Hello zeeqreco, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, and post back with the needed information. One of our BSOD experts should be by afterwards to further help. :)

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
Dont run any sort of disc clenup program before you upload another zip.

Anyway, we are seeing stop 0x116 and stop 0x9C from other data; and some storage controller failure.

Install Service pack 1 and all other windows updates. Otherwise the system will remain vulnerable to threats.

Let us know the wattage of the PSU, too.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Do some Disc checks.

This BSOD is another stop 0x116. So another display failure. And what we have till now .....
  1. Furmark passed.
  2. System is cool enough.
  3. Power supply is sufficient.
  4. Display driver is the latest.
So, on which display may fail? Only one thing about the system that may be said at this time, that is the display driver. Lately we have noticed that teh newer versions of the display driver is causing some issues in some systems. In that situation we should try a known good earlier version.

Yes, dirty cards can make it unstable. If there is dust allocation inside the computer, dismantle it. Clean everything inside, but very carefully. Clean the air vents and fan grills so that it can blow the hot air out easily.

While re-seating, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.

Also change the SATA cables etc.

Does it make the situation any better?

So you havent done it?

The BSODs will continue to occur in this case.

Yes, you may use air to clean the dust, but not a vacuum cleaner.
