rblaes_99my guess is that the BSODs are on the hardware side and the creative soundcard is tossing a wrench h into the PCIE bus. and that sound card might have been fine on pre PCIe 4.0 capable motherboards..... it shouldn't matter, but like i said, with creative stuff i start there.
rblaes_99i would get rid of all of that extra crap. i buy silicone cap covers from ebay and seal off every single SATA port on the motherboard day one. nothing gets plugged in there ever.
