the bsod ranges from "driver irql not less or equal" to "memory management" and i have yet to find anything to fix this problem other then when i ran AMD utility clean up for a fresh install it didnt fully remove amd settings so when i installed settings didnt get reinstalled. this fixed my problem for 11 hours before i tried to reinstall amd settings.

 

I am running a brand new custom build:

Mobo: ASrock z97 Pro4

CPU: 4.0ghz i7 4970k quad core

GPU: AMD rx480

PSU: Corsair 850W (cant remember the specific model)

ram: 16gb ddr3

 

The crashes have plagued my pc for a month now on various iterations of drivers. i have tried almost every thing ive read online (mem86, chkdsk, sfc, new pci slot, several driver reinstalls, a system restore.) and this is the first time its ran without dieing spectacularly. im currently running windows 10.
