    Getting random BSODs in Windows 8.1. Fresh install.

    I did a fresh install hoping that it would get rid of my BSODs which were numerous. So far, I only have 5 BSODs that I have had the patience to allow Windows to get to 100% on. I easily BSOD once a day, most are with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

    I have run memtest86+ ad nauseum with no errors, as well as Prime 95 for over 24 hours, I am stable and these are not temperature errors (30c idle, 71c at load).

    Please find attached my dump files and driver list as required by the forum rules.

    I appreciate all your help as these BSODs are driving me crazy.

    Please uninstall the driver from "Programs and features" first. If not listed there, uninstall via device manager with "Delete driver" option selected.
