BSOD appears often on various times

Windows 7 Ultimate - x64
Not the original installed OS on the system
Full retail version
What is the age of system (hardware)? A few days.
What is the age of OS installation? A few days.

So I have been upgrading my computer with new parts (motherboard, cpu, psu, gpu, memory) and having some problems with the stability. The HDD is about a year old.

Check my profile for full info about my hardware.

Would be very grateful if anyone could help me out with this one :)

It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.
The above quote was taken from, which is linked to in usasma's thread about this error. Closely follow the first three posts of usasma's thread outlining STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting and proceed through each step. Let us know if you need further help.

The above driver can cause problems on some systems. This driver is usually part of AMD Overdrive; also in EasyTune6 for Gigabyte motherboard; also in AMD Vision Engine Control Center. Remove the appropriate software.
