Windows 7: Random BSOD on new Win 7 X64 PC - error 1e

Random BSOD on new Win 7 X64 PC - error 1e

I've recently built a new PC of which I've had to replace the motherboard already due to it being faulty. Since installing the new motherboard, re-installing all components and re-installing Win 7 on my SSD, I've been getting random BSOD's 1-2 times per day, bug check code 1e. My computer will not go in to sleep mode either without a BSOD - albeit a different bug check code: 0a. I had no such problems on my old board leading me to believe it is a motherboard issue, albeit I'm trying to verify this in order to be able to RMA it if needed.

PC Specs:
All running at stock settings
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Intel i7 2600k 3.4Ghz (1155)
Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 (F10)
Corsair Sport 4x4GB (16GB) DDR3 RAM
ZOTAC nVidia GeForce 560 GTX
On board sound
OS hard drive: Crucial M4 256GB
2nd, 3rd drives: WD 500GB WD5000AAKS-00YGA0
4th drive: SAMSUNG HD204UI 2TB

The BSOD just happens randomly for no apparent reason. There is nothing in event viewer indicating what the problem could be.

Any help would be appreciated.

Having followed the driver verifier tutorial, I seem to have the caught the culprit of my BSOD's, gdrv.sys. This is a driver for Gigabyte's Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced program. I've un-installed the program and it's removed gdrv.sys.

Hopefully, the BSOD's will now stop.

I didn't have Energy Saver installed and uninstalled EasyTune but it didn't delete the driver. Everytime I deleted or renamed it, it came back. Finally I used ServiWin to disable the driver loading at startup and no BSODs after a couple days. Hopefully my woes are over.
