Try uninstalling Boom and see if it makes a difference. If it does, try downloading and installing the latest version.
I think it's Yosemite 10.10.4.  Is that what you have installed?  My system just froze, crashed, and rebooted 3 times in a row yesterday.  It also did that 10 days ago.

Reset the SMC.
Reset the PRAM.

Depending on which bunch of software you run, you'll need to do both of those quite often to keep your system stable and reduce your freezing, crashing and random resets.  I can't count how often I've had to do that so far.  It's definitely up in the mid double digits during the 2 years I've had my current Mac.  I've had to reboot more frequently than once a month too.  The only macs I see that don't reboot, are the ones that only do basically a single task and users do nothing else on them.

On a Thinkpad T20, with my equivalent usage pattern of heavy use and lots of software testing, I think I've only had to do equivalent to the SMC reset maybe 3 times total in the 7 years I had it.  I've also had maybe 3 system reboots or blue screens on 3 Windows systems I've run in that same time.  I also didn't have to reboot every month since I knew which service I could stop to safely install certain patches without a reboot.
If you are having to constantly reset the PRAM and the SMC, something is wrong. You should almost never have to do that you need to do some diagnostics to see what is causing the problem. The next time you get a freeze or crash, check your system logs to try to find out what is causing the problem.  There is a good chance you have some outdated software that is incompatible with Yosemite.

Yes, I've checked those.  I've mentioned in the previous post that I use my system for testing software.

OSX, and Apple in general, has never been so good at running multiple 3rd party programs and staying on for long periods of time.  It's stable for general users, but not so stable for someone that runs multiple applications for testing throughout the day.  OS X will crash more than Windows when you run those.  This has been the case for a decades.  My experience is certainly not typical, even in the pre-OS X days.  Yes, for me, classic Macs have always crashed more than Windows of the same era, even in a brand new install.  I also wipe my system anew and only copy just the data files and Macs still crash more for me.  I can keep Windows cruft around without killing the system, but Macs are not that robust in comparison.

It's not the drivers.  If I run the same limited, basic software that everyone else runs, it would be stable.  I know what's crashing it; it's the 3rd party application.  The crashes also necessitate a SMC & PRAM reset.  Maybe the 3rd party app programmers for Apple are just less experienced, or the API is not as robust, or Apple lets the programmer spill over into kernel space with buffer overruns.

In any case, I'm not just running the plain, vanilla, Apple programs that general consumers use.  Modern Windows contains user space programs better.  A single program will generally not crash Windows and blue screen it anymore.  You'd have to install a virus with elevated administrator privileges for that.  This also means that viruses and trojans on Mac are going to be a big problem once the criminal gangs decide that Macs are profitable enough to target.  Apple has been relying on low market share obscurity for "safety".  They're about a decade behind in real OS security because of lack of interest and lack of attack experience.

I test installs.  I make boot images.  Clients use 3rd party software.  I support a lot of different systems.

The only time my Mac didn't crash a lot for me was when I didn't use it.
Maybe so, but I see no indication that Slingshot is using his computer as testbed for multiple third party applications and in his case it would probably be more helpful to try to isolate the app or driver that is causing the kernel panic than suggest a bandaid solution of multiple SMC resets.
Sure, track down the issue if it's continuing, but always do the relatively quick 1st solution to see if that fixed it before wasting time pouring through voluminous logs.  I find that, except for my special case, the SMC and PRAM resets fix 90% of the issues before they have to come to me.
