Windows 7: BSOD during Battlefield 3 & now randomly - error 0x00000124

BSOD during Battlefield 3 & now randomly - error 0x00000124

Hello, everyone! Hope you're all having a great weekend.

I've been getting problems with a BSOD primarily when playing BF3. I assumed my video card was overheating and manually turned up its fan level. This seemed to work as I wouldn't get BSODs 10 minutes into the game anymore.

Now I am not so sure if it's temperature related. My EVGA Precision-X tool says my video card is at 36c idle. It goes into 52c when under stress and since I boosted up my fan it doesn't pass this number.

Now I'm starting to get Blue screens when idling with no intensive applications up. (League of Legends is running, but I'm not in a game) Just some web pages. It seems to happen randomly.

I had already used CCleaner + Driver Sweeper to make sure there was no trace of any of the old nvidia drivers before installing new ones as I have recently got a new video card.

My old nvidia 590 completely ceased to work and would Blue Screen at start up after being solid for six months, if that information is relevant.

Enclosed are my dmp files. I hope I did this right.

Thanks for your help, guys
