That's the second time the ASMedia USB 3.0 driver has come up. Do you have anything plugged into it? I would uninstall AI Suite then install a new version of the ASMedia driver. The USB 2.0 Drivers are in your Chipset drivers usually. If you have any questions, just ask.

As always thank you for your rapid reply. I probably won't get around to that till tonight or tomorrow morning, but I'll report back once I put it through the paces again.

Thanks again!

No problem at all. Just whenever you have time. It's not a problem.

Uninstalled AI suite then ran the cleaner in safe mode.
Uninstalled ASmedia 3.0 drivers and reinstalled.
Wife had keyboard plugged into a usb 3.0 slot, switched it to a 2.0.
Ran sfc /scannow. zero integrity violations.
I'm hopeful that we've fixed it. Going to have the waifu game this afternoon while the kidos sleep. Will update.

Everything was running flawlessly since I last posted till just now. I ran the Windows integrated Experience Index (not sure if this is a no no), to stress the systems a tad while monitoring temps. All temps were well within acceptable range (CPU didn't go over 41C and GPU didn't go over 58C). First time I ran it everything went well, but it came up with a really low score for the primary hard drive (Patriot pyro 120GB SSD). The score was 5.9/7.9. My similarly rated Corsair Force GT scores 7.9/7.9. So I ran the test again and the computer froze w/ no BSOD. Stayed frozen for over an hour before I forced the reboot. I suppose this isn't the ideal stress test (don't know what windows is testing at time of failure). I ran prime95 on the system for about an hour w/ zero faults and CPU temps stable (under 50C). My apologies if this is getting monotonous, and I really appreciate all your help and guidance so far. I have really learned a great deal and it's been fun. Any other tools you recommend to maybe narrow down what's causing the freeze? Like GPU or HDD/SDD stress testers?

I suspect it froze on the SSD. Make sure your firmware is up to date on the SSD. It is not the fastest SSD, but should score much higher than it did. Try running AS SSD( Download AS SSD Benchmark - MajorGeeks) and ATTO benchmarks. (Download ATTO Disk Benchmark - MajorGeeks) make sure you are selecting the benchmark and not an add (sometimes it is hard to tell) and watch out for the add ons they try to install with it. Just uncheck the add ons and they won't install.

Well I'm confident that the BSODs are gone. A few days now with zero BSODs or freezes!! You have been awesome, I really appreciate all the time you spent helping me troubleshoot. I've gone ahead and marked this as resolved.

BSOD seemingly at random
I started having BSOD issues with this PC some months back, when I was using an ATI card that was a bit behind the times. I thought it was a faulty graphics card causing it, so I swapped it out with a spare I had and that seemed to fix the issue - no more BSOD boot loops. I recently (just before...

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...

Then after the new SimCity shipped, I started getting them about 20...

Hi there, I've got a problem that I just can't seem to fix, so I figured it was time to ask for help. I've recently replaced my HD, RAM, and motherboard and when I play World of Warcraft, randomly the screen will lock up and eventually lead me to a BSOD. I believe I've updated all of the drivers,...
