Windows 7: BSOD while gaming

BSOD while gaming

I got a BSOD problem while gaming. I did overclock my PC but tested the CPU and left the ram yet at a very save clock. After the first crash I increased the CPU core voltage, just to be sure. After the second crash I also underclocked the memory. But then it crashed again.
Those three crashes appeared are while playing Battlefield Heroes, no virus scan installed yet(installed a SSD as main drive a week ago, so reinstall).

Also I had 2 freezes while playing Mass Effect 2, wich then didn't dumped anything and a hardreset was needed.

The only thing I recognized about when the crashs are appearing is that it is while gaming and just in the momment where I think "why now T_T" but I don't think it will help. but I don't think I get BSOD just because someone up above there don't likes me :P

However, thanks in advance

[edit]
Also added information to my profile system specs

[edit 2]
Also want to mention that the system runned like 5 day's in a row, collection SysLog from the router, without any problems. Used it to surf a bit but not more. No crash, but when I played for like 30-120 minutes I got a BSOD

Hello Welcome to SF,

I guess the problem is with your Intel Processor Driver
Intelppm.sys. Make sure you have the most updated Chipset drivers. Also try these steps

  1. Click Start, then type devmgmt.msc, and then press ENTER.
  2. In Device Manager, expand Processors.
  3. Right-click Intel® Core™ i7-920 Processor, and then click Update Driver.
  4. Reboot the System
See whether that fixes the problem. Also found a driver from 2005

Code:
 ASACPI.sys   Mon Mar 28 08:00:36 2005 
which is well know for the problem. Its for Asus Utility which is not required. Here is the updated one download and install it

MB_WIN7_ATK.ZIP

Try these steps and report us how it goes.

Hope this helps,
Captain

I checked the Processor drivers, those are up to date. I also updated the Asus drivers and will check/report later on if more BSOD occur.

Yet another BSOD, again while gaming.
I had the CPU clock and RAM clock back to what I had it before the first BSOD.
