Windows 7: BSOD, Random with different errors and usually when playing MW3

BSOD, Random with different errors and usually when playing MW3

Hi Guys,

I recently built a new PC and I've been having a few issues. I think it's the RAM, but I'm not sure. The first time I booted it up, it only had the ram, HDD, DVD Rom and Motherboard hooked up, but as soon as I got into the Windows 7 Installer I got the dreaded blue screen of death.

I have checked the ram is compatible with the motherboard and even got professional advice, but I'm still constantly getting the blue screen errors.

I've attached the dump files for someone to review. Any help will be appreciated!

Many thanks,

The motherboard is a Gigabyte Z68P-DS3
Ram:Gskill Sniper 8gb Kit 4GBx2
Core i5 2400
Gigabyte ATI Radeon 6450 HD Graphics (Added recently)
500gb Seagate Barracuda Sata3 HDD
Samsung 22x DVD RW

You can try these battery of tests to try to ascertain what hardware it is. However, be aware that if it's the CPU, PSU or Motherboard, all these tests can show up no error or more than one can show up with errors. The tests are as followed:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Large FFTs; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all or the advanced ones.

All of these (excluding MemtestG80/CL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load.
