First, sort-out problems first before "tweaking" the BIOS. I assume the HD 5670 has its' PCIe lead connect to/from the PSU.

1. Clear CMOS {refer to page 1.9 ; p 28}; REPLACE the Jumper to positions 1|2 when cleared.
2. BIOS {Load Defaults} ; for now
3. Windows -> run MSCONFIG and select Diagnostic
3. Repeat whatever caused the BSOD

My initial thought is your RAM, and IF {2*geil} means that you did NOT purchase in a set of 2 then I'm even more so concerned about your RAM. In addition ganged vs unganged can cause issues; try both ways.

Q - What DIMM slots are the GEIL installed?

RAM {GEIL} verify you indeed have the Correct RAM
DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24
DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 {kit of 3}

so my geil mem are 2 identical ddr3 cl9-9-9-24
i have had one at beginning(BUNDLE DEAL FROM DABS) and bought another one to swap and eventually send back, but whichever i used i had bsod. maybe different but did not think it is memory issue. i will try follow your advice tomorrow, see what will happen and postr back

Try the Blue DIMM slots. {I wasn't certain if the HD 5670 needed extra power or not; HD 5770 does}
