BSOD - x64

Lately I've been getting more BSODs.
I'm running:
x64
retail bought
completely custom built
about a month old.

The error codes I got when it crashed were:
0x000000F4: {0x0000000000000003, 0x FFFFFA800858B910, 0xFFFFFA800858BBF0, 0xFFFFF80002FDB8B0}

Any help would be great.

System specs:
Intel i5 2400
Z68X-UD3R-B3
G.Skill ripjaw 8gb
1GB 6850
1Tb WD BLUE * 2
60Gb Agility 3 SSD

With windows being installed on the SSD

No DMP files included in upload try this method.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Even after following those instructions and rebooting my comp, I can't seem to find the minidump folder. Folder options are show all hidden. I even tried to copy and paste C:\Windows\Minidump into the address bar in folders.

Am I...Doing something wrong?

Perhaps not. Crashes are stored in memory then written to page file. If you have no page file, or it is on another HD, it may not be written, also if you do a hard reboot, it doesnt give the computer time to write the file, so again it may not be there.
