Hey guys can I ask something about this? When did the BSOD's start as in how long after you completed the build?
Are you sure you don't have any standoffs under the motherboard where there should be none?
Your Temps look good and so do your voltages.
Was the OS installation disk bought brand new or is from another system?

Thanks rshaffer61 for your response.

I will let Ston3wall answer as I had no hands on with the build.

i started getting bsod within the first month of the build, i double checked when installing the motherboard to insure all the standoffs were in their correct locations, the os was a brand new oem windows 7.

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Thanks to Broni for the instructions and program

I have a few other questions starting with where did your OS come from?
Was it bought specifically for this system or is it a copy?
All your BSOD"S seem to be caused by your OS which usually indicates corruption.
Either a reppair installation, SfC or Prallel installation is going to be needed. Could possibily have to do all 3 to resolve this.

OK the issue seems to be the Win 7 OS itself that is causing your problem so lets do a Repair Installation by following the steps HERE.
Please read and follow all instructions carefully.

Are you running Steam from the C drive? or are you running it from a Hot swap HDD?

No system restore back to just before the issue started. Repair installation would be the last step I want to take. If the restore worked then no need for the repair but need to wait for clarification from ston3wall
