    I had the same problem but I wasn't really sure it was the heat at first. But I did everything I could to try and fix the thing but nothing helped. One day, I took my small fan from my bathroom, removed the side of my case and left it that way with my fan blowing on full on it and my computer never crashed lol. That's when I knew I had to find a well ventilated case and better fans + new heatsinks for my hardware.

    hen Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps and attach the zip files here. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.
