Windows 7: BSoD randomly while starting up PC, error 0x000000F4

BSoD randomly while starting up PC, error 0x000000F4


My computer was running fine back 8 to 10 months unless I started getting these BSoD errors.
Okay let me clear few things first;

1. My PC randomly started restarting itself while playing Dota 2 game.
2. Later on I randomly get these BSoD while starting up my PC and even while normally browsing social media sites, etc. While getting BSoD while starting up my PC, it creates a dump file and then boots normally and I don't really get any BSoD until next restart.
3. I never had any BSoD while playing Dota 2 but my PC instantly restarts.
4. I had several Processor thermal trips which was due to over heating of the processor for which I applied thermal grease which helped the issue.

Okay so I'm still not able to find the root cause of the BSoD as I updated all my drivers. Did check my Hard disk for errors but it was perfect. Ran memory diagnostic through BIOS and it was just fine as well.

MY GPU does over heat while gaming its reaches upto 72'C and 54'C in idle state.
Idle state CPU temp is normally 40'C and while gaming it goes upto 55'C.

Specs of my system are as follows.

Processor: Intel Core i3-3210 3rd Gen.
Mother Board: Intel DH61HO
Memory: 4GB Kingston 1 stick.
Graphic card: GeForce Nvidia 9800GT (XFX made)
HDD: Western Digital Blue - 320GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
PSU: C-Tech 450W

I have also attached the dump files created through SF Diagnostic tool and a screenshot of my Hardware temperature.

Thanks in advance for any assistance, highly appreciated.

OK, I'll help. Try installing a genuine copy of Windows. You have an ACER PID on an Intel motherboard.

When you've installed a genuine copy report back if you are still having BSODs and we'll be glad to help. Nobody will attempt to debug a counterfeit installation such as yours because they can contain heavily modified code that cause the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.
