    I've read some other reports that this is related to an Anti Virus conflict.
    If you are running any AV, you may want to temporarily disable it to see if that's causing the issue.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    Your BIOS dates from 2009. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

    We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:
    There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

    Here's some suggestions:
    - Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
    - Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
    - Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
    - Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
    ....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
    - Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
    06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
    05 Jan 2013 - very interesting post about difficulties with the Marvell controllers even when not connected to the SSD drives:
    27 Feb 2013 - I'm starting to see much better reliability with SSD's using current (mid-2012 and later) storage drivers. I have withdrawn my objections to using these devices in everyday systems.
    The single memory dump blames your Outpost firewall. As you have un-installed/re-installed it, we have to suspect that it's either an incompatibility of another program with the firewall - or that there is another, internet-aware program having problems that crashes the firewall.

    You have the 2005 version of ASACPI.sys (the Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver). This is a known BSOD cause and it must be updated. You can find it in the Utilities section of the download page for your motherboard/system at Asus (it's called the ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit) ASUS - - ASUS Striker II Formula Run the installer in Compatibility mode for Win7

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    I see traces from Virus Buster and from Spyware Doctor. Are you running more than one anti-virus or one firewall (to include the WIndows Firewall)? If so, please stop as that my be causing your issues.
