    Ok, the obvious first choice would be to reexamine the hardware install, particularly the heatsink.
    Second would be the power supply ( possible, but not probable).

    Lastly would be the software environment.
    I think the most common problem would be some sort of infestation (trojan, etc).
    Reinstall Windows and all drivers.

    thanks, i will try you suggestions, but the only reason i dont want to reinstall windows is because i will loose lots of files and hav nothing to put them on right now. also before my computer gets ready to give me a BSOD the harddrive makes a funny noise like it is trying hard to load something. Hope this helps!

    Check your IDE cables. It's possible you may have dislodged/damaged the cable to your HDD during cpu installation.

    Check your event log for errors too. There may be something which will give a clue about the problem.

    Check the NORTHBRIDGE heatsink, if you've disturbed it the northbridge chip may be overheating.

    A Volcano 12 doesn't fit on the northbridge.

    Does the hard drive make a loud click just before the BSOD?
    Is the computer difficult to start again after the BSOD? I mean, do you have to wait a while, unplug the power cord or anything unusual before it'll start again?

    Yes it does make a click, click, click sound and yea i do have to do some of those things before it starts back up. so to answer your questions yes, also takes forever to get it to start up after a BSOD.
