Ok, well here's a massive update:
In addition to everything I've tried before I have now
1. Bought new RAM to match my 5-5-5-18 corsair (its the exact same stuff, same voltage now)...and still it BSOD'd
2. Found my Motherboard was running hot, so I took the NorthBridge heat dissipator off, cleaned up the crap the manufacture put on there and put arctic silver on that baby (dropped temps by over 20 degrees!)...and still it BSOD'd
3. Run Memtest, Furmark, Prime 95 and all that stuff for extended periods of time 6+ hours each and no issues were found....and still it BSOD'd
4. Completely re-wired my computer to ensure maximum airflow (I'm still not over the temps in my case) and still...you got it...it BSOD'd.
So we're right back where we started, except my case is damn near turning into a fridge at this point (injecting humor to diffuse tension). Latest BSOD message was once again, related to NVIDIA drivers
. I've since COMPLETELY and i do mean COMPLETELY ripped every shadowy presence of the NVIDIA drivers and then rolled back to a previous driver
to test stability. I'm also running a profile on my fan to raise their speed and ensure the card is not burning up the way it was before (70 degrees under load)
I'm hoping i dont crash again. If I do I will post the next BSOD that comes up. And likely start thinking of reversing back to playing my games on an abacus.
