  1. Double check your power connections, and make sure the heatsink is properly seated and tight.
  2. +1
  3. Checked all the connections and it turns out it was the SATA cable connecting to the DVD drive which was not plugged in properly. The system now starts up and no BSOD!!! Thanks for the quick replies!!
