Windows 7: Random BSOD with self initiated reboot (ME3) - Win8 Pro x64

Random BSOD with self initiated reboot (ME3) - Win8 Pro x64

Good Day everyone,

I hope some of you might be able to help me sort out a little problem that is about to get really annoying.

I had this problem on Windows 7 Ultimate and decided to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro as this might solve the issue... Well apparently the BSOD still occurs, randomly.

What I get is: When ingame (i.e. Mass Effect 3) the display freezes, sound continues for about 10 seconds, screen goes black and comes back only showing a white line in the middle of the screen accompanied by a buzzing bass sound, ten seconds later it reboots automatically.

I would like to mention that this BSOD seems to occur randomly.
I mean, I can be lucky and play Mass Effect 3 for 4 hours in a row or it goes bad and the BSOD occurs upon entering this game or any other game.

I attached the needed Dump Files to this post, though I myself can't read them... well I don't understand them!

Any help is appreciated,

Windows 8 Pro x64

Hey Guys,

I read up some posts on this forum and decided to do a Furmark GPU test, and voila I got another BSOD after roughly a minute. It might just have been that I didn't read the part of the tutorial where it said: Stop the Benchmark as soon as you see artifacts or the temperature ditches out.

Well the temperature slowly went up from something like 33 degree celsius to 71 degree celsius and as soon as it hit 71 degrees the screen went Black, I heard the buzzing noise again and the machine restarted itself.

I am using a Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 with nvidia display drivers 311.06, just checked and yep there's an update (314.07). Gonna install that and see whether the BSOD is gone... *fingers crossed*

As I said, I appreciate your help!
In the meanwhile I will go and skim the forum for additional ways to track down my issue.
