ASUS Haswell platform Notebook shipped with low voltage memory DDR3L(1.35V). If user want to upgrade the memory , please also choose low voltage memory DDR3L(1.35V). It will cause no boot when the notebook which shipped with low voltage memory DDR3L(1.35V) exchange the memory to standard voltage memory DDR3(1.5V).

The link above will show you how identify the difference.

This could be the problem causing BSOD

I have confirmed that I used DDR3L, I suspect more on the SSD

Interesting update is that everything went normal after I try to check the drives using GParted booted from USB, it happened twice already since then and booting GParted somehow solves it, I just booted and then turn it off again, no changes are done
