Windows 7: BSOD & setup failure

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD & setup failure

Hi-- I rebuilt my new pc beginning this year and I OCed cpu and gpu a bit.
I went to a trip and left my PC running for a week. after I came back, I encountered some BSODs, i thought was the stability issue of OC at the beginning.
However, after i reset the BIOS the problem was still there and screen started showing some fuzzy lines somehow.., then i thought it was the system issue.

I installed win7*64 ultimate on a 128G SSD. at the moment i didn't have much things on the system drive, except some games, so i formatted it and tried to do a complete setup. After I formatted the hd with the setup disc I couldn't install system anymore, an error message pops up when expending files.

Then I thought it may be the motherboard problem, I replaced the mobo yesterday however the problem is still there. I couldn't install system on both hd now..

Please help, can the problem be my video card or PSU?
