Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.
If memtest finds no issue, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hi Arc,

I ran the memtest as you said for 9 passes and it cleared with no problems. After running verifier for ~12 hours, i attempted to open a file and received a BSOD attributed to aswSnx.sys. Attached is the SF diagnostic files. Thanks!

In that situation, you will need to uninstall Avast.

As you wish Windows 8, Windows Defender is supposed to be a real good protection there. Add MalwareBytes Anti Malware there, it will be an excellent protection.

This seems to be affecting a number of programs, is there any chance the operating system drivers themselves are faulty?

Sorry to butt in Archie, a few obsevations (i have not run your dumps just scanned the thread)

So many bluescreens on a vanilla install is never a good sign, this would make me consider two possibilities
1. there is faulty hardware causing the machine to throw
2. serious incompatabilities causing problems

if this were my machine i would either
run hardware tests on all components to test them (you have already done some) and then even possibly run machine with minimal hardware ie no gfx just onboard, 1 HDD if you are using more, 1 ram stick etc
or
install win 7 (which will run fine for 90 days without activation or longer if needed) and run some tests to see if stable?

this may give you a better idea of the root cause of your issues so can you can focus your actions slightly, if machine runs good on 7 then you may have driver/software based issues with 8.1 which wouldnt be suprising given the newness of it all. If 7 does work may give developers a chance to catch up/bug fix 8.1 issues

Anyway thats my tuppence worth i`ll leave you in archies more than capable hands

All the best

Thanks for your advice Pauly! i may have to try that, after attempting to update the OCZ agility firmware it just seems to get stuck on the firmware update screen and not update at all. Im stumped! done a fair bit of googling and cant find anyone with a similar issue. Atm its stuck on version 2.15. Any ideas?

Cheers

Microsoft Storage Space Controller aka spaceport.sys
This is a win 8 driver that we havent seen before, i think arc was asking if you knew anything about, ie it was related to a piece of software you installed or something but now we know it belongs to win 8 and is a critical system driver/service
Hes started a thread running on it now to see who knows what about it
