Windows 7: New build BSOD 0x00000F4 and 0x00000A7

New build BSOD 0x00000F4 and 0x00000A7

Just yesterday I built a new build with some new parts and some old parts that I had in my old computer before. It all went well and good yesterday except for one of the RAM sticks which was faulty, 2 sticks of 4gb. Yesterday it was going fine except that I got 0x00000A7 twice about 5 minutes apart from each other. Battlefield 4 was working fine on 4gb of RAM except for a few fps drops here and there. Also that BSOD was only occurring when I was playing Battlefield 4. Today I went back and exchanged the RAM sticks and got 2 new ones, these are both now in and working fine at 1600mhz. But now I get some stuttering in BF4 occasionally and after about 5 minutes of playing it just crashes, everything crashes, Skype says it stopped running because of a disk I/O error. Every other application has just closed down, I can't open anymore and eventually it just freezes and gives me 0x00000F4. While that was happening my RAM usage was only about 1.5GB. It doesn't give me any dump files, and also after that happens it runs a disk check on my SSD which has my OS on it and fixes corrupt files or whatever. My specs are:
Intel Core i7 4770 3.4Ghz
8GB Crucial GSkill DDR3 1833mhz RAM
Asus Z87-C motherboard
Gigabyte R9 290 Windforce 3X (from old computer)
Samsung 128GB evo pro SSD (from old computer, has Windows 7 64 bit on it)
Samsung 640GB hard drive (from old computer)
Also when I installed Windows I completely formatted my SSD. What could be the cause? (sorry if I forgot anything)
