Windows 7: BSOD/Reboots on new machine

BSOD/Reboots on new machine

First off, this is my first computer build, so I didn't expect it to go so smoothly. I'm getting seemingly random BSODs. Sometimes it's when installing a new device, sometimes its when trying to reboot normally, sometimes it's when I'm downloading files. No real common denominator.

Just assembled yesterday.
OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM System Builders
CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz Motherboard ASUS P8Z68-V Memory 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600mhz Graphics Card(s) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Hard DriveSSD OCZ Agility 3Samsung Blu-Ray disk driveWestern Digital MyBook 1tb
Medialink wireless adaptor

Thanks so much for any help!

Both available crashdumps in the JCGriff report show an I/O error occurred during a paging attempt (data moving between RAM and disk). It's best to start battering your system with hardware tests using those that follow. Given that this is related to disk and RAM, you will want to work on those first before attempting the others:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Large FFTs; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all or the advanced ones.

All of these (excluding MemtestG80/CL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load.
