I started to experience the "Blue Screen of Death" Windows 7 crash after I used the Overdrive feature in AMD's Catalyst software to overclock my HD5670 graphics card. Sure, I got a 10% performance boost (it tweaked it right to the limit), but alas Windows did not like it. Could well be the overclock. I re-installed the graphics card without the overclock and all seems OK.

I get the same thing, but I can run Furmark, Prime95 and Unigene engine for hours without any problems.

Gaming is fine also, so I figured it just Microsoft writing crap software again.

You have an unstable overclock. Have you tried seeing if it crashes at stock settings? If the answer is it does not crash at stock settings then if you were to run a memory test program it would probably fail.
