Windows 7: BSOD f4, 7a, and 116

BSOD f4, 7a, and 116

For the last few weeks, I have been BSODing when playing several games (Arkham Knight and Endless Legend mainly, rarely in World of Warships).

Originally, I was getting the f4 and 7a error codes, so I did some looking and read that it could be a few things. I ran memtest, which reported no errors. Dskchk found a few problems on the storage partition of my WD 2TB , but nothing major. Just to be sure, I deleted Arkham Knight, and re-downloaded it onto my 750GB WD. This temporarily resolved the issue, but 5 or so hours later, I started getting BSODs again.

I then ran the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic. The storage partition on the 2TB passed both the quick and the full test. My windows partition (also on the 2TB) passed the full test, but failed a few seconds into the quick test.

I then installed a new 250 GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD, cloned my C: drive, and am using that as my boot. I no longer get any f4 or 7a errors, but where I would get them before, my computer just reboots without warning and comes back with a 116 error. Additionally, both of my older hard drives will constantly disappear, especially while playing a more demanding game. If I scan for hardware changes in Device Manager, the 2TB and sometimes the 750GB will reconnect.

My system is :
Intel i5-4670 3.4GHz
Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3 motherboard
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB
Samsung 850 Evo 250GB SSD
WD 2TB HDD (WD2002FAEX-007BA0)
WD 750GB

I included the file from the DM Log collector, but please let me know if I need to add any other files.

Anyone have any ideas? Is there more info I need to provide? I have no clue what I should do to try and fix these issues.
