Windows 7: BSODs in BF4 and other games. Ntoskrnl.exe 0x1a, 0x0a, 0x3b, ntfs.sys

BSODs in BF4 and other games. Ntoskrnl.exe 0x1a, 0x0a, 0x3b, ntfs.sys

Hello, I get random BSODs, especially when playing games, like Battlefield 4 and Alien: Isolation. When it doesn't blue screen, the games often stop working with an error message and quit to Windows. I tried using Bluescreen viewer to find out which driver was causing it, but the errors are varied and caused by different drivers. I don't see much of a pattern. The drivers and their errors are:

a) Ntoskrnl.exe, 0x1a, 0x0a, 0x3b
b) ntfs.sys: 0x0d1
c) dxgmms1.sys: 0x0fc.

I reinstalled Windows about 3 weeks ago so these are all the crash dumps I have.

I've tried the following:
1. Ran Memtest for 7 hours (I've been told that if there are problems with the RAM memtest tends to find it within minutes)
2. Clean install of Windows 7, along with all the drivers
3. Cleaned out the CPU fan and heat sink
4. Checked the CPU temps during gaming- maxes out at 80+ degrees.

I'm pretty certain it is a hardware problem, given that I tried a clean install of my computer. I'm pretty bummed out, and hopefully you guys can help.

Crash dump from SF Diagnostic Tool is attached.

Some of their points out to critical system files. But what i can see is that one BSOD was caused by your display driver. I know that you have already upgraded it. Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU) remember to pick the latest version for it.

1. Go into safemode and run DDU
2. Pick Nivida and tick the box where it says Delete C:/NIVIDIA and C:/AMD Folders.
3. Choose Delete and restart.
Now goto Nividas website and download your graphics drivers.

If you are curious to know what the critical system files are it is: csrss.exe and the one i cant explain (that the dump pointed to) is system.
You might wanna remove Steam and see if the bsod with Memory_magement(1a) stops.
