BSOD 0x0a while installing win 7 updates

  1. I have been trying to troubleshoot my BSOD's these past couple of weeks and I need some help.
    This is my story so far.
    I had to replace both my MB and my CPU for reasons that don't matter for this question.
    1) I reformatted my HDD and reinstalled windows 7.
    2) I installed my MB drivers, then my graphics drivers, ect.
    3) I started updating Windows 7
    This is where my BSOD's start. all through the update process im constantly crashing and blue screening, though I finally update everything. I go to install a game (BF4) and every time I try to install it, same BSOD. (0x0a)
    The BSOD's I have been getting are 0x0a, 0x1a, 0xd1, 0x1e, and 0x1a
    all seem to point towards a memory issue.
    These are my specs. I'm starting to wonder if I have a compatibility issue? I have run memtest on a single stick of ram for 8 hours with no errors, still got BSOD when installing with it by itself.

    Edit: I followed the advice on defragging and the page file before I posted this, and when that was done and I tried to install the game again (I find its a good test to see if everything works) I got another BSOD, though this time it was a 0x101.
    CPU? I rebooted and tried the install a second time just to be sure and my system just froze.
    Win 7 x64
    AMD FX 8350
    AsRock 970 Pro3 R2.0
    NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560
    DDR3 Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 1.50v CML16GX3M4A16009B
    (though my troubleshooting I have also tried DDR3 Corsair 1600mhz 1.65v TR3X6G1600C9)

    ST3250823AS ATA Device (win 7 installed on it and has worked flawlessly in the past)
    Thank in advance for looking at this, I am really stuck here, minidump files attached as a zip because it said the file extensions (dmp) weren't allowed. weird.
