BSOD: Fresh Win7 install on new SSD / heatsink

Hello,

Just built a new computer:

- AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX
- ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
- SAPPHIRE 100355-1GOCL Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
- 2 x CORSAIR XMS 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M1A1333C9
- Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
- Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler

What happened:

I ordered and built my computer (everything expect the COOL MASTER heatsink / SSD). It ran flawlessly on my 1 TB HDD, played WOW perfectly, etc.

Decided I wanted an SSD / aftermarket heatsink. Installed both, reformatted with no problems, and then installed Wow. Shortly after playing, I BSOD'ed... over and over again. I was extremely careful with the thermal paste, didn't spill anything on the mobo.

I was primarily getting 007E and DXGMMS1 BSOD's. I did not update the firmware on my SSD, motherboard controllers, or set the AHCI settings in my bios. I plan on doing all of that when I get home.

Do you guys think that the cause is firmware / outdated drivers? I made sure to install all the latest drivers from the manufacturer's web site for my video card / motherboard.

Thanks,
Bryan

I went onto the Kingston website and there are no firmware downloads for the SSD I bought. I'm going to go ahead and install all my drivers and keep you posted. No bsod's yet.

UPDATE: After installing Catalyst 13.2 beta drivers and rebooting, I began getting a .Net framework error. I then proceeded to BSOD everytime I opened internet explorer. Uninstalled Catalyst and now stable.

I'm going to install all microsoft updates now. What drivers do you recommend for my graphics card?

After running smoothly for 2 days, the computer refused to boot up at all. No lights on the tower, mobo or power supply. I rma'ed most of the items back to newegg for replacement.
