Your GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560.... and the driver is too old.
Code:
fffff880`0f074000 fffff880`0fd13580   nvlddmkm T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: nvlddmkm.sys
    Image path: nvlddmkm.sys
    Image name: nvlddmkm.sys
    Timestamp:        Mon Mar 21 02:27:20 2011 (4D866A30)
    CheckSum:         00CA5CB8
    ImageSize:        00C9F580
    Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
So it is failing.
Code:
fffff880`05555608  fffff880`0f2674c2Unable to load image nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys

Download and install this one: NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL

It shows a hardware error.
Code:
BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa80079bb028, be000000, 800400}

Probably caused by : GenuineIntel

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
No specific hardware component can be blamed.

Stop overclocking.
Code:
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3550 CPU @ 3.30GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3300
CurrentSpeed: 3399
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? 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. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

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 it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the CPU.

Also plan to update the BIOS to Version 2303: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8...Desk_Download/

The best way is to clear coms.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

But on some ASUS boards, it gives adverse results. Better you enter the BIOS and set the hardware (GPU, CPU and RAM) to its defaults.

Yes, it does. But you did not tell as about its wattage.

The CPU is running extremely hot.

Attachment 313973

Dismantle the computer. Clean all inside very carefully, without breaking anything. Clean all the air vents and fan grills, so that it can blow the hot air out effectively. While re-seating. apply new thermal paste to the CPU.



Do it as early as possible!
