There are three main errors I see in your logs. Starting with least severe and moving on:

Most likely unrelated to your BSODs, I see this:
Code:

Finally, the probable cause of the BSODs:

  Description: 
A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor ID: 0

The details view of this entry contains further information.
This is related to the 0x124 bugcheck, a processor error. It's not necessarily a physical CPU issue (RAM, motherboard, PSU, and BIOS are also possible), but given the error found in the event log, we can say it's probably either the CPU or motherboard. Run each of the three Prime95 tests: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

It's up to you, you might skip the Prime95 and move directly to the RMA. Even if Prime95 comes up clean, I won't be convinced that neither component is the cause.

Great advice, I have tried running Prima95 but only the first test nothing showed up after 14 hours but given that each test takes so long I think I will just go ahead and return it instead of running more/longer tests. Really appreciate the help in narrowing down the possible causes, thought for sure it was the graphics card after the Prima95 and memtest86 tests turned up with no errors. This has been a big headache but great learning experience.

All the best,
Robert

What is the make and model of your power supply? There's a small chance that bad/insufficient power is causing the problem.

FYI - no need to run the Prime95 tests for too long. The test will run indefinitely, but typically, we see results within 15-30 minutes. I said 2 hours in the Prime95 guide just to play things safe.

The power supply is Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 600 Watt 80 Plus Certified. (CMPSU-600CXV2)

Good to know I heard from other sites that Prima95 should be run all night. I'll give the other two tests a quick go then.

Thanks

Just ran the second and third Prima95 tests for over 30 minutes each and got no errors. I also ran Driver Varifier and it caused a memory dump, I was told that might indicate why it's crashing. Here's the mini dump file it created in case that tells you anything.

I don't *think* this can explain those hardware errors, but I could be wrong and it's worth addressing anyway. The crash dump pointed to gdrv.sys, a driver for Gigabyte EasySaver. That program has been known to cause crashes before, so definitely uninstall it and see what happens.

Uninstalltion didn't fix the problem unfortinatly looks like I will have to go the RMA route after all. Thanks a lot for the help.
