random blue screens

Level 7
I'm getting random blue screens. I installed all the drivers that came with CROSSHAIR V FORMULA-Z except the asmedia sata controller driver it will not install i get a path error.I did a fresh install of windows 8.1 and that didn't help and the driver i get off of the site (Asmedia SATA Controller Driver V2.0.1.916 Windows 8.1 32bit & 64bit.(WHQL)) gives me the same error.

Hi Iceassassin77 🙂

What do you have plugged in and to what SATA port. RAID or AHCI? Some full system details always helps. The controller is enabled in BIOS right?...these ports are only for optical drives and storage not OS drives...
