I have new system build with configuration below. Been together for 2 days and immediately started noticing that it would stop BSOD and restart without any reason I could find.

I get same error. doesn't seem to be triggered by anything I can find. i've checked drivers, did memory test all of which checked out OK.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Please let us know what error messages that you got. The exact content of the STOP message is important.
Please zip up the minidump files from C:\Windows\Minidump and upload them with your next post. From that we can get an idea of what's going on.

It appears that the errors all have occurred in the spider.exe thread. Do you use the Dr. Web antivirus or a program called Email Scraper?
It could also be malware related.

If you're unsure, search your entire computer for spider.exe, then right click on each instance and select Properites, then select the Details tab. Let us know the location of each file along with the details of each one so we can figure out what's causing this.

You may want to read this review about it: http://www.webpronew...rackback-spider

But, as it's the thread that the crashes are occurring in, I'd suggest uninstalling it to see if that fixes the BSOD's.
If you decide to reinstall it, download a new copy to install (in case your current copy is corrupted).

despite, what that person says, it actually works quite well, as long as it's not abused.

for about 2 weeks it didn't crash it and then it started again. I'll do as you said and uninstall and then install again and see if that helps.

thanks,

Mark

Actually, the above doesn't matter.
It's not important where it happened, but what was the cause.
In all cases, epfw.sys was at fault.
epfw.sys is part of ESET Smart Security
Do you use it?

Yes, is there some way to go around ESET?

Well, ESET is a known, and reputable program, so I's rather ask Trackback Spider makers about the problem.
I'm totally un-familiar with the program.
