Help with iMac crashes linked to Adobe Creative Suite 6

I have an iMac that is crashing multiple times a day, and when a crash log is created (it doesn't create one for each crash), it points to Adobe In-Design, though each log appears different.
This computer has the full Creative Suite 6 installed. The crash can happen when images are re-sized in Photoshop, but it will also crash when any CS product is open, sitting idle.
The crash will either be every program freezing forcing a hard shutdown, or the screen going grey (with vertical stripes - another hard shutdown) or a CS 6 app freezing until issuing a force quit.

I have already tried the following:
Resetting preferences for each product/purged cache's
Changed Graphics Processor preferences
Disabled OpenGL drawing
Uninstall/re-install of product
Full wipe of the HD, re-imaged with OS X and re-installed CS6
Ran full Apple Hardware Test (no issues)
Opened a case with Apple who also found no issues (though they did report that Bridge was showing up as a source of crashes)

It has also been noted that the top of the iMac is very hot to the touch.

I've attached a couple of the logs taken from the computer.

Looking for any other suggestions on where to look next.

Thanks in advance

You've covered just about everything software related. Your iMac may need an internal clean with a compressed air can to get rid of dust. The procedure varies with different models.

Looks like you are running OS 10.9.4. Does updating to 10.9.5 make a difference?

Adobe suggests you uninstall InDesign, then run the cleaner tool and then
reinstall.
