So I went over to the Windows 7 hardware compatability forum and submitted a file full of my bugcheck files in minidump files. Here was the response I got:

the L1 Cache of your Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU X 980 @ 3.33GHz has some issues:

Look for a BIOS Update:

BiosVersion = 1408
BiosReleaseDate = 09/21/2010
BaseBoardManufacturer = ASUSTeK Computer INC.
BaseBoardProduct = P6T

and make sure the CPU doesn't overheat.

Not sure if that's something that can be fixed or if I need to replace the chip somehow? Not sure how to fix an L1 Cache problem? Any takers?
