sisnce cleaning out the dust got you playing for a couple days, this screams heat issue.

Heat from CPU or GPU, still undetermined.

Temps do not look too bad. I do notice that the +5v is running at 2.53v. These usually have a +\- 10% range. Could this be a problem.

The voltages 12v, 5v etc I believe are from the Power Supply in your Tower. If this is your problem, at least it is not an expensive nor difficult replacement.
Perhaps some the more experienced Guru's will jump in and advise.

Thanks johnny i was hoping one of the more experienced Guru's would have a look at the dump files to see if i can get a quicker fix,
In the mean time i will remove sound card to see if this affects it in any way

Thanks
