Windows 7: BSOD occurs after 5 - 10 mins of playing game.

BSOD occurs after 5 - 10 mins of playing game.

Hi, I am new to posting in forums but have regularly use previous threads which have been really useful, so here goes. My sons computer crashes after about 5 or 10 minutes of gaming (longer on occasions). I've tested the NVIDIA GEForce 660GTX using FurMark and it runs fine. I've run MemTest and the RAM appears OK. I ran Prime95 for an hour and all seemed OK.

I'm thinking now this could be a software issue. I've reinstalled the op system and loaded the latest NVIDIA drivers and chipset drivers:-
990FX Extreme 3 mobo
AMD FX6 6300 3.5GHz processor
Windows 7 64 bit

but it still occurs.

I've attached the SF Diagnostic results in the hope someone can help me sort out the problem as I cant seem to establish a theme on whats going wrong.

Just to add some detail. The games involved are Steam based - Dragon Age Origins, Far Cry2 and also LoL.

Thanks Dill

Just had the psu tested and it's ok. Also just replaced the hard drive as the original seagate was broken. I'm going to try re seating all the hardware.

Thanks fxStriker, re seating didnt help but also picked up a tip that memtest86+ should be run for 22 passes! So I just let it run and 4 1/2 hrs later it threw an error so my RAM is on its way back to be replaced. That's two components from a new build that were faulty. Hopefully that's it now.

you may want to check your bios to see if your ram is being over clocked i had a problem with a new board over clocking my ram causing instability; i had not touched it and it was out the box
