Ive re-installed windows
Updated all the drivers
Reseated GPU, RAM.
Checked if everythings connected correctly on mobo
Checked temps they seem fine

Everytime it crashes it needs a force shutdown
Sometimes it freezes on blue screen sometimes it gets past it and shuts down automatically.
And sometimes it just freezes.

Here are the screens ive been able to get so far.





Help is much apreciated.

Since you have already re-installed windows at least once, one more time won't hurt. Try one of these tactics:

1) Do a fresh install using the SSD instructions in this tutorial. It will help you avoid ptfalls.

2) You might try (temporarliy) not connecting the SSD and just install Windows to the HDD like a regular setup. Run that way for awhile to see if the situation is related to the SSD or its installation.

i havent downloaded my motherboards SATA RAID/ AHCI/ SATA2 drivers or LAN drivers as ive already download the killer2100 drivers for my card, Could this be causing it ?
 
Try installing Windows to a regular HDD to see if it will run. If it does run like that then you probably do need to update the firmware on your SSD. If not then you might have a bigger problem on your hands. A common reason for blue screens like that is bad RAM.

The errors seem random.

Most likely your motherboard is toast (or the RAM). Try with only one RAM stick, then the other, if nothing changes than RMA the mobo.

the seller is sending me the old gtx 460 which he was using in the computer originally.

he changed it to a 480 and sold it to me.

do you think the current GPU might be faulty?

Im a veteran tech of 20 twenty years. Those errors are definitely what the others are saying its either the memory or motherboard. im leaning towards mobo. run each memory through memtest again but let it do at least 5 passes each stick. one pass sometimes does not find errors

Was the SSD disconnected? If not then disconnect it and retry.

right cant refund.

yes SSD was disconnected, i dont think its the SSD or HDD or RAM.

Do you think it has anything to do with a cheap powerlead, extention lead and monitor i found in my garage?

The previous owner just told me that my rig with a 600 PSU needed 617 PSU with the 480 GTX, and hes sending me a less powerful GPU.

Do you think this was the problem?
