    Nothing was definitively cited in your dumps as a probable cause. However, when we see BSODs occuring linked to gaming many times it is due to a video card driver or two. So try the following...

    1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions; make sure the version will work with your OS) to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

    Hmmm, are the freezes still only occuring when gaming or at other times as well? Check to see if your video card fan is functioning properly.

    OK I under-clocked my CPU back to default 2.4 (Q6600) seems to have stopped the crashing at least I hope

    Overclocking has been known to cause your type of issues. If I had known you had oc'ed I would have suggested that you ease back to see if you gain stability.
