Windows 7: BSOD Occurring Multiple Times Per Day (no singular cause)

Do you know what constitutes safe temps if I want to run the CPU stress test?

Not exactly, some say around 60C but I go for around 80C when I'm running it.

I tried to run Prime95 and the temps shot above 80 C within seconds. Would those temps indicate a CPU problem or would you need to have errors returned along with the high temps?

High temperature means a cooling issue.
Make sure there is no dust inside the case, clean the heatsink and replace the thermal paste.
Note   Note
Replacing thermal plaste must be done properly, if you don't know how to do this please ask someone who does. If this is not done properly it could damage the CPU

Does it make sense for a computer to boot and run for a time with a bad memory stick? Someone suggested that a bad stick would prevent the computer from running at all. I'm trying to ascertain if the problem truly is just a bad memory stick and not the motherboard.

Who is this 'someone'?

Of course it is possible, but then you're looking at more then 1 stick.

I have now used my computer with a single memory stick for 4-5 days (not continuous operation) without crashing. Throughout the process, I have been hesitant to view this as a memory issue because either I have been very unlucky (I've had 3-4 sets of memory sticks with seemingly one failing in each set) or something corrupts the memory sticks (maybe PSU). Nevertheless, my computer is working now. I currently have 4 memory sticks. One seeming to be clearly bad, one working, and 2 brand new which are untested. I'll try my computer with each of the new sticks individually and then I guess the problem can be deemed "resolved." Thank you for all of the assistance provided thus far.

I have tested 3 different memory sticks by themselves for 3-4 days each without problem. I have also begun using 2 sticks for multiple days without issue. I consider my problem solved. Thank you all for the assistance.

BSOD occurring at seemingly random times.
The first few times it happened I didn't let it create the dump files, but the last 2 time I did allow it to create the dump files. Please let me know if I need to provide more information.
