How hot?

Use this link and fill out your System Specs.
Speccy Free System information Utility

Use Core Temp , to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.

Last two recent crashes:
Usual causes:  Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus,  Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
Invalid system memory was referenced.
Could not read faulting driver name
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  X64_0x50_BAD_IP_nt!_??_::FNODOBFM::_string_+43d86
Usual causes:  Device driver, Hardware (Memory in particular)
A hardware corruption occurred, e.g. failing RAM holding kernel code or data.
IMAGE_NAME:  memory_corruption
This might be caused by the CPU overheating and throttling causing the memory to have an error.

First thing to do is make sure the CPU is not overheating.
Do not do any further testing unless the CPU is running at safe temps.

Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.
How to Post a Screenshot in Seven Forums
Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are.

Run memtest86+ for 7 full passes, with all RAM cards installed.
Best to run overnight as depending on the amount of RAM you have may take several hours.
If you get any errors you can stop the test.

Those temps are high, AMD usually run cool. I have seen many running stress tests at 50C or below.
Are you using the stock CPU cooler?

Max CPU temp is 61C, add 5C for the core temp max core temp is 66C.

Were you OC'ing the CPU and RAM?

Post the full crash reports if your have another crash.

it only happens during borderlands. i am using the stock cooler. i have a hyper 212 EVO.

what can i do to cool it?
clear my case?
reseat the cpu?
change the fan?
more fans?

my cable management is noexistent, will arranging wires help at all, or is this all the fans/thermal paste?
