Crash Dumps on new PC?? Help!!!

I have recently upgraded my system as I wanted to start playing more upto date games, I bought a new MB, Asus P8Z68-V LX Socket 1155, and processor, Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz Socket 1155, I also bought G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory Kit, I am using this with two harddrives, and a Geforce 460 GTX, also my psu is 650 watts. When playing on steam every so often, my comp gives me BSOD and says it is crash dumping, then more recently it just has been freezing with a loud whirring noise coming from my speakers, then goes to crash dump screen, I am worried that maybe my PSU cant run my computer, as my new mb has two power pins with only one in, but a friend assured me that you do not need both to run, and my omp runs fine apart from this, also top of my pc feels quite hot to touch which made me wonder is it a failing PSU, but I do not know what causes this error, I have taken a pic of error codes after windows restart if thats any help, please help me !!!!!!!

Right I have bought new new case and PSU, only one problem is that one of the extractor fans is a molex and nothing in my comp has molex adapter now, so do I just need to buy an adapter with one female, and one male end? I cant really say much bout performance and I havent got full fans working, or have a played a game yet. Also my two fans have three settings, Low, Medium, or high, obv highs better, but what do you reckon???

Also one more thing, Ive just checked my temps, and at the highest temp is

CPUTIN at highest it is 93C is this still bad????

Please reply as I wanna finally sort this!!!

What PSU did you get as I do not know of one that does not have molex connectors for the simple reason that as you have noticed there are still fans that need that type,but yes you can get an Adapter.

As for your CPU temps I would say that 93C is very high as my 2500K over-clocked to 4.5MHz is showing 38-41C so I would remove the heat-sink clean of the old paste and apply a fresh covering, remember the thinnest coat is all.Make sure to replace the cooler correctly.

My new PSU is a 620w antec gamer pro, cost me 60 pounds. I cant plug molex in as it is male connector, and the psus are all male, so they do not connect, I havent any thermal paste will I have to buy some???
