    Okay previously I updated to the F5 update should I update the BIOS again to this F6 people have told me it can damage the computer. Also is there a way to get my computer to BSOD sooner if it's going to as I get little time during the week with work and all and sometimes it can take over 4 or 5 hours to get it to BSOD. Thanks again.

    If a BIOS update goes wrong it can brick the motherboard. This is a reason why motherboards have 2 BIOS/UEFI's, if 1 of them has a problem after an update you can use the other to recover.
    I would suggest to set the BIOS settings at the optimal default settings (optimal = change if necessary for stability), this sometimes helps a bit.

    You can run driver verifier to let it crash sooner, but it won't catch the root cause, it only hides the root cause by letting you think the problem is a driver.

    If the BIOS update doesn't help, run below tests to attempt to find the cause.
    There are no tests for the motherboard, you can only test the motherboard by replacing it or using it on another system
    For the PSU there is a voltage test: PSU - Test DC Output Voltage - Windows 7 Help Forums
    For the cables it is the same as the motherboard, you need to test it by replacing it or using it on another system.

    Okay so I updated to BIOS version F6, I have tested the CPU with prime95 on all three different test options for three hours each, I have tested GPU with furmark for 1 hour, I have ran all of the test you gave me for the ssd and hdd and all passed, did not get to check PSU voltages with a multimeter, only got to check them with HWinfo64. Still getting BSODs figured I would show you one more time and then if theres nothing obvious with the report I will manually check voltages at PSU and if that is fine I guess I will replace the mobo.

    Is the firmware of the SSD up to date?

    Okay I looked all over for drivers for my SSD and cannot find one. It's a Samsung 850 evo 120 GB.

    You need to download the Samsung Magician program, with the program you can check for updates and update the firmware.

    Downloaded the magician software, there was an update for my SSD, updated it to the latest version. Played for a few and got another BSOD.
