BSOD from gaming/videos STOP: 0x0000003B win32k.sys

I've been getting this BSOD more frequently in the past few weeks, and I saw in another thread that it is generally a hardware issue. I'm downloading Furmark/Prime95/ and Mtest 86+ right now and will get back to you.

Welcome to the Forum.

Reduce items at start-up: Startup Programs - Change

Perform a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

AVG contributes to BSOD's. Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.
Code:

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Scan with Kaspersky TDSSKiller:Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

ESET online scanner: Free Online Virus Scanner | ESET

Run a System file check (SFC): SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run Disk Check on your Hard Drive(s): Disk Check

Install Service Pack 1: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Check for heating issues using Speccy or HWmonitor

Alright I've done a couple of scans.
No threats found from TDSSKILLER, ESET, sfc, or the disk check.

I just downloaded speccy and I'm gonna check for heat issues, but how do I go about doing that? Do I just use my computer normally for a couple hours then print screen what my speccy looks like?
