Windows 7: Persisten BSOD on a new RIG

dont have a spare PSU lying around... but im thinking of buying a PSU tester to troubleshoot the PSU, its cheap enough and good to have around i guess. PSU is barely 3 weeks old so if its faulty means my retailer sold me a bad one, 7 years warranty though

my experience of cold boot issues have always led me to bad PSU or badly seated/connected devices and or ram

have you tried using sleep then windows boots as resume ?

just tried sleep and hibernate mode, no issues, booted back up normally.
really hope it isnt hardware, all new barely even a month old.
is there a way to test my graphic card hardware?
i tested ram/harddisk with no errors, getting a PSU tester when the online order goes through, so whats left is the graphic card.

such a pain to test everything, wished i gotten a dell instead =x

If it was me I would pull the machine apart again possibly even lift the motherboard then rebuild carefully being 110% sure everything seats well :)
