borderline PSU as I mentioned above :\ .

You might try to stop using Malwarebytes and Eset for the time being as a troubleshooting procedure.
I reiterate do you have a "weaker" GPU to test with?
Hi Yoyo. My PSU is a Corsair CX750M. It is about 1 year old or less.

My 2TB Hard Drive is a Western Digital Caviar Black. I did not test any of the HDDs for errors or anything.

I might have an old GPU somewhere to try, but would it really change anything? I ran the FurMark test and didnt have any artifacts (I could rerun it as I forgot what were the temps on it).

Also, the BSODs started as I reinstalled Malwarebytes. Should I try not running the program and testing or completely uninstall it? I have been using NOD32 for years so I dont think it is the cause.

Thank you sir,
Maesen

Hi! and thanks for the added info .
By asking for a "weaker" GPU I was looking to lower the Wattage draw of the system, have you
stress it again and compare.
The dump show that cores 2 and 3 were frozen so don't have information as to what they were doing
this type of bugcheck can go both ways Hardware / Software, I simply opted to test the hardware
side first mainly because of the Wattage draw of your system versus your PSU's capabilities
along with the fact that it bugchecks at will when stressed, that is if I got the right impression?

I you feel that the issues have started adjacent to the installation of Malwarebytes, by all means uninstall
it you have nothing to lose really, you can always reinstall once we're done here .

Good news! Since you told me Malwarebytes was concerned by the crashes, I stopped it in the Processes. I tried running Prime95 again and it is torturing my CPU, but no crash so far! Been over an hour now.

I will use my computer as I'd do normally and come back to give you guys a heads up on how it is. If no BSOD, Malwarebytes was the culprit causing the crashes. I believe its the "Realtime Protection" from the program that causes all this trouble. Anyway I closed the whole program and so far the CPUs are handling the torture tests without issues.

Thank you so far, I'll be back for report soon.

Been 2 days of BSOD free! Apparently, Malwarebytes was causing it. Was it the real-time protection? Havent verified yet. I completely closed Malwarebytes and havent launched it since then.

So I believe this problem is solved. As to why would Malwarebytes cause the crashes, that is another question.

Thank you all who helped me troubleshoot this issue,
I wish you an awesome new year,
Maesen.

I don't think we've seen a case here where Malwarebytes is responsible for a BSOD, so you might want to keep monitoring your system......

Just keep monitoring your system. If you get a new BSOD, upload it here again.

Alright. We are a few months later and today it started again. I got about 8 BSODs in 4 hours. All were the same that I had 6 months ago.

I still hadnt used Malwarebytes since then and today I thought it coulda had a service up or something but no so I completely uninstalled it. Didnt solve it. I did all the Windows Updates, I updated Graphics driver, ran CCleaner. Scanned with SuperAntiSpyware.

Nothing did whatsoever. So, would any of you, please, help me resume where we left. I can supply any infos you need. I just need to be remembered how to send anything (minidumps, Speccy screens, etc).

Thank you all in advance,
Maesen

EDIT: I did not install any new programs today or last week so I dont really understand why it started doing BSODs again. Also, my boot time has been really slowing down lately. Takes a good 3 mins to boot (hangs on the Starting Windows par). If it matters.

Gimme a few mins, I did manage to get the software to do its thing then decided to reboot cuz computer was acting wayyy too slow. Now it wont boot. I get a BSOD at startup and I am prompted to go into recovery mode. And when I do so, the screens hangs blank.

I'll give it an hour to load since I have read it sometimes takes this long. If it is still blank, then idk.
