Windows 7: BSOD while playing most video games

BSOD while playing most video games

I've built a custom computer almost a year ago and have been having problems with it eversince. At first random crashes and BSOD were bearable and i didn't make much of them. 5 months ago it finally became unbearable and i wasn't able to play %90 of my video games. They all crashed after 5 minutes, if the computer didn't reboot because of a BSOD first. There were a couple of times where these didn't happen at all and because of this inconsistency i was unable to reproduce this problem when i brought my pc to a computer engineer. Even if they saw what the problem was, no one could tell me what caused it. Needless to say, i have formatted my hard drives and did multiple clean installs since and before then, to no avail.

A month ago with one of my friends we thought we solved the problem after we disabled my motherboard's wi-fi go option and none of the stress tests came back with a BSOD (they didn't last 10 mins before). But after a week the same problem came back and i have been trying to deal with it eversince.

To be more brief:
-Video Games crash to desktop most times.
-Every 4 or 5 crash where i'm playing video games is replaced by a BSOD instead.
-It has given me BSODs a couple of times when i'm not playing a video game but it's very, very rare.

What i have tried:
-Complete clean installs on multiple different internal HDDs.
-Different versions of Windows 7 and even Windows 8.
-Cooling down the system to the point that i'm now using 7 fans.
-I have rolled my LAN and GPU drivers back and did clean installs on them.

I'm sorry if i've given too much information or if i have given too little, but this really has bothered me to the point that i've thought about selling each part individually and building a new custom PC.

I hope you come up with a solution that finally solves this irritating problem that could potentially ruin my life

Edit: After reviewing the .zip file i've attached, i've realized that it only includes a couple of dump files, this i suspect is because i've used ccleaner earlier today.
Most earlier dump files consisted of "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "nvlddmkm.sys" and i realize that the ones i've attached do not. So, there you go.

Don't need it, Yussi - the installation is counterfeit

I know you guys need to ask for a genuine copy of windows, but does it really have something to do with my problem? I've used a genuine copy since the day i first built this computer and because of the BSOD problems i've tried a different copy and version of windows. When that didn't work, i installed my genuine copy again, problems again. I've been in a cycle between genuine and ingenuine copies of windows. If i solved this problem, of course i would be more comfortable using my genuine copy, but reformatting and doing clean installs, dealing with this day in and out is really irritating for a regular person such as myself.

If you're having problems with clean installs, then either you have hardware problems, or you're repeating the same mistakes across installs.

One reason why we insist on genuine installs is that the hacks used to break activation can also break other things, and reduce system stability and security, so it's pointless trying to work on them.

It seems to me like that i don't have any problems immidiately after a clean install but when i start using the computer; installing drivers, restoring backed up data, downloading applications that i use. I'm not convinced that i'm repeating a mistake, what i think and what i've been told is that i have incompatible drivers across hardware. Such as intel clashing with nvidia or something like that. What i need is to determine which piece of hardware creates that problem, so i can replace it and start testing that way.

Are you loading drivers from the manufacturer's disks, their website, or Windows Update?.
Avoid Windows Update ones - they are often very old.
Always get the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website, if you can.

I've tried loading them from the disk and the manufacturer's website, no difference in results.

I'm sorry if i'm not helping, but i really have tried everything that i could think of.

From the sounds of it, it may be a problem with your graphics card - perhaps underpowered or overheated (or just aging?)

That's what i was suspecting also regarding a hardware problem. It's 75c at most while playing a high end game on ultra settings, so i doubt it's an overheating issue. Plus, it crashes in very low demanding video games, and perfectly fine with a very high end game like Crysis 3.

The card itself is 3 years old, so it might be that it's aged.
