Windows 7: BSOD at fresh installation win7 x64

BSOD at fresh installation win7 x64

Hy everybody.
I'm new here, I'm pretty desperate with my problem.
I bought new PC:

DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) Kingston, 1600MHz, CL9, HyperX Genesis, KHX1600
MSI GTX 670 2048MB GDDR5, N670GTX-PM2D2GD5/OC , Dual-Link DVI x2
Zalman Z11 Plus mid tower case. 260(W) x 498(H) x 525(D)mm
Procesor Intel Core i5-3450 3.1GHz,Socket 1155, box
MSI H77MA-G43, Socket : 1155,CPU : Sandy Bridge, Intel® H77
OCZ SSD Agility 3 60GB , MB 2.5" SATA III, Native TRIM support
XFX Core Edition 80+ 550W PSU - EasyRail technology
DVD - LG GH22NS, DVD±RW, 22x DVD±R ,8x DL , 40x CD-R

It came already assembled by shop where I bought it.
I also bought original Windows 7 64bit which I decided to install myself.
I puted win7 dvd in dvd-rom and started fresh win7 64bit installation. Everything went well, and PC restarted so it can continue the win7 installation. After pc restarted, it came up to ''eneter cd-key'' window and I had no time to enter it, pc showed me BSOD. After few tries, I've installed win7 (ne drivers, no programs, just fresh new installation) but BSOD continued showing. I've tried to install from another win7 dvd.. I tried to install all drivers (latest ones), but BSOD still presents. I've tested my SSD with HD TUNE PRO, but it show NO ERRORS. I've also tested both of my DDR3 memory sticks, and memtest86 shows NO ERRORS.

BSOD problem: 0x000000F4

''WHO CRASHED'' shows;

"This was probably caused by the following module: Unknown (0x00000000)
Bugcheck code: 0xF4 (0x3, 0xFFFFFA8007A872D0, 0xFFFFFA8007A875B0, 0xFFFFF80002F86DB0)

What am I to do? How to solve this problem? Is this software, driver or hardware problem???
Please, someone help me...

Is your BIOS up to date?

What about your SSD firmware?

Those are key for getting an SSD to work properly.

Additionally, reset your SSD hardware/software connection with the BIOS and clear any corruption on it: Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.
  1. Power off the system.
  2. Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
  4. Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
  5. Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
  6. Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
  7. Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
  8. Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
  9. Replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
  10. Repeat steps 1-4.
  11. Start your computer normally and run Windows.

The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.
