Thank for the update .

All of the new dumps are the same (0x7F, arg1=8 double fault), a mini dump in this case is little help.

Please uninstall intel rapid storage technology.

  4. Expand "Disc Drives" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all items under "Disc Drives"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate system driver, msahci.sys.

Uninstalling IRST will be needed there. We need to see the situation at system native storage drivers.

And, Driver Verifier is no more needed, you may disable it now.

At the same time, make it sure that the OCZ-VERTEX PLUS R2 SSD is running with the up-to-date firmware. Check for it at OCZ Toolbox: Firmware & BIOS Updates
An update is there, Version 3.55.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Update your BIOS to version F3d dated 2012/11/21 from GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z77N-WIFI (rev. 1.0) . You may try @BIOS (available under utilities) to update the BIOS easily.

Do one more thing. Make it sure that all the components of the computer is placed properly.

Yes, do it. Itis in AHCI mode, so the uninstallation will result into installation of the system native storage controller msahci.sys at the restart.

If you are sure that nothing is overclocked, dont change any machine settings.

Let us know how it is running, after all the suggestions are taken

Addanator and my friend YoYo155, the process of uninstalling IRST quoted from my post is not supposed to give the expected result. The actual way to do it is the following:
Quote:
Get rid of intel rapid storage. First uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
I posted that earlier method in my early time of debugging, when I lacked knowledge and experience. Yoyo155, if you want to can it, can this one that I just posted.
