Windows 7: BSoDs/Freezes seemingly at random

BSoDs/Freezes seemingly at random

Hey, I've been fighting with my computer for a little over a week now and I'm starting to run out of ideas. It worked fine and dandy and the next day it started to give me BSoDs or just freeze, forcing me to reset the system. The BSoDs give no crash dumps whatsoever but I get them when a system freeze hits.

I rand checkdisk and hd tuner, ran memtest for ~6 hours with no errors and the day before yesterday I did a clean install of windows. It seemed to work for a day and a half then BAM - 2 BSoDs and one freeze in short succession. The BSoDs were while gaming, the freeze came when watching a youtube clip. So far today it's behaved but I've had it shut off for about half of the day too.

My windows 7 is x64.
Not the original installed on the system (was vista, but formated and installed 7 ~1 year ago).
It's a full retail.

The age of the hardware is everything from 1,5 years (motherboard) to half a year (GPU/CPU).
Age of OSinstallation is two days.

Currently running with catalyst 10.12 because I thought I'd go back to GPUdrivers I remember not having issues with in case they were causing anything, but that didn't help.

I'm at my wits end so I'm hoping you can shed some light on this.

Just had another BSoD, but with a memory_management issue this time. That's new.

On Wed 2011-07-27 11:30:51 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\072711-16567-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7FD00)
Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x5001, 0xFFFFF70001080000, 0x3A2A2, 0x3A2A300074542)
Error: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Happened a minute after I booted up a game I had been playing without issues for about 2 hours just an hour before (as in, played for two hours then took one hours break). Also, getting on my nerves

And I got another freeze (not a BSoD) which is the more common of the two, and it left this behind.

On Wed 2011-07-27 19:34:52 GMT your computer crashed

Had another BSoD just now with stop error 0x0000001e, all other arguments were 0x00000000. As usual my computer refuses to create crash dumps when BSoDing (only when the system freezes) so can't attach a dump to this one.

Edit: Ran Furmark without issues, it didn't climb over 70. Prime95 though, Core 1 at 91 and the others in the mid-80s. That sounds a little.. high.

Edit2: Another BSoD while playing, stop 0x0000000a, driver_irql_not_less_or_equal and as usual, no crash dump.

Edit3: And one more BSoD and one freeze. Wow. Something is SERIOUSLY wrong in my system.

Been running with Driver Verifier for about a day now, received one BSoD with 0x000000BE (while gaming) and one freeze with 0x00000124 (while watching a video) so I'm guessing something's really about to break/is broken.

Giving up and turning it into a repair shop on Monday and hope they can find the issue because nothing I've tried have helped.

So, I'm back. The service shop said they couldn't find anything and that the tested all the hardware (but I STILL hear that infernal clicking noice from the case) and lo and behold, the very same evening (last Friday) I got the computer back it froze twice.

I'm betting they just let the computer run without actually running any programs on it, that way it doesn't crash - it only crashes when it does something, like downloading something and watching a video simultaneously, or playing a game -sighs-

Well, except for Minecraft. It lets me run Minecraft without problems, but then it's not the most demanding game out there either

Still, I'm down to exhanging hardware now. With the freezing/BSoDing (only when running something, like said) and that clicking noise (which doesn't come from any of the fans) which is the most likely culprit to exchange first, the HDDs?

-sighs- It worked fine for two days now after I switched out the hard drives and the RAM, and today it began again. This was readable in event viewer if that helps:

Also submitting the last two dumps. PLEASE let me know if you can help, I really don't want to turn this machine to service and pay roughly $176 again for them to find "nothing wrong" with anything.

Just got another one after hours of no problem. Interestingly enough, all three happened when I tried to install Borderlands through Steam. I'll keep using the machine normally without touching that game and see if that helps at all.

Nope, didn't help. The computer froze when booting up another game.

I have zero clues what's wrong here. Guess I'll have to turn it in and hope they'll find something. Again.
