Windows 7: BSODs when gaming

BSODs when gaming

I've been getting fairly regular BSOD's accompanied with buzzing when gaming, "IRQL not less or equal" deals. It generally happens pretty quickly, and I have watched temperatures under stress with this, so I'm not thinking it's a temp-related issue. I have run memtest for many hours which didn't turn up any issues.

Much more rarely, I have woken up in the morning to see that the system had rebooted from a BSOD error, but 95% of the times it comes under fairly heavy gaming.

dumps attached as requested, thanks so much for the help!

All but one of these are caused by either your video driver or video sub system. I would scrub all remnants of this driver and replace it with a fresh copy.

I would then run a system file check
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

let us know the results
