Hello everyone!

Sorry to bother everyone here with my issue, I often try to solve things myself but with this one, I simply can't, been suffering with it for 3 days now and i'm getting a bit desperate here.
Also sorry for the rather big wall of text.

So, a little story first to help make things clear:

I build this PC in 2013, recently (about 2 weeks ago) I had issues with my previous motherboard (a Gigabyte 78LMT-S2 v1.0) which forced me to buy a new one (now a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P), I also had to change my graphics card, from a R9 270X to a R9 380 due to problems caused during a careless attempt to clean it (rusty screw broke and screwdriver hit the back of the card and broke a bunch of caps and small chips).
I got my new parts, installed on my PC and imediately started working fine, and it did work for about a week with absolutely no issues at all, I even had a pleasant boost in my games thanks to the new GPU and thanks to the fact that the new motherboard could run my 1866 RAM at proper speed instead of 1333 like the other one did.

Now the issue:

About a week after I got the new motherboard and graphics card things got weird.
3 days ago I woke up and turned my PC on as usual, instead of normal boot it did one hell of a long "beep" and the pc would not boot (all the fans inside the case started spinning), so I restarted my pc and it booted fine, but then windows failed to boot, it gave me an error and told my kernel was corrupted, I believed it was because I changed the mobo without doing a clean windows install, so I did it and used my pc normally for the entire day, played my games without any problems etc, then turned pc off and went bed.
Woke up the next day and turned pc on, nothing. No beeps, no video, fans spinning, so I restarted my PC and it booted, like the day before. Got the same windows error claiming my kernel was corrupt, but I restarted the PC yet again and it booted normally, as if nothing had happened.
That got me worried and I expent my entire day searching on my websites what could be the problem and found various possible issues, most people seem to think it could be memory or graphics card related, so I ran Memtest86 for about 9 hours and saw no errors then I ran Furmark in fullscreen @ 1080p for 30 minutes, the graphics card was completely stable with safe temps.
I got tired and decided to play some games then went bed.
Then I woke up today, turned my PC on, just like yesterday, no beeps, but everything else seemd to go on. I had to restart a few times to get it working, and it got working after about a minute waiting.
The two fans on the graphics card would not spin, they would start and stop a few times until they went full speed and the pc booted. Had a BSOD with no errors or anything just a "x24" on screen and then, the pc turned itself off.
I opened my case, removed the graphics card, the RAM and the bios battery. I put everything back on and turned the pc on. Everything worked on the first try and windows booted, right after it booted, I opened GPU-Z and CPU-Z to check if everything seemed normal (clocks etc). I ran the rendering test on GPU-Z to see if the clocks were normal when then I got a BSOD that only said "your pc ran into a problem and needs to restart", so I believe this BSOD was something related to the graphics card or the driver because it happened when the rendering test started.
I turned the pc off, removed the ram from slot 1 and placed it on slot 2, PC booted with no issues and didn't gave me any BSOD so far as I type this.

I have absolutely no idea what is going on, many hours searching online and no answers that were able to help.
I can't test other components on my PC since no one around here has something similar.
My graphics card, motherboard and PSU are still in the warranty.

My full specs are:

CPU: AMD FX-6300 (stock speed) Cooled with a Corsair H60
GPU: XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB (previously a Gigabyte R9 270X)
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P Rev 2.0 with updated BIOS to FC (previosuly a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2 Rev 1.0)
RAM: 1x8GB DDR3 1866 Corsair
PSU: EVGA 600B (previously a Corsair CX600)
HDD: 500GB Sata3 (that is from 2011, where windows is installed) and 1000gb Sata3 (about 6 months old).

I'm really desperate here as most of my parts are new and were pretty expensive for me right now, I couldn't figure out what to do.
What do you guys think it could be my issue?

Thanks in advance,

P.S: I can take photos and even make videos it you guys think it may help to understand better what I mean.
Also, sorry if I did many typing mistakes, not only english isn't my main language, but i'm rather stressed as I type this so i wouldn't be surprised if there were a few mistakes.

I have posted the required files, but at the very moment I really doubt it's something about Windows, since the problems are with boot. Once I boot into the OS, the PC works perfectly fine.

[SOLVED] Windows Update can't function after disc image restore
I used a disk image backup to restore my computer, and now Windows Update is reporting that it can't get updates. The disk image was pre SP1, so I tried to install SP1, but that was unsuccessful. Thanks in advance for any input. OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)

I'm kind of at a loss. This server as been running ok now for 6 months but after moving it I am having all sorts of problems. Looking for pointers on how to troubleshoot and/or narrow down the source of the error.
