Windows 7: BSOD Playing high demand Games or Watching/streaming videos online

BSOD Playing high demand Games or Watching/streaming videos online

Hi, so for the last few months Ive gotten a worse and worse BSOD. I noticed it first in the flight simulator when I would zoom when looking out the canopy and I would see distant enemy fighters and then I would get BSOD just as i saw them. Then Flying my RC simulator I get BCOD very quick. Now it seems when watching a TV show online and clicking on a video of something funny or interesting it will get BSOD. To me it seems as if anytime the computer is working hard on something visual it shuts down for the BSOD. Anyways here is the info needed, here is from when i restart and it shows me the "details", and following the instructions ive attached the file I made with the DM log. Thank you guys. Im considered a Newb going into this "deep" with computers but im a quick learner so I hope you will stick with me so I can get this figured out So i can start my online video editing class. Thanks!

These bugchecks indicate a Machine Check Exception has occurred which means the hardware has signified (via a standard messaging interface) through the processor driver that an correctable hardware error has occurred ,the system then bugchecks on purpose, the result is a 0x124 error.

It looks like a very strong indication of a bad CPU, given that all your dump files show this:

Error         : DCACHEL1_DRD_ERR (Proc 0 Bank 0)
  Status      : 0xb400200069000135
  Address     : 0x0000000032c10c00
  Misc.       : 0x0000000000000000
A level 1 cache data read error on the primary processor of the first memory bank, this is a consistent error within your bugchecks, this is bad, especially on the first processor.

I recommend running Prime95 to find out.

Stress test your CPU with Prime95

I recommend running Prime95 for around 2 hours

warning   Warning

As with most stress tests your component's temperature will rapidly increase.
It is advised that you download a temperature monitoring program like HWmonitor
Keep an eye on your temperatures and stop the tests if it starts to overheat

Try taking out the CMOS battery on the motherboard then placing it back in to ensure no improper settings have been made.

Post back the results.

Thank you for the quick reply. Will the computer be unusable during this testing period? Or can I still use the computer as it does its thing?

So I was about 5-10 min into the test, the temps were going from 90-99*C and then it crashed.

That's very bad.
Check your airflow, clean out any dust and reapply thermal paste.

Is the CPU still under warranty?

No its not under warranty. Ill open it up and make sure it has airflow. I let it sit on my bed all day and my buddy was saying thats prob got the thermal paste hot and dryed out and disconnected. What part is it that is getting hot? It said AMD k10 i think. Worst case am i looking at a new one of those? Ill open it up and blow it out and reapply paste tho on the heatsinks i see.

ok so i thought i posted this already but i guess i didnt. So I opened it up and blew it out and reapplied the thermal paste, I had removed the cpu because i thought i had a replacement but it turns out i didnt. Once i put it back together it seemed like things were better, i could use my simulator and it didnt crash, but the as soon as i tried plugging in the HDMI and simming on the tv it crashed. Now it crashes pretty often when im playing videos, Sometimes ill even wake up and if i left it runnign on my nightstand ill notice its at the user select screen because it crashed while i was sleeping and nothign was playing. Should i try a new cpu? Or is this considered a APU? It has integrated graphics right?
