Windows 7: ntkrnlmp.exe bsod / spontaneous rebooting under cpu stress

ntkrnlmp.exe bsod / spontaneous rebooting under cpu stress

Lately my computer has been spontaneously rebooting during gaming or watching video streams. If I open multiple twitch.tv streams, it will reboot itself within 5 minutes without fail. It happens during games as well but isn't consistent; I've managed to play Planetside 2 for 4+ hours without rebooting. The vast majority of the time it has rebooted without giving me a bluescreen, but twice I have gotten them. I do not know if the boots and bsods are caused by the same thing, but they happened under similar cpu-intense conditions. I've thoroughly cleaned the PC and monitored my temps with speedfan and heat doesn't seem to be an issue; my CPU stays under 40c, GPU peaks at 65c or so, and everything else stays in the 30's.

Here are the two crashdumps from the times I got bluescreens:

the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Arguments:

Arg2: fffff80002fddb9e, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Parameter 0 of the exception

This PC is a few years old and was built on a budget, I wouldn't be surprised if some hardware was beginning to fail.

Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.
OK, do it twice. Once after one hour of normal usage, and once after one hour of gaming.

Also stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Let us know the result.

Since I knew opening multiple twitch streams always caused a crash, I tried doing it in safe mode just to see what happens. It ran 6 streams for 25 minutes with no crash.

Going good

Two more tests I am suggesting .....

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If memtest comes free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Ran memtest for 12 hours with 0 errors, and unfortunately driver verifier didn't give me crash dumps since I only got hard locks/spontaneous reboots and no bluescreens. I got the 'screech of death' some of those times as well.
