I got the new system and had easy set up.
Installed my games, transferred media, and started using.

But I am already getting blue screens during idle times!

Anyone have a clue why this might be happening?

I spent quite a bit of money and am already getting blue screens (after 6 DAYS!!!)

Sorry to hear.  I would do the usual...spend a little time and re-seat the gpu, all connectors to gpu and mobo.  Reseat the ram modules.   If that doesn't do it give DS a call and see what's up.
 
 
Also try a System Restore to a previous point.  A recently installed program can cause it.
 
 
Good luck

Spent 2 hours plus on phone with tech support today.
Only reason call ended was the end of the work day.
Pleasant and helpful assistance, but nothing was solved.

I took basically every part of the computer off and put it back on besides the processor.

Now every time I restart my computer I have to re-install the Nvidia driver.

I'm pretty sure DS did have you do this, but just in case, did you try just one 570 at a time seated in the mobo.  If that one faults, try the other by itself.  Also, try rolling back the Nvidia drivers to an older one.  If you have 295.73, roll back to 285.62., etc
 
Did you do a System Restore to a point when you first got it?
 
Again, if DS had you do this then just disregard all my rambling.

The computer is on its way to me from Digital Storm.

After it arrives (and is in working condition), I will post a review/my story of the process and computer.
The outlook is good now, I just hope I don't have to call support again.

I got the computer back last night.

Everything looks great and is running excellent.

But the voltage on my CPU overclock is 1.416.
I was told to have them keep it under 1.4, but I have also heard that if it is above 1.4 and cooled properly there will be no issue.
If there any issue with the voltage being over 1.4 if it is cooled properly?

This is starting to get annoying.
I received the computer back from Digital Storm about a week ago due to faulty memory (have only been able to use computer this weekend due to travel for work).

My system will randomly shut off while I am using my computer (regardless of game, web browsing, etc...).

I re-seated all components and check all connections to be sure there were no issues with that.
It is not a heat issue (because with HWMonitor open my temps are way below any critical point).
The power cord is plugged in properly and the only power being drawn from the outlet is the monitor and the computer.

Could it be a Realtek Driver issue?

In the Event Viewer it is listed as Kernel-Power EventID 41 Task Category (63).
