    From your description of the problem, I would not conclude that the MB is at fault yet.

    Gigabyte does not offer that service. You should contact the place of purchase.

    I have never had any reason to deal with them. I just checked the website here.

    However your problem is more likely being caused by some software/driver issue.

    That depends on the frequency of the BSOD. Once a year? Absolutely, you pretty much have to expect it. If it happens daily, certainly not.
