How is your pagefile configured?

Also, run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Is your BIOS up to date? What about the firmware for the SSD? Chipset drivers up to date? See the Quote for SSDs in post #2 by usasma.
Now that you say this i almost guaramntee it is linked to the page file. This all started after a guy at work said i should move it to my second drive so i set the size custom and clicked set onto my manual HDD but then had a bsod couple days after which i knew id experienced before. I then went back and clicked set back to the SSD allowing the computer to decide it all. I honestly have no idea how to properly set it as i've been told multiple things so here's a screeny and tell me what you think. Bios updated last night after the BSOD and will check the corsair forum for firmware updates

Check for any updates through the SSD drive's support site first. Then update anything that is not available there by going to your motherboard site. Do not install motherboard updates that are the same as updates through the SSD support as they may conflict. For your motherboard drivers:
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68XP-UD3P (rev. 1.0)
if you have rev 1.0;
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68XP-UD3P (rev. 1.3)
if you have rev 1.3.

As to the pagefile concerns: sometimes moving the pagefile results in very bad side effects that cannot be fixed without doing a Repair Install of Windows 7, so if updating all drivers, firmware, and BIOS versions does not help, you may have to go that route.

ok well i've set the page file to "allow system to automatically manage pagefile" hopefully i won't have any more problems. BIOS is updated, SSD firmware is updated, as to chipset updates how do i know what to download and what to leave :S do you recommend any driver scanning software or is that a no go?

I do not recommend driver scanning software unless it is from the driver manufacturer. The automated free tools that can be found online often provide driver updates for hardware that is not actually in the system being updated. These can cause instability.

As for which drivers to update, I would recommend that you update chipset drivers. The chipset drivers can be found on your motherboard site linked in my previous post for the proper revision version.
