The crashes are completely random.
The computer does not appear to be under any significant strain.
Two have occurred thus far.
Attached are requested files.
Thank you.

Please enable driver verifier and allow it to crash your system, once it has crashed disable driver verifier and post back here with your new files the same way you posted the first time.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Tip: If you can not boot normally after enabling driver verifier boot into safe mode and then disabling driver verifier.

Code:
BugCheck 1E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff800030e334b, 0, ffffffffffffffff}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!SwapContext_PatchXRstor+c7 )
Code:
Usual causes:  Device driver, hardware, System service, compatibility, Remote control programs, memory, BIOS
Code:
5: kd> !error ffffffffc0000005
Error code: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 (3221225477) - The instruction at 0x%08lx referenced memory at 0x%08lx. The memory could not be %s.
Memory:Run Memtest86+ for least 9-10 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.

Additional Tests:Post a screenshot of Crystal Disk Info summary: Make sure you have the latest firmware for SSD, and ensure all the SATA and Power cables are connected to the drive.

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

Code:
chkdsk C: /f /r
Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

My computer freezes at best thus far, no dumpfiles

@x BlueRobot
I have not yet tested my memory.
Question, in the link you posted (RAM - Test with Memtest86+) it states that each individual stick be tested if there are errors found, should I test each stick regardless if errors are found?

Thank you both in advance.

You may test all the sticks together, however, personally I would do the sticks individually, since if errors are found, then you can begin to concentrate on a particular stick right way.

I plan to use Crystal Disk Info for my SSD, because I cannot find it on the manufacturers website.
My SSD is partitioned, is this going to be a problem? I should run it for both partitions, correct?

I might not quite clear on how to use Crystal Disk Info, but from what I have gathered I plan to run 9 tests at a size of 4000 MB on both my drives, on the SSD.

Crystal Disk Info isn't a test as such, but a monitoring program which will gather information about your S.M.A.R.T data from your hard-drive, here's a explanation:Please post a screenshot of the output from Crystal Disk Info. It won't be a problem if your SSD is partitioned.

  • Disk check:
    • no errors.
  • Hard-drive diagnostics:
    • Used Crystal Disk Info for SSD,two pictures attached.
    • Used Hitachi WinDFT for HDD, no errors.
  • Memtest86+:
    • In the process of completing the sticks individually.
    • As a whole, 10 passes, no errors.
      • On a side note, 10 passes took almost 20 hours -- I take it, more RAM means more time
Now, I am unsure if this should be posted in a separate thread, please advise accordingly, but I incurred another BSOD while browsing. Requested files have been attached.

You don't need to test the RAM if no errors were found, and your HDD and file system seem to be fine.
