bigger cooler .... leave one side of the case open till you can buy one.

I kept the side open since the first day of BSODs started to occur. And I usually clean the dust inside the case every 2-3 months. Maybe this summer is just to hot...

Any suggestions on a cooler though?

Do the cleaning and re-apply thermal compound once again now.

Cooler master makes the best coolers there.

Thank you. On it now.
So what are the normal temperatures for CPU, motherboard and RAM should be after all the cleaning procedures?

It should be a few degrees more than your home temperature.

Oh, than I got a serious issue here... So it all began when I got new RAM sticks, do I need a cooler unit for RAM as well now?

I think so ... as the temperature of the motherboard is tending to be high. It should be taken into control. It would be the best if you see if the thermal paste can reduce it down a bit.

So I got a new cooler, installed it (reapplied thermo paste etc.). The temperatures were still high. I re-installed again. Nothing changed: the CPU is still around 40 and MoBo is at 50C according to Speccy. The computer crashes still.
Am I doing something wrong ?
