I hadn't tried that, will give that a shot now.
It did start after installing chipset drivers each time to be honest.
Put the SSD back in and changed the AHCI to IDE, from it's default one and it seems to be working perfectly now, not had any crashes since I put it back in (6 hours ago), and spent most of that time gaming.
Obviously it would be nice to keep it as ACHI in the BIOS, but it's playing nice and it works, so I will have a play with it tomorrow check other features.
Cheers for the tip, saved me the wasted time of sending it back and them saying there's no fault.
