Default Blue Screen and Crashing

I have recently built my own computer and installed windows 7 on it. At first after installion everything look fine. But then as tie progresses I get more and more blue screens (ostly during start up) untill it will no longer boot. Booting in safe mode fails eventually too. I have installed all drivers. My build is below. Could this be caused by a defective hard drive?
I have tried running diagnostics on the drive but they do not seem to work. Chkdsk usually finds errors every time it is run. Thank you for your time.

Below is a link to the dump files.

Sound like corrupt startup files. Reinstall 7. All of your files will by default be moved to windows.old in your new os.

Run chkdsk /r /f and if it finds bad sectors and files in 2 consecutive runs then yes the hard drive is defective.
