BSOD Shortly After Began Using New Build

Greetings,

Thanks for being here. I've learned a lot even before this post.

I built this system about a month ago. Started having blue screens during the Windows Update process. They continue to occur fairly frequently often while the computer is just sitting. Here's the file data. I'm about to update my Mobo drivers. AFAIK I've got the most current Invidia driver and all Windows updates have been downloaded and installed. Most current version of NIS is also installed. The SSD firmware has not been updated. I use Ccleaner to remove registry problems.

Thanks for the help.

The system fails to record BSOD dumps.
Code:
Event[25457]:
  Log Name: System
  Source: volmgr
  Date: 2013-09-25T10:48:22.869
  Event ID: 46
  Task: N/A
  Level: Error
  Opcode: N/A
  Keyword: Classic
  User: N/A
  User Name: N/A
  Computer: Build6
  Description: 
Crash dump initialization failed!
The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Sorry for the delay. I set up a dump file as you suggested, had a blue screen then couldn't find %SystemRoot% or %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP. When I googled the file for location it didn't help. Where can I find the file to send? Or can I specify a different location?

Did you by any chance disable the pagefile?

I restored the page file. Is there a specific size I should set it at? Also, is it important that the system restart immediately after a blue screen? I had it set to not so I could see the stop codes.

C:\Windows\Minidump ..... it is the root if you browse to it. But we need you tp post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

A dump can't be saved without a pagefile. Leave the size to Windows.

You had a pagefile when the BSODs started, right?

Yes. The first BSOD occurred during the windows update process before I got rid of the page file.

Page file was recreated.

Also, SSD firmware updated and BIOS flashed successfully to V9. I tried to update my MB drivers from the Gigabyte website with varying degrees of success.

Here's the data from the latest BSOD which occurred after the above changes. It occurred while surfing the internet.
