BSOD while gaming, possible CPU overheating?

Been googling for a couple days now and stumbled on this site.

Happens normally when gaming.
I've re-applied thermal paste and cleaned everything out.
As you can see from this pictured i provided, the CPU temp range varies.

I'll get about 5 minutes into any game and it'll crash.

I also have the report attached.
Thanks for any and all help.

Check the thermal paste again. What CPU cooler is being used?

You might have just solved it. Rookie mistake, i don't have a cooler.

Still though, It ran just fine a bit ago..

I'll redo the thermal paste.

It's just a basic heatsink with fan. To my knowledge, the fan is running fine.

Check. Is it clean? Is the fan turning?
