Windows 7: BSOD often when booting but also during use

I really don't know what to say, these symptoms all reek of hardware failure and the last one is a solid piece of evidence convicting it.

For Prime95, while the article says use Small FFTs, I recommend you set it to Blend next time. Of course, make sure the CPU is properly cooled for the endeavor, as it's gonna be at its hottest for this, and you're going to leave it running Prime95 overnight too.

The hardware that are primarily responsible for this kinda problem are the CPU, RAM, Motherboard and PSU. RAM has been tested, and CPU should be tested thoroughly after this next Prime95, so the only thing after that left behind would be Mobo and PSU. Unfortunately, aside from swapping them out, there are no diagnostic tools that you can use for em.
