I understand this is a new build and you are getting BSOD on stock settings. Sorry for any inconvenience but let me try to help.
I also checked the other thread you mentioned and indeed Claire_Monkey has a defective processor.
My recommendation would be updating the motherboard BIOS to the latest version 0802, if you need help updating this BIOS version, please check with Asus
Hope it helps.
I updated the bios to 0802 shortly after posting this message.
Due to the "every few days" intermittency of this bugcheck/bluescreen/exception; I cannot be sure that it has fixed the problem or even affected it.
Please let me try to be clear about this: Are there changes/fixes/updates in 0802 that may actually affect this?
I need to know because I only have several days left to exchange the processor at the store if it is defective.
So I need to diagnose this as quickly as possible.
Knowing my luck, one day after my exchange period runs out, I will get IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL again.
If 0802 is NOT known to resolve this particular issue, is there anything else I can look at to try to make a determination?

Michi, the only 'solution' thus far is to disable ITBM in BIOS. I was in a similar situation, first assuming it had to be bad hardware. It wasn't. It's just that intel isn't as good in coding as they think they are. Just look at IME for example, it's a disaster.
Ain't that something? You don't get what you pay for, with Intel, apparently.
