    Default Asrock Z68 Pro3 / i5 2500k constant BSODs and won't boot

    I received a set of components yesterday for my new build:

    i5-2500k w/ stock cooler
    Asrock Z68 Pro3
    8GB G.Skill Ripjaws
    Radeon 6850
    Two Sata HDDs + One sata DVD
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    So far, I have been more or less completely unable to use this new computer. On first boot, the computer booted up fine. After I installed AVGand ATI Catalyst drivers I restarted to find that the computer reset itself just after the Microsoft logo comes together in the "Starting Windows" screen.

    At that point, I did a system restore and returned the system back to its original state where it is somewhat stable but frequently freezes and BSODs with errors like IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT amongst others.

    I've no idea why it's doing this. I have a HDD containing my old computer's Windows Vista 32 bit install and it boots and runs absolutely fine (Despite the huge number of mismatching drivers).

    I've also updated the BIOS to V1.60 to no avail.

    I have a VERY similar issue with a similar build

    Core i5 2500K running, stock speed and cooling
    Asrock P67 Fatal1ty Pro
    EVGA GTX 470
    2x4Gb G.skill Ripjaws running at 1.5V
    3xHDD and 1xSSD
    Windows 7 64bit
    Asrock P67 BIOS version 2.0 (latest)

    I'm getting BSOD's mainly while I game. They are ONLY of the type DRIVER_IRQL_LESS..etc.

    I have tried formatting and creating a fresh install of windows. I've updated to the latest Intel chipset from the Intel website, as well the Management Engine, LAN, onboard Audio, and USB 3.0 drivers from Asrock's website.
