Well I put the stick back in and everything works fine. Speedfan works and so does COD 5. I think it was the heat, but I'll keep my comp on for a long time to test my theory. Thanks for the help! I guess I'll just keep my computer aired out and I'll clean it up.

Well then it really was the heat. That would have been suspect #2 after the RAM according to those minidumps. Good to see that it is working again! :)
Post the temps after a game of COD, to see if heat is still an issue.

You may want to reapply thermal paste.

Sometimes, re-seating RAM helps.

I suggest you run Memtest on the suspected stick of RAM, to verify that the RAM is indeed the problem.

Use just one stick of RAM for at least a day, and see how it goes.
If everything fine, do the same thing with the second stick.
