V my 2 cents worth mate try this it may turn out to be a a non event but while reseating stuff is good I always clean as well see this

SLOTCLEANING

Now as for the slots to clean them use astrip of old credit card about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold apiece of thin lint free cloth over the end dab on some form of alcohol - isopropyl alcohol (what we swab the skin with before an injection) is good and GENTLY swipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s.

I'll try that as soon as I get my hands on some isopropyl, tho the PC is about 6 months old, everything still shines like new, barely any dust on the components. Tried moving the video card on another PCIE slot but couldn't fit it since the card is too tick and hits the bottom of the case.
Tried lowering the clocks a little again for the GPU and 5 mins later I got a IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_EQUAL BSOD, so now I lowered them down to AMD stock clocks and see how it goes. If I won't get any crash anymore means the card is faulty and will have to RMA it.

That's the decision.

Ok mate no need to clean then any alcohol will do I often use the methylated sort as well but if the thing is bad then do as you are going to do.

It's been a week now with stock AMD clocks on my GPU and no BSOD of any kind whatsoever. Left the PC idle everytime I got out and once overnight trying to trigger the BSODs that plagued me but couldn't get to crash it again.
So it seems the GPU factory OC was causing them, I'm gonna return it as soon as I get a replacement since you never know if it's gonna fail with standard clocks too.
This was quite a journey to pinpoint the culprit, maybe Microsoft needs to improve the exception handling in the core a lil bit more and try to get more details about what went wrong in the future.
A big thanks for everyone who helped me, much appreciated. Hopefully I won't see you again.

As soon as possible That will be the best. Because, it is supposed that the factory OC should be able to carry the OC.

It's been a while but I thought this is important to mention in case someone else have similar issues.

So in the past I've been plagued with random BSODs, a small minority of them being due to a faulty GPU which I replaced in the meantime. The BSODs due to the faulty GPU were easily reproduced and had an exact error code but the rest of the BSODs were unexplained for.

After months of searching, debugging and trying literally anything I thought about, even started slowly replacing every part of the PC, I finally found the culprit.
Apparently some AsRock motherboards do not get well with Windows if you have enabled SATA Agressive Link Power Management in your BIOS. Just searching on Google for both, rends hundreds of results with people having the same issues with the same motherboard, and the same solution.

So if you are experiencing unexplained and random BSODs it's worth trying to disable the feature in your BIOS and see how it goes.
