New Build - BSOD during installs

I recently started building a new system and have been getting BSOD while trying to run Windows Update to install all the updates. The dumps seem to mainly point to ntoskrnl.exe

I have run memtest86+ overnight without error.

I have uploaded the SF diagnostic tool output into this thread. Please let me know what other info you might need.

System specs:

Motherboard - MSI FM2-A75MA-E35
CPU - AMD A8-6600k APU 3.9GHZ
RAM - 2x4GB Patriot PC3-10600 1333MHz
Power Supply - ThermalLake TR 600w
Video Card - ASUS GeForce GTX 650 Ti
Network - Netgear N900 Wireless Dual Band VSB
HDD - 1 TB Toshiba DTOIACA SATA Disk

I had 5 BSOD in about an hour last night:

BAD_POOL_CALLER ntsokrnl.exe
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT ntsokrnl.exe

I have checked the SATA connections to HDD and reseated them and even tried an different SATA port. I have also reseated the memory DIMM cards.

The video driver is NVIDIA Graphics driver 320.49

I returned the Patriot RAM and got 2x4GB Kingston XMP Hyper X DDR3 1600MHz and haven't had an issue since.
