Nothing definitive but I would start updating your creative drivers

Your CPU is overclocked in all of the crashes. Please remove the overclock, do not use software similar to or exactly the same as SysTool SysTool - System Tweaking and Overclocking Utility, and load setup/optimized defaults in the BIOS. Uninstall any software from your system, such as SysTool, that is designed to provide overclocking via software.

If you have a turboboost feature for the CPU, disable that, as well.

All dmps point to your overclock as the likely cause. Your voltages are not set up correctly for the overclock. If you would like to overclock, do not use software to do so. I can get an overclock expert to help you set it up through the BIOS, but software does not provide the correct steps to allow a stable overclock.

Before even trying the overclock through the BIOS, you need to find out if the system will run stable without any overclocking enabled. Stop overclocking for the time being and remove any overclocking software!!!
