BSOD Randomly

Hello,
I just built a new system a month ago for video and photo editing and have been getting BSOD randomly. Here are the hardware specs for the system.

Intel i7-3770k
Asrock z77 Extreme 4 mobo
4x 8gb gskill ripjaws 1600mhz
kingston hyperX 120gb SSD
WD Black 1TB 7200rpm HD
Thermaltake Toughpower XT 575w PSU
Coolermaster StormTrooper Case

So, lets start from the beginning. I recieved all the parts for the system from new egg and put the pc together. I started the system without connecting any of the harddrives first. The system posted fine and everything looked ok in the bios. I shut the system down and installed the SSD. I booted into bios and the harddrive was reconized and everything looked good (memory-reconized, cpu-40c, etc.).
I installed a fresh copy of windows 7 ultimate with no problems. I then restarted and installed Mobo Drivers. I made sure the system was running fine for a day and then installed adobe premiere cs6. Everything worked fine for a day or two after this until i started getting BSOD x000124 randomly. It seems the system will run for anywhere between 10min and 2 hours until eventually BSOD. I thought it was a problem with the drivers, so I downloaded the newest drivers from ASrock and from Intel and started installing new drivers. I was still getting the same BSOD randomly. So, I installed windows on the other HD and got the exact same results a few days later. I have tried updating my bios to a newer version. I have checked my memory with memtest and there seem to be no errors. I have tried several different memory configs(1 stick, 2sticks, 4sticks). I have reinstalled windows multiple times and actually used a different version(win7pro64) once and got the same result. I dont know what to do at this point!!! I feel like I have exhausted all of the possibilities of getting this system to work on a regular basis. ANY help would be much appreciated. Thank you

Is your cpu overclocked?

Because if it is you need to increase voltage.

No, it is not OCed



Then you need to go into the bios and make sure all cpu settings are correct.

Sometimes motherboards use incorrect settings, especially for ram.


Did you install windows in ahci mode on the ssd? Did you set that option in the bios?

yea, I installed the windows with the SSD set to ahci mode in the bios. I also tried installing windows on a 7200rpm WD black HD. I have reinstalled windows about 8 or 9 times now. Everything looked right in the bios as far as i can tell.

I think it must be either the Motherboard or the Processor. Is there any way I could test either of these to see? Im probably over the limit on being able to return them by now.
