Windows 7: PC Hangs when gaming

PC Hangs when gaming

Heya, hoping someone can help me out.

I haven't used my computer in about 3 months and now using it again it crashes when I play a game about 15 minutes in. The game will start stuttering really bad and then just stop and hang. I previously thought it was the nVidia streaming service cause I disabled it and it stopped doing it as much but now it is back to it 1 day later.

I suspected bad memory. Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and got nothing. Where can I start?

There aren't any BSOD's happening by the look of things, but I did notice a few of these errors prior to you initialiing the memory diagnostic:
Code:
Event[32667]:
  Log Name: System
  Source: Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
  Date: 2014-12-05T18:10:47.000
  Event ID: 10016
  Task: N/A
  Level: Error
  Opcode: N/A
  Keyword: Classic
  User: S-1-5-18
  User Name: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
  Computer: Alex-PC
  Description: 
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 
{C97FCC79-E628-407D-AE68-A06AD6D8B4D1}
 and APPID 
{344ED43D-D086-4961-86A6-1106F4ACAD9B}
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
Start with this:

1. Ensure Windows is fully updated
2. Ensure all device drivers are updated (e.g. video card, sound card etc. etc.)
3. Run an sfc/scannow to check for corrupt system files:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.
5. Report the output from the command window once it finishes.

D:\Users\Alex>sfc/scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
That's all.

EDIT: And forgot to mention that after the Memory Diagnostic, I didn't receive any info from it after I logged back on so I FIGURED everything passed.

Yes, nothing was available. Everything is up to date.

EDIT: Added picture. Not sure if this is relevant, now that you are talking about drivers.

OK. You could try testing RAM again, but using the industry standard test:

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

I don't think its a RAM issue though. Possibly an overheating problem. Please follow this, and post back screencapture images of temp.:

Overheating the CPU doesn't seem to be an issue. Stayed stable through a very high burn.
