Stop Error 0xF4 - CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION

First time I've ever got this BSOD. It happened while I was exporting something out of Adobe After Effects and watching an episode of Star Trek in VLC player.

My system isn't overclocked in any regard. As far as I know I have the latest drivers for everything in my computer.

Attached all the necessary information.

0XF4's are often associated with disk errors. There are indications of IO errors in the .dmp file, so lets start by checking your Samsung 1TB using the DOS version of SeaTools (run the SHORT test only):

Now check that you have the latest firmware for the OCZ and INTEL SSD's.

HDD came back with no errors.

Updated OCZ firmware, Intel SSD already has latest firmware.

OK. Please do this:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

Interesting...that means the likelihood of a driver causing the BSOD is low. Monitor for further BSOD'S.

Shall I disable DV or leave it going?

If it has been running > 24hrs without a BSOD, disable it.
