Just did 4.3 at 1.30vcore and blue screen again. Could it be something with my HDD?

I highly doubt. You may be looking at a defective motherboard that's not applying the proper voltages. Does everything work fine with the auto settings?

Sorry for noobness but how would I test the auto settings properly? I did use the intel/msi tuning utility fine if that's what you mean by auto

Up the volts by +0.01 to 1.31V, rinse and repeat by +0.01V until no BSOD. Stop at 1.45V! If there is no stability at 4.3GHz then drop to 4.2Ghz and rinse and repeat with the voltages.

There should be a "restore defaults" option somewhere in the bios menu

Please look at the system components a person is running before making statements like this. 1.48V on an h80i would be terrible. Stick with 1.4-1.42 and test temps. I'm willing to bet that will put you close to the 80C mark and honestly I wouldn't increase voltage beyond that.

Btw by auto I mean reverting every single setting to the stock values of the motherboard.

There are two ways you can OC your system: let the BIOS OC Genie do it for you, or you can do itself( playing with the OC and Volts as I mentioned in the above post.) The former is easier and less time consuming while the latter is slighter harder than the former and takes more time to ensure a stable OC.
