BSOD Unexpected Hardware Failure, Please help

Hi,


Ive just built my new PC, had it up and running for 2 days working perfectly until my BD drive broke but that hopefully isnt the problem im here for. Im now getting BSOD (unexpected hardware failure) every 30 mins or so (yes i have uninstalled and removed the BD drive). I installed Win 7 Home Premium first to be able to use my upgrade disk to Win 7 Pro.


What Ive tried so far:

-System Restore
-Boot Win 7 Disk and repair tools + memory check
-HDD check program returned no errors
-(when i get my new BD drive back from ebuyer i will run memtest from bootable cd)
- Various Hardware tools and windows repair tools


Here are my dump and system files as from the section sticky: Attachment 162826

and here is the minidump files: Attachment 162922

System Details:

i7 2600k
GeForce GTX 580
WD 1TB HDD
2*2GB Corsair DDR3 @ 1886MHz
ASROCK Extreme 4 Motherboard
Cosair 750W PSU

Windows 7 Profesional 64 bit

PS: It seems to happen when doing power hungry operations i.e. playing games/installing games

Any help appreciated ty

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
