    After the constant testing of every component, and the elimination of all other possibilities. it came down to the motherboard as the only other point of failure. Thanks to the advice and suggestions on this board, I checked RAM, Processor, Video Card, and due to the random nature of the points of failure, slowly I eliminated all other options. The motherboard became the focus after re-installation of all software, and the slow testing thereof. I updated to the latest BIOS, latest drivers, latest Windows, and still there were issues. So, in the end, it left the motherboard.

    I also noticed certain things like Chrome or iTunes crashing randomly which was a clue to reboot within 5-10 seconds or I would get a BSOD. I noticed that if I had on the board a code of 24 or 40, the board would crash randomly after a cold start from being shut down overnight. But that if I let it come to the desktop and then immediately re-booted I would get the A0 code which meant that the board would be stable. This led to more checking, and it appeared that there was some sort of shutdown issue where the board did not cleanly shut down but instead went into some weird hibernation state. The crashing of Chrome and iTunes gave me my clue that the issue was not a video driver, which seemed to be a standard crash issue, but instead a motherboard problem.

    The last couple of weeks I tested this theory, and it held up. Thanks to Zbook, and this board, I was slowly able to find my issue and get it fixed.

    Please post how you you had made your assessment to make a motherboard change so that it may help others that read the thread.

    Keep in mind that others may have MB that are no longer under warranty. So they will need to know how to make a test and a decision.

    Just a little update: Since I switched motherboards, the system has been rock steady, even when I was trying to crash it. So thanks it was the Gigabyte motherboard, the ASUS Crosshair VI Hero is solid.
