Random F4 bsods on newly built pc

So ever since I have built my new computer I have been getting this f4 bsod and I have no clue whats causing it. I have done the steps listed below but I still get it.

PC Specs:
Intel I7 4790k
GTX 970 ssc
MSI Z97S Krait Edition motherboard
Corsair vengeance 16gb ram
Samsung 850 evo 250gb ssd
WD blue 1tb hd

What I have done:
Updated all drivers
Checked ssd driver and it is fully up to date
Ran memtest 86 on ram and got no failures
Ran windows memory diagnostics and got no errors
Ran check disk on both ssd and hdd and got no errors
Changed sata cables on both my ssd and hdd
Ran driver verifier
Ran malwarebytes to check for malware and viruses

I have attached the zipped folder from dm log collector and the minidumps of the f4 bsods.

Something is crashing both winint and csrss processes on the system. Given they both have very different purposes in life, the likelihood is you have a driver that's causing issues if the hardware tests out OK. Unfortunately with minidumps, there's little information available (in this case it's an access denied/access violation, as far as can be told, but nothing further) to use to troubleshoot. In the case of an F4, we'd need a kernel dump to gather what's going on with any level of certainty. However, I'd start with upgrading all of the drivers in the system (which you've said you've already done), making sure the machine is fully patched, and then configure the machine for a kernel memory dump (not a minidump). Note you'll need a paging file that's approximately 4GB in size on the Windows volume to make sure you can capture a kernel dump the next time a crash occurs.

Thanks for the reply, my system was apparently already setup for a kernel memory dump and it is located in the windows folder. How would I upload it to here? Its like 769mb.

You'd be best served zipping it up to your desktop first, then uploading it to your OneDrive, DropBox, Google Drive, etc. account. Short of that, a public file sharing site would also work. Once you've uploaded the .zipped file, share the link.

Looks like something has reported that a device does not exist - and then a second fault has the same error, which ends up bugchecking the machine. Let's see what the dump says:

Not sure if the WD played a part in this (it would appear they're both on the ATA bus in your system), but the boot drive going unavailable would make sense. I'd start by running chkdsk /r against both of your drives, making sure the 850's firmware is totally up-to-date, and that neither are throwing SMART errors. Failing that, I'd remove the WD blue drive (as it's known to cause freezes and crashes if it locks up) to make sure the SSD is indeed the culprit. If so, however, you probably want to swap that out for a functional drive.

Not sure if the WD played a part in this (it would appear they're both on the ATA bus in your system), but the boot drive going unavailable would make sense. I'd start by running chkdsk /r against both of your drives, making sure the 850's firmware is totally up-to-date, and that neither are throwing SMART errors. Failing that, I'd remove the WD blue drive (as it's known to cause freezes and crashes if it locks up) to make sure the SSD is indeed the culprit. If so, however, you probably want to swap that out for a functional drive.
Thanks for analyzing the error. I ran ckdsk /r on both drives and no errors came up, I also used WD digital data life guard to do an advanced scan the drive for errors and no errors came up. I also checked the smart status of both drives and it is all ok. I also checked my ssd's firmware to make sure that it is indeed up to date. I'm thinking it's the WD drive that might be causing the problems. Should I contact WD for a rma or should I just take out the drive and see if the bsods occur again. How would I be able to take out the WD drive if basically all my programs and games are on it. Will windows throw any errors if I take it out?

Windows will, indeed, complain about it if anything from the OS is on there, any startup items, etc. I'd suggest making a backup of your installation that you can restore after testing, and just unplug the drive after you've got a good backup. You probably want to use another (external) drive for the backup, if possible, for obvious reasons .
