Windows 7: BSOD while "idle"(overnight), 4th this year - trouble?

BSOD while "idle"(overnight), 4th this year - trouble?

So, I get to my machine this morning (on/idle all night) and it's the BSOD. Fourth time this year. I haven't done any recent driver updates that I know of and the last time I tried - the newest Radeon Driver was crashing my Neverwinter game (Rollback to prev version!). This is a win7 64 pro i7 6gig from cyberpower - @3yrs old and used at home for gaming/browsing. It was off during the Thanksgiving Week and I played a couple hours of WoW last night. it's been running fine all day since the BSOD forced reboot... (and I usually leave it on for weeks w/o reboot/power cycle)

I attached the dm log collector exe Zip file and hope somebody can see what might be causing my "trouble".

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

The crash is a 0x1A, meaning memory problems.
Test your memory, if the test comes clean (zero errors) run driver verifier to find the offending driver.

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

warning   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.

Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

Note   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.
