But more on topic, I am currently running prime, stock, without hdmi connected.
Everything is plugged into an apc h15
power conditioner/surge protector.
The apc is designed to give steady voltage regardless of wall power conditions. The only physical connection between the pc and the receiver was hdmi.
The driver issue is interesting as I didn't seem to have this problem initially and it does seem hdmi related as it never happens right at power up, it happens after the 2-3 second delay of the hdmi talking to each other.
I did change to a 'better' hdmi cable a while back also. It could maybe be a small short in that cable somewhere. I will be trying another monitor and not using hdmi off of the gpu to troubleshoot some more after the prime run. I think I will try connecting if the hdmi of the mobo itself and see if it still happens as well.
Now I just have to wait 11 more hours for this prime run to finish!
Edit: I forgot to mention for neofury that it is kernel power error at time of blue screen, but more voltage made no difference and it even blue screened at stock.

That having been said, I do get dips and I have no issues, but your case might be different. Unless you have an actual battery APC (Uninterrupted Power Supply Backup) I do believe there's a chance it could dip and cause issues.
That having been said, it could very well be your PSU having issues dishing the power out. I do feel driver is a possibility though. Try reinstalling drivers for anything HDMI related. So if you're using a video card, try reinstalling the drivers. If it's your mobo HDMI, try reinstalling.
Recently I updated my GTX 680 drivers and suddenly Sc2 of all games started crashing. I decided to downgrade back to the previous version and all is well now.
EDIT: Just checked your build, we seem to have similar setups. Last generation NVIDIA going to a TV. Well for me it goes from PC GTX 680 --> Surround Sound (Pioneer) --> TV.
Is this also what you're doing? And when you power up your surround it blue screens???
That was my point:
Get rid of everything and use it as it should be used.
No APC, no receiver, no HDMI, no nothing.
Please have a straight cable from your wall socket to your PC - and nothing else.
A monitor + keyboard + mouse - as simple as it gets.
Then do your STOCK tests.
"kernel power" can be anything, as stated before - from PSU, motherboard, or RAM.
I HIGHLY suggest making your life easier and eliminating any EXTERNAL FACTORS to your tests.
