    Update - no action necessary.
    SSD has been out for 3 days and no BSOD. I'll update in a week or so and mark as solved.

    Update:
    On a whim I let my system update to Windows 10. Went up to 3 BSODs a day. Often when accessed remotely (using TeamViewer). Gave up. Did a factory reset. Now I wait and keep my driver updates to a minimum.

    Okay - Win10 didn't help at all. Several BSODs. Mostly occurring watching YouTube videos or editing videos. Surrendered. Did a system refresh back to day 1.
    Went to MSI website and have installed all of the listed drivers, in order, and re-booted after each driver.
    The NVidia driver has updated itself to the latest version.
    Now I wait and try to break it. Shouldn't be hard.

    Temperature test showed no problems.
    CPU test showed no problems.
    Core windows file integrity test is clean (but I did need to fix a problem)
    ChkDsk finished with no errors.
    I can reproduce the BSOD by leaving Firefox playing a long playlist of YouTube videos.
    Was not able to reproduce BSOD in clean boot
    I wasn't able to get computer to have networking access in Safe Mode so I wasn't able to test BSOD condition. I think I need to figure out how to duplicate without YouTube.

    DOTA2 crashes within 30 seconds of playing in normal Windows boot. No BSOD, however.

    Other note: When I plug a headset with separate plugs the laptop is unable to 'hear' the microphone. Realtek reports that something was plugged into the jack but it doesn't seems to be able to set it up properly. I had this problem before restoring the computer but I don't recall how I fixed it.

    Other notes:
    Laptop is less than a year old, purchased new from store.
    Before it was really used had store install additional SSD (there's an accessible slot and I've determined that BSOD occurs with and without SSD installed) and new RAM (4x8gb).
    Hammer Test on RAM (took about 8 hours) showed no errors.
    I do have VirtualBox installed. That's basically the purpose of this machine and why I purchased so much RAM. Will try to reproduce BSOD in Clean Boot mode after un-installing VirtualBox.

    UPDATE:
    I took it into the shop (still under warranty) and it looks like re-applying thermal paste has sorted out the issue. I'm able to play long play-lists of YouTube videos that would normally make it crash and I can play DOTA 2 for more than 30 seconds (previously it would simply quit).

    Marking as solved.
