BSOD while playing any game

  1. Hi,

    I am facing problem with BSOD.

    Its just if I play a game in 3-4 minutes game freezes and crashes my system to safe start. Same does not happen on 1080p movies on VLC Player.

    I already had updated nvidia drivers. Then felt may be new drivers are unstable so also went to safe mode installed some really old stable driver. However problem remained the same.

    I also did memtest. I am sorry I ran out of patience but post 2 hrs also it showed new error. also there are no artifacts as such on the screen.

    My System :

    Intel Core I7 920
    Gigabyte X 58 USB3
    Gskill F3-12800CL7T-6GB
    GTX 580 Twin Frozr II
    Xonar Essence ST
    Corsair HX 850
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

    If I have not filled in info as per desired format, do let me know if something I need to add. Sorry n Thank you for the same.

    1. Did you have any issues prior to installing the latest Nvidia drivers?

    2. It was not clear whether or not Memtest showed errors. Were there any? For memtest to be effective it really needs to run 7 to 10 Passes. Most people start it before going to bed and then check it the next morning.

    3. Is there any dust built up in the case? Especially on your video card fan?
