Fresh windows install, still BSODs

I'm having trouble identifying the cause of numerous BSODs and hoping someone can be of some help.

The first few BSODs would happen during gaming sessions which resulted in > irql_not_less_or_equal > nvlddmkm.sys. I tried updating video card drivers, then completely removing and updating with no luck. The BSODs then started to happen with general usage and I was getting different stop codes everytime. I resorted to a complete reinstall of windows which hasn't resolved the issue. I'm assuming at this point I have some faulty hardware, however safe mode is BSOD free. I'm not sure how to proceed.

BSODs:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
BAD_POOL_HEADER
CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED


with different files names such as:
nvlddmkm.sys
ataport.sys
k57nd60a.sys
igdkmd64.sys

etc.

Things I've tried:
  • sfc /scannow - before and after format, no issues
  • windows memory diagnostic tool - before format, no issues
  • chkdsk - before and after format, no issues.
I ran this from My PC>properties>tools>error checking. I'm unsure if the command prompt method is more thorough?
  • driver verifier (non-microsoft drivers only) - after format, multiple BSODs.
This crashed every time for different drivers even after updating or disabling said drivers.

I've attatched the W7F Diagnostic Tool results.

Hi,
at least two of the driver verifier dumps point to this driver as the culprit:

k57nd60a.sys Wed Aug 19 19:16:18 2015: Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet NDIS6.x Unified Driver

See if your motherboard support page has an update.
