As some of you may be aware, over the last 2-3 months I have been speccing out, and then building my new gaming monster. Whilst it's name is still a work in progress (if anyone has any good ideas, I would appreciate it), I have now completed it and am using it (I forgot how much of a bitch it is to setup a new PC software wise...). Without further ado, I present the Imgur album of my new PC.

GPU temp under load hit a max of 46C, CPU hit a max of 71C. The fans didn't even have to go up beyond ~40%
Now I just need that 144hz 4k monitor Asus announced at CES...
Well the Gpa came over for the holidays, saw my sweet ass rig (courtesy of @Juntau and the SCB community), and said "Here is a $1000 bucks. I want a pc that is fast and cool like yours." I said "Alright Grandpa, but only if we team up later to play some Overwatch and pwn some n00bs!"
So my Grandpa is 86 years old, obviously he is not going to be a power user playing VR games everyday. Just needs something that is fast, efficient, and affordable. Obviously the budget is $1000. Doesn't need to be a power house gaming rig either. Light internet surfing, email, excel sheets, and copying data/pictures now and then. He would also like for it to have the ability to "play games" (I'm not even sure he knows how to install them LUL).
This is where i'm at right now:

Couple things I want to keep in this build:
Black and White Themed I love the NZXT Case and Water Cooler that I picked currently - not changing these two items Would like to keep these so I can overclock the proc and get more performance out of the i5. MUST have an optical drive Would be nice to fit a brand new copy of windows 10 into the budget if possible. Would be nice if I could include one led light strip to accent the Whites/blacks Lets get this puppy under $1000! Feedback needed!
I've been having some issues with my PC lately, and they seem to be getting worse. I figured I'd ask here in addition to a few other forums since I know generally the PC gaming community can be pretty knowledgeable about issues like this. Anyway, here's some info:
OS: Windows 10 Pro
CPU: Intel i7-4770k
GPU: AMD 290x
Motherboard: Asus Z87 pro
Power supply: 750 watt
Symptoms: Blue screen of death (usually get error code "WHEA_uncorrectable_error") about 4-5 times every day for probably the last 2 weeks. Severely impacting the usability of my PC.
Troubleshooting steps: I've got information from BlueScreenViewer and the Windows Reliability Monitor, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for. I've included some screenshots of what I've been seeing below if it helps any. If more information is needed just ask.

Any help is appreciated.
