Address : 0x00003800030e4b85
Misc. : 0x000000000003ffff
The error above and info from the stack says that the Kernel timedout waiting for the Internal Timer of Processor 0 at Bank 3 to complete its work.... Now this could very well be the processor or the BIOS or the motherboard. Could also be caused due to overheating or overclocking as well.

The first think you need to do is to rule our the BIOS..

Your Bios version 0401 which is the first BIOS revision... Asus has already released quite a number of revision( 7 revisions with lots of fixes) after this.. The latest being Version 3903 . Please update it.

You need to let us know what the temperatures are... please run speedfan and post a snapshot here.

Do these first and check for BSOD.... and then we move on to the next step.
Ok, but how do you update the BIOS?

Well you have an option to let speed fan automatically control the fans.. Once you set it ... It will do its work

Well I will wait for your feedback after the BIOS update
