Windows 7: BSOD How to Detect the Cause of it?

BSOD How to Detect the Cause of it?

~ For this week there has been 2 BSOD i encounter total in Feb, i thought it was just nothing but now I am worried. ~

~ My Computer Specs ~
GPU: GeForce GTX 670
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K @3.20GHz
Memory: 16.00 GB RAM
Resolution: 1920x1080, 60Hz
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
**It does have a cooling system inside which i forgot, and a lot of fans**

* Q: Does heat of the room temperature have anything that can contribute to the cause?, even with a cooling system inside and a lot of fans? As of this moment since my AC is down its really hot in my room.

* Q2: Does dust causes problem on system? it was due for cleaning a month ago but i haven't really got the time to bring it to my local computer tech. Since its heavy, had to wait for my friend to be free as well.

~ Thanks in advance, to anyone can help me solve this problem. ~

If you require help diagnosing the cause of your bsod please read and follow the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and we can take a look

Regards temperatures, yes an increase in room temperature will result in a machine temperature increase but this on its own would not cause a bsod if your cooling system is operating effectively
Dust build up inside the machine will cause your cooling system to not operate as well as it could due to the fans and heatsinks not being able to pass air effectively, this is normally remedied by giving the inside of the machine a good clean out

If you suspect you have an overheating issue then you simply need to monitor the temps on idle and see how they increase when you start using the machine and putting it under load
Idle temps will generally be in the 30-40 degree range, higher than this may be a sign of dust build up and also depends on what type of cooling system you are using ie air or water

You have no windows updates installed, not even service pack 1, I would start there and get the machine up to date and check your temperatures as you seem to suspect they may have something to do with it

~ uhm yeah if its tech stuff, i usually let my tech guy handle that, he teaches me some here and there. If i can do it though, can you point me where to start the downloads? ... Alright i'm gonna check my temps as well. ~

~ I got the temps on my cores ~

Well those temperatures look reasonable enough, maybe a smidge high if at idle but nothing to be too concerned about, have you tried loading up the machine to see how they rise
You could try something like Prime95 stress test to max the cpu and see how the temps respond but if you do, DO NOT leave the machine unattended and monitor temps for a good few minutes and terminate the test immediately if temps rise too high

You can find windows updates in control panel or on your start menu but be aware it will take many hours to get all the updates done and will require many reboots/reruns of windows update to catch up
