I ended up making an exchange at microcenter for a new CPU. It's been running fine for the past 1-2 weeks. I believe it had to do with the RAM. My first one must of been weak since it struggled to work with my timing of 6-8-6. I havnt gotten a BSOD at idle yet. I've gotten a few BSOD with my new CPU but it waste because I was testing my OC, which is normal.
Try running your RAM at the very low speeds and high timing.
