I have Windows 7 SP1 and it is crashing endlessly with bsods. It has been fine but lately (2 days) it has gone bonkers with crash dumps claiming all types of errors with rdyboost, fltmgr, ntoskrnl, p17.sysntfs.sys, win32k.sys, ndis.sys etc. Cannot even log into safe mode sometimes. I had installed Acronis to recover another failing Hdd and Keyscrambler.

With the large variation of errors and the fact you can't get into safe mode - I would be very suspicious your RAM.

Have you tried running Mem Test

Best practice is to test each stick individually and for a good few hours. I normally leave it running overnight.

Yup, Been there done that. Full test w/o any issues popping.

Heat? CPU fan working correctly? Dust buildup?

Checked my hardware throughly, my (externally) installed temp sensors read normal. No hdd clicking, no smell of disaster, nothing at all. Board battery is new and a month ago I had reapplied the thermal paste on Cpu and Gpu.
