It has been for a while that I get random blue screens that are forcing me to reset the computer. Now I got a new a SSD (a 2nd 120GB) so I decided it is a good chance to try and mess around with RAID.
I decided to see go on Raid 0 to get more capacity on my windows drive + speed. I can always format the drive so if one of the drive will fall, I have regualr backups for a storage drive, so that will be okay.
Ever since then (two weeks ago) I had constant BSOD. They seem to appear at random, some times it is when I watch a youtube video, and other times, while watching my own videos.

I thought it might be a case of a virus, so I unplugged all my hdds, and only left one SSD plugged in (after canceling the RAID 0). The new SSD. I installed a fresh copy of windows 7 on that, and still I got BSOD.
I then figured, it has to be some kind of hardware failure, but what kind? Is it my CPU getting too hot? I made sure the bios was set to default and all overclocks gone, yet it still happens.
My only choice (as I see it) is to LEAVE windows and go for linux.. Problem is.. This PC is ment for gaming :D

What does the BSOD say? I'd suggest posting a photo.

Whenever I had the BSOD it was a video problem. Funny how you get it watching youtube or videos. You've had a lot of issues with your computer. Seems it's not good for gaming or video at all. Maybe it's a good pron computer...lol.

post a screeny or the error.

The only time I've ever gotten a BSoD on Windows 8 is because of RAM problems. For some reason, some app takes up 14+ GB of RAM and doesn't even go down when I shut down the computer using the normal power -> shutdown method. (A clean boot doesn't work, that's how I know it's some app). Once I hit 16GB, I just get BSoD and then everything is good again (the error saying not enough memory)
