    Make sure that you've run the hard drive tests that I asked for. There are some disk controller errors in Event Viewer. Link to HDD diags: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure Disk controller errors aren't definitedly hardware - so the diagnostics are called for in order to rule it out.

    No more memory dumps in the uploaded reports - but plenty of Event ID 41 errors in Event Viewer (Windows doesn't know why it shut down). These symptoms are usually related to hardware problems - so we're still looking at the video card/hard drives

    MSI Afterburner (along with Riva Tuner and EVGA Precision) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys). Please un-install it immediately!

    If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

    I ran a bootable copy of Driver Fitness Test already and it passed the test. I'll run it again anyways.
    Also, I recieve system crashes with or without MSI Afterburner but I re-stalled it because I noticed that the factory defaults had it slightly over-clocked, so I wanted to change them to it real default but it didn't help.

    Since you passed the hard drive test - that leaves the video card.
    Good luck!

    I'm returned with some news. It turns out my video card can't handle 1920x1080 resolution anymore or it'll crash and shows horizontal wavy lines on the monitor. I've set the resolution to 1600x1200 but it doesn't look good, so I'm going to send the VGA card back to the manufactuer because I have a 3 year warranty on this card. I'll mark this as solved once I've spent a little bit more time with the system to make sure that is the only problem before I send it off.
