Windows 7 Home x64
BSOD while gaming, benchmarking or stressing, code 116

Windows 7 home premium 64bit retail fresh install
ASUS maximus gene-z/gen3 (few days old)
i5 2500K (few days old)
asus eah hd 4850 with zalman vf900 (couple of years old)

Just bought that new motherboard and the processor with it. Put everything together and did a fresh windows install. Installed the newest radeon drivers, but nearly everytime I start any game the system boots straight away giving code 116. Same thing with the windows system benchmark, 3dmark vantage, furmark stress test. Sometimes it will let me run a test or a game for a little while before booting but most of the time it's a boot before I see any action on the screen. Already reinstalled windows twice, tried the previous radeon drivers, ran memtest for around 6 hours without errors.

STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting Tried to start with the steps in that topic, thinking that it was the same issue, but since the system boots straight away when I even try to run the furmark I decided to make a topic.

Buying a new gfx-card really isn't an issue, but I just want to know that doing so will fix the issue. The requested files are attached.
