Windows 7: Changing ram memory, need some input.

I've seen your temperature monitor and memory test results.
- You don't have any memory failure.
- Your CPU temperature is high (50șC) even without heavy work. Did you cleaned the heat sink? (use a small paint brush and a vacuum cleaner. Dont let the blades spin. Be gentle).
My opinion is that you are having very high temperatures when gaming and then you get the BSOD.
You said that you aren't having problems right now. Is your side cover open?

That memtest screen looks very odd to me as errors are usually shown in red see pic and there is usually not much CPU info on the screen.

So I am just wondering where you got the memtest from see this RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Unless you have an ESD safe vacuum cleaner, you should never use a vacuum cleaner on the inside of a PC. Doing so can generate harmful static discharge which can destroy components.

Yes I agree with Mellon Head and what I do with a vacuum cleaner is to place an aluminium foil strip around the suction nozzle end and add hogs hair brush bristles and run an earth lead to it - fiddly but effective. The same can be said for compressed air cans too any dust blown across a surface can still generate static charges.
For cleaning brushes I always use those cheap hogs hair artists brushes to minimise any static build up while using a brush.
Best thing is prevention and why I use fine filters made from any non synthetic material and place it over as much of the air intakes I can.

Yeah i cleaned the heatsink. Thats right i don't have any issues now which is good but still very confusing to me how it can be so consistent in happening and now it stopped happening all together. Side cover is closed and should i maybe go and get a new thermal paste and apply it on my CPU chip?

That's a zero not an eight but you have to look closely to pick it up. Check it against some of the other characters in the screen shot (the Memory figure of 8586 for example) and the difference become more apparent.

Changing thermal paste wont help.
As you already have Open-hardware-monitor, play your game and then check the max temperature. If it gets above 85șC, change your heat sink with a better one.
