Windows 7: Just upgraded my PC, getting BSOD and system freezes

Just upgraded my PC, getting BSOD and system freezes

Hey there, I just finished upgrading my PC

Parts that I added:

-CPU, AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor
-Ram, 2x 4gb
-Video Card, XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0
-Motherboard, ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

I kept my old Hitachi 1TB HDD and 700W PSU

I put the computer together today, re-installed Windows 7 because of trouble booting the OS and it would constantly crash on Starting Up Windows with a 0x7b error. The re-installation fixed the problem and everything ran fine until while playing League of Legends my computer froze and would not respond, this happened 3 times in the following 2 hours-ish. I launched Crysis 3 to monitor my CPU and GPU temperatures to see if it was overheating, both hovered around 50-55 degrees Celsius constantly. Then I suddenly got a blue screen while playing with the error code 0x3b and a mention of win32k.sys on the error screen. If you could help me out that would be great, thank you for reading this.

Try update your bios to BIOS 1708
Though it says "Fix HDD(1TB up) read error under win XP of IDE mode" ... it would very well work here as well as there BSOD errors are very well memory related or in this case cache/paging related..

Do these and let me know... and Oh when you are at it do update all the drivers.

I've been running through a bunch of drivers to update while watching streams online and I got another blue screen, this time 0xD1, I included the minidump file in this post. I have yet to update my BIOS, going to do so in a few hours once I have access to a flash drive. Thanks for the help.
