    BSODS appearing more frequently

    Hello,
    Every now and again for the past 3-4 months I've been getting BSODs, but recently (Within the last month) they've been appearing more frequently than they used to and it's getting quite annoying so I'm hoping that someone might be able to explain what's wrong. Before the last month the error had only appeared about three or four times during regular computer usage.
    My computer is around 6 months old, and I built it myself, I also overclocked it to a stable point within the first week of having it built, so the BSODs shouldn't really have something to do with stability, as I've had it confirmed that it shouldn't be a problem, and I've also tried reducing the OC on both my GPU and CPU within the last four weeks without any luck.

    During the past week the BSODs have been appearing about 3 times a day, ranging from Skype conversations to browsing, to playing games.

    Thanks in advance.

    What are the blue screens saying when it crashes?

    Something along the lines of 'A critical error occured and the system shut down due to it' it only appears for around 10 seconds maybe less, and then it either shuts down the computer completely or restarts it.
