On the main Page where it says PCI-E 3.0 X16 @ X1 1.1, click the question mark next to it. It will open a rendering window and see if the X1 1.1 changes. It often does.

It looks better, but it still should be X16 @ 3.0 instead of 2.0, but I really don't know if it makes a difference.

Other than that, it's the only thing I see that looks out of line. Britton30 is more familiar with AMD systems, so he may see something in CPUz I didn't. But, when you get a chance Please get me the voltages and temps from BIOS. When you first started it up after building it, did you set bios to optimized defaults? And I noticed a couple of things in your bios that should be changed, but nothing that has anything to do with this. WHEA errors can be caused by several things. But, in overclocking it is usually you need more voltage.

I know it's early morning where you are, but it's 2 AM where I am. Well past my bed time. Let me think about this after some sleep, and I'll write back in a couple of hours and I have a couple of things we can try, but I'd like Britton30 to look at this first. Don't do it yet, but take a look at this and see if you think it could help Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose

Also, please be sure to let me know about the optimized defaults and the voltages and temps in BIOS. There usually is a Monitoring section in bios which will tell you those things. BIOS is the most accurate for voltages and temps. Most everything else is software readings and are notoriously inaccurate to some degree.

Look I am not so well informed as the others but it seems from what I have Googled it is a temp related issue and I am thinking if this still happens when the standard frequency settings are put in that it may even be a bad CPU or GPU to start with?? (temp sensors not working as should be)

Thanks for all your help so far, much appreciated. the voltage and temps from my bios "pc health section" are in the .zip in my above post hope thats the info you need. i've set to optimized in bios. would appreciate it if you could tell me those settings that need changing in the bios.

thanks

i have looked at the link you have gave me and it could be helpfull. i've ran furmark already with no issues but i could try running it longer, say 4 hours this time? to see if i can replicate the bsod. have the gpu-z log file all ready and waiting anyways. would the log work within games? or does it just work with the benchmark software

It will work with anything. As soon as you start the log, I want you to play a game or anything else that makes you BSOD as fast as possible. As soon as it gets booted again, open GPUz and uncheck the log to file box. The log will be quite long, so turn it off as quick as possible. I also want you to BSOD as quick as possible. So, do whatever makes you BSOD fast.

I see two thing which may not help the BSOD but should be changed.

The HT Link Frequency should be set as close to 2000MHz as possible, yours is 2200MHz. If it goes a bit below, that's OK. You may have to adjust the CPU Host Clock control a bit.

Your On Chip SATA type should be AHCI instead of Native IDE.
