Windows 7: Custom Built PC BSOD Randomly ntoskrnl.exe+72a40

Custom Built PC BSOD Randomly ntoskrnl.exe+72a40

Hello, I am currently experiencing BSOD usually while under load playing CS:GO or WildStar (crashes occur instantly or after a few hours) and I will upload the .dmp files.

-I've tried resetting CMOS as I was previously overclocked.
-I've tried running Memtest to diagnose ram (both sticks were tested separately for ~4 hours)
-I've tried reinstalling Nvidia drivers
-I've tried moving anything plugged into USB 3.0 to 2.0 ports
-I've ran sfc /scannow everything checks out
-I've run any windows updates (Including optional updates)

Any other suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance!

temps have all been fine, also it's pretty new... I have only had it for about 2 weeks and for the first two weeks everything was smooth sailing. The day BSOD's started happening I don't even think I downloaded or updated anything.
