    Random BSOD's

    Hi All,

    I've been getting random BSOD's - sometimes while gaming, sometimes while running windows update. It's not the same file everytime. There is a lot of them as well.. 34 since I reinstalled the OS. I am not doing any overclocking.

    I attempted to use WhoCrashed to read the dump logs and it wasn't able to make any suggestions.
    "34 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Only 10 are included in this report. No offending third party drivers have been found. Connsider using WhoCrashed Professional which offers more detailed analysis using symbol resolution. Also configuring your system to produce a full memory dump may help you"

    I tried to used WinDBG as well with little success.

    This has been happening since I build the PC. I also did a complete reinstall of 8.1 X64 and the issue still continued.

    I have tried to troubleshoot myself but due to the randomize of the BSOD's it has been difficult.

    From log tool:

    Here are the last 10 crashes if this helps:
    ntoskrnl.exe - APC_INDEX_MISMATCH
    ntkrnlmp.exe - APC_INDEX_MISMATCH
    ntoskrnl.exe - DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

    Operating system: Windows 8.1 X64

    In attempt to rule out hardware I ran a CPU stress test and watched temps - never got above 77 and no BSOD.

    Ran MEMTEST86 for 3 hours - no error all pass.

    Ran CrystalDiskInfo got PASS for both HD's.

    Just had another one when running windows update - it seems to happen pretty often when I run windows update.

    This was a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe

    I uploaded the mini and full dump here:
