    Thank you for the info. Do I absolutely NEED to backup my files? Or just incase. I don't have many files on my computer right now, just a few games and other applications so I could easily redownload them. Not having a backup (if possible) would save me some trouble and purchase of a disk drive (I don't currently have one).

    Thanks again for helping me!

    If I were you (you told you don't have a lot of files on your PC) I would do a clean install and then try without GPU and with Microsoft standard drivers only for some time (also, do you overclock your CPU?). I mean it will help you to eliminate any third party influence. If you still receive bsods then it will be mb, cpu, psu, ram related. If no, you will check gpu and drivers.

    Another way to test your system is ==> msconfig ==>services ==> non microsoft ==>disable all ==> reboot

    It will affect some of your programs but since it's temporary not a pain. So, if you won't receive bsods after that it means some service influences on you. Then you can back to msconfig and enable 50% of services and check again, then 50% of the services which are left disabled and so on until you find the faulty one.

    Thanks for the info. I just installed windows 10 a few days ago. How exactly am I supposed to just disable the GPU? I do not overclock my CPU.

    Physically Just remove it for some time (2-3 days). 4770k has built in GPU, which will allow you to use PC, watch videos and play games on low settings of course.
    So, what's your power supply? sometimes random bsods mean that your power supply is faulty and can't provide enough stable power for your rig. You van also try to update you MB Bios if you haven't done it yet.

    I'm actually upgrading my graphics card to a 1060, it is coming in in a couple of days so I think I will just wait for it instead of removing GPU. My PSU is a 760W and I think it is more than enough to power my rig. How do you update the MB Bios? I have all the drivers updated.

    I honestly think it could be some sort of driver issue. Every hardware test I have run has passed, so next time I'm on my desktop I will try using driver verifier.

    Please create a restore point.
    When you are comfortable navigating the windows recovery or advanced troubleshooting menu and modified automatic restart so that it is off, and have read the link on windows driver verifier you can start using windows driver verifier. For the bsod please update the zip file or post a new one after the bsod.

    I am currently using the driver verifier to track down bluescreens. Going into safe mode with cmd and running verifier /reset is not working and it blue screens again on start up. This is no problem since I am able to just do a system restore but I do not have advanced information for the drivers that crashed, only the name. Every time I restart the computer I run verifier again, unchecking the problematic drivers. So far, these have been:
