Windows 7: Random BSODs Especially whilst gaming (Any games)

It may be the CPU, but it may be the graphics card, too!

Lol! Well I've just ordered a new GPU cooler Accelero Xtreme GTX Pro VGA Cooler

And I am considering purchasing this Corsair Liquid Cooler: Corsair Memory Cooling Hydro Series H100 High-Performance CPU Cooler (CWCH100) -

Both should give me very good temps instead of buying a multitude of case fans.

I can't afford to buy the Corsair CPU cooler at the moment but will most likely get it in the near future but I've ordered the GPU cooler... once installed it'll probably do the trick.
If not then I'll just have to hope that replacing the CPU and the CPU cooler will work >.<'

If not then I might just cry :P

Thanks again Arc!

I didnt want to post here at first, and this isnt a bsod fix, but I just want to add my 2 cents, firstly, the 80-85 degrees on your gpu is normal, I had a 580 stock aircooled gpu and constantly ran 85degrees, I added some fans and it dropped to 78degrees on full load, those cards are made for those temps, they perform just as good as if they ran 60 degrees, nVidia tested this and I can vouch for it too. As for your new purchase, I wouldnt have suggested it, the reason being I had that cooler on a OC'd 580 few months back, it started up fine, but went blue screen asoon as you enter the desktop, after a while of tweeking the bios and making sure everything is back to stock the card ran kind of fine, it ran normal on desktop, but when gaming it crashed and gave distorsion line across the screen. Long story short, in the end after getting a new chassis, it turned out the added cooler was to heavy, it made the card base bend, and as such, made the card loose connectivity on the motherboard after the fans kicked in, which explained why it happened when gaming, the fans needed to turn faster to keep the card cool, and the vibrations was just enough to disconect the card. And no amount of stock screws and motherboard fitting changed that, in the end I had to custom make a bracked that pushed the card up and kept it level. So I am not saying this will be the case with you, but just make sure you have some sort of support for your card,after you install the new cooler. You can get something like the EKWB backplate brackets.(just google ekwb gtx570 backplate bracket). Or make something.

As for the CPU, the cooler you plan on buying is excelent and will definitely improve temps, first check if the thermal paste under the cpu is still...."fresh and intact" ie: no cracks in it or stickyness and definatly not spread over the sides, but the cooler is a great choice, the fans supplied with it are very noisy compared to say noctuas, so if you want, you can replace them with more expensive and less noisy fans at some stage. Also when installing the new card reset your bios(depending on the board it may be different ways) so just check the manula for resetting cmos.
