Windows 7: BSOD on launch of various games 0x0000003b

BSOD on launch of various games 0x0000003b

Hello SevenForums! Longtime lurker here, I figure its time to register an account and share my problem. I've been having issues for some time now, I have recently reinstalled windows, It looked like my problems were solved, but I guess not.

Before my reinstall of windows my symptoms were as follows: Frequent freezes in Payday2, occasional freezes in CS:GO, never a problem in Arma2 (these are my 3 main games). Sometimes the game would freeze the whole computer and I would have to manually reset the machine, If the whole computer DIDN'T crash my video drivers would let me know they have recovered from a crash, If I tried to launch any game after my video drivers crash WITHOUT restarting my machine first I would get a BSOD. I turned on crashdumps intending on posting here, but as soon as I enabled that the BSOD's stopped and it went back to just the freeze, so I could not obtain a dump.

So I reformatted ALL my drives, installed windows, and ravaged the internet in my community to get all my data back.

Everything was running fine, until I decided to give Planetside 2 a try with a friend. First launch i was faced with a BSOD, so I made sure my drivers were all in check, they were, so I uninstalled/reinstalled my video drivers to be sure. BSOD. I rolled my drivers back a version. BSOD. I rolled back a further version. BSOD. So I went back to the current drivers (Catalyst 14.9). I knew something was obviously wrong, so I figured I'd come here and make a post when I get around to it since it's only one game, I'll play some CounterStrike in the meantime. BSOD.

So it appears that by trying to fix my problem it have only made it considerably worse.

I have used the DM log collector and attached the output file to my post.

Some interesting points:

CPU is overclocked to 4.5GHz from stock 4.0GHz. I left the voltage on "Auto" because I'm not very experienced with overclocking far enough to have to play with voltages.
My Corsair Force SSD is refurbished.
I swapped my old AMD FX4350 and mobo for my i7 and MSI Z97-GD65 GAMING around the same time I started having problems.
System is only 1 year old, cpu, mobo, and 1 SSD are 6 months old.
I use bbLean rather than explorer for my system shell.
I use multiple displays at different resolutions and hz (D-DVI|1080p@144hz/HDMI|720p@60hz)
I took the computer apart today and reseated everything, also blew out all sockets with compressed air and made sure all the contacts were clean and clear on all cards and ram sticks.

I know how helpful everyone here is, so thank you in advance for the assistance I shall receive.

Little update: Payday2 (BSOD on close) has decided to work now, CounterStrike and Planetside2 both still cause BSOD.
