New build prone to crashing / kernel error 41

I have recently built myself a new PC, i have my OS running from a RAID 0 array, i am aware that these are unstable at times but whats happening doesnt seem to add up in terms of the drives failing. I looked through my event viewer log and found the following :



Does this seem correct, i have tried to re install windows several ti9mes but the problem keeps occuring, i really cannot work properly on the system if it keeps happening, but would like to try and find the problem myself rather than just send it away to be repaired. Thx in advance for any help given JOhn

i have taken a pic of the crash screen i am presented with each time the kernal error 41 occurs...


i did some research and found that the error 41 may be hardware related... can someone point me in the direction of how i need to go about testing my system to find out if this is the case thx.

Follow these BSOD posting instructions. Is this a hardware or software RAID?

No dumps were collected by the jcgriff2 tool, dumps may have been deleted. Did you run any system cleaners(such as Ccleaner) after the crash?
If so wait for the computer to crash and re-upload the file

in my setup of the system, i followed this guide on SSD drive setup :

Solid State Drive (SSD) Tweaks for Windows 7 - Computing.Net

In there it recommends to disable page file creation which is why i had it turned off. Anyway i have now a few options for setting up my paging file for BSOD. Is it best to go with "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" option here, or should i use a custom setting?

For the custom setting i have 8GB of RAM so if i set it up a max size of (1024x8)+1MB that would seem to make sense, although i was unsure about what i should setup the inital size to?
