Just got the realtemp to work and wow do I feel dumb. Anyway I got the XS bench to work, but the sensor test was kinda complicated and was asking for something.

You don't need to do anything with the XS bench or Sensor test.
Just use it to monitor the CPU core temps.

In HWiNFO64 click the Sensor button in the top of the window.
Scroll down to see the CPU core and GPU temps.

Leave RealTemp and/or HWiNFO64 open and play a game for several minutes or until the CPU/GPU temps stabilize, then post a snip here.

2 straight crashes with our air condition turned on. Didn't even have time to record the realtemp temperatures, it blue screened like a boss. And this was with GW2 on window mode. Also, I vaguely remember reading something during the BSOD something like dumping physical memory? Is this a sign of something more worse than a GPU overheating? Seems like I'll need to have my laptop repaired or something this seems out of my hands, hopefully not you guys' hands or that means I'll go straight to the repairs.

When a system crashes you will usually see a Blue screen with some information and a Stop Code.
It will then make a crash dump file, it gets this info from a 'Memory Dump' and puts it a file.
If you follow the instructions below, we can analyze the dump files and try to find the cause of your crashes.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
When posting a new crash dump, include all System File Collection and health reports. They contain valuable information that we can use to find the cause of the crashes.
Post them here for now. If needed I can have the thread moved to the 'Crashes and Debugging' forum later.

You can also open the two monitor programs and play a game that is fairly stressful but doesn't crash on you, that way we can get some info on the CPU/GPU temps.

Will do. Hmm fairly stressful, I have a game that uses cartoon-ish graphics, LoL, but I have max FPS over there. Seems TF2 fits "fairly stressful", problem is ever since this GW2 BSOD fiasco I have been having problems running it. Sigh. I'll give it a shot, thanks.

Post the BSOD reports from the link above and I'll take a look at them.
Usually a lot of info that can help.

I'm currently reading the Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD and would just like to be sure if I'm using the correct dump. It says here that if I have 2 GB or more of RAM installed, then a complete memory dump is unable to be done. I guess I'll go with the Kernel Memory Dump? Also, I took a mobile pic of my screen just seconds before I got a BSOD, and here's what it said :

Display driver stopped responding and has recovered.
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 295.93 stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

I nearly always get this message beside my date and time before a crash, I've been noticing it more frequently after the crashes these days. I also don't understand how has it "successfully recovered", if it mockingly crashes and enters BSOD mode right after the notification

No, use the Small memory dump, also called minidump.

Use Option one:

6. To have Windows Create a Small memory dump (Minidump) File on BSOD
Your graphics driver crash is probably caused by the GPU overheating, we need to check this before it can be ruled out.
The "successfully recovered" would tend to confirm the GPU overheating, meaning the driver recovered but was unable to continue.
