Blue screen of death after moving computer

Hello all, yesterday I moved my computer and monitors around slightly to put a shelf on my desk and it was working fine then it froze. I resetted it and the keyboard, mouse, screen wouldn't recognise the computer. However I woke up this morning and turned it on, but the computer wouldn't recognise the hard drives, so I replugged them and it recognises it now. However now the Blue of death pops up. The code that it written below is: *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A97E8, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

My computer is a custom built computer, which inbuilt around a year ago, I'll put the specs below:

Proccessor: i7 2600k
Motherboard: z68 Extreme4 Gen3
Graphics card: gtx 560ti
Boot HHD: OCZ SSD 120gb
2nd HHD: 2tb seagate
Ram: 8gb
PSU: Antec TruePower 650w

And the CPU is running really hot, at 75C...

Anyways, any help would be much appreciated,
Thanks Heaps :)

Is your cpu always running that hot or is it just now because you moved it that the temp has gone up?
Did you check the heatsink to make sure it's not loose or has moved in any way and that the fan is still spinning?
If all this happened because you moved the computer then you may have loosened a connection so it might be a good idea to shut down and unplug the psu and then recheck every connection to make sure that they are all seated properly. Then check the video card and the ram and while your doing all this try not to rush and take your time because you do want to make sure of everything.
