BSOD occurring at seemingly random times.

The first few times it happened I didn't let it create the dump files, but the last 2 time I did allow it to create the dump files. Please let me know if I need to provide more information.

I ran sfc /scannow and used HWMonitor. The temperatures looked to be within tolerable levels. I run disk check relatively often, so I don't think that's the problem. I'll wait a little to see if this solved the BSOD before marking this as solved. Thanks koolkat77!
