Windows 7: BSOD playing any game, error 0x000000F4

BSOD playing any game, error 0x000000F4

I just put together a new gaming rig I built entirely from scratch and after installing all the latest drivers for the whole system, testing each of my components individually (memtest/chkdsk), re-seating most if not all of them, AND monitoring my temps at the time of the bluescreen (which are well within normal ranges) I just cant seem to fix this blue screen. It does it about one minute into any high end game (BF3,FC3,AC3) and it will do it if im running strenuous GPU tests.

After debugging the dumps I discovered they all are caused by the exact same thing... csrss.exe which turn out to be part of the operating system. I have updated windows completely and I dont know what to do next. I am grateful for any help you can give. Thank you!

System Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (LGA 2011)

GPU: EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 660 3GB

HDD: Western Digital WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM

PSU: Rosewill Xtreme Series RX850-S-B 850W

MB: ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

OS: Windows 7 Professional x64


I have attached my SF Diagnostic Tool "Grab All" to this post.

P.S. All I want to do is finally game on this PC I specifically built to game on.

Let's see, specifically GPU tests crashing as well as GPU-based applications (games)? Doesn't sound like you need to figure it out any further that it's the video card bugging out. That's what I'm speculating on right now, but if you want more data to run on, we can work on that.

Can you turn on Driver Verifier and let it crash a few more times and send us the minidumps? Thanks.

There is a collection of mini dumps in a file attached to my original post. (near the bottom)

I get this message right before it bluescreens when running GPU stress tests:

And is there anyway to test out my GPU or any way to fix this? Is it the hardware or software?



P.S. I have also attached my recent Minidumps to this post.

Actually, I may need to take that back on the GPU thing, though it may still be involved. I'm thinking it's either a bad hard drive or a bad drive controller on the mobo. All your crashdumps show that the underlying issue was that data from the drive could not be placed onto RAM because during the I/O operation the drive suddenly disappeared, most likely due to the drive no longer responding or an erroneous communication on the part of the controller.

You said you tested the drive before. What did you use to test it? Can you provide us a snapshot of CrystalDiskInfo's posted SMART data? Regardless, I really think you should consider RMAing that drive.
