    You OC'ed your system from 3.20GHZ to 3.60GHZ. Turn off OC until you get your system stable.
    Dump Files still indicated nvlddmkm.sys driver from NVIDIA is at fault.
    How did you update your Video driver ? Try to do it one more time, this time click on Customize and on the bottom left of next screen check on "Fresh Install" or something like that, I don't remember but what it does is removing what you have in your system and make a fresh copy.

    1. Did you re-install the video driver as suggested above ???
    2. I thought that you've already uninstalled AVAST. If you search the forum, there are a lot of people having BSOD because of that

    Yes, I uninstalled avast before i did a clean install of the video driver. It's the 'fresh' install you mentioned, just different verbage.

    As your pc is probably still under warranty I would suggest to bring it back for repair.

    Would like to avoid doing that if possible.

    The last thing I can suggest is to open the case and take out your video card, clean all the contacts with a soft cloth, Fan, blow out any dust, and reseat it back to the case. Sometimes if your Video Card does not make good contact, it will also cause BSOD.

    As I said, your BSOD indicated the video driver is the cause, nothing else since you've already uninstall avast.

    BTW, do you use any program that monitor the GPU temperature ???

    No I don't, can you suggest a good one? I'll leave the computer off though, start a game up, and it does it maybe 1 minute in, so it shouldn't be getting too hot right? I'll clean the case out, and make sure the video card has good contacts and test it out.
