Windows 7: BSOD Randomly, not sure of reason :/

only thing im not sure about is if my MB was just showing the red cuz of error or if all the led error lights for each component were red cuz the way i sit and the way my tower is set, i just happen to be leaned over and could see the RAM 1 but no way i could see the cpu and boot led error lights, kinda why i wished it woulda BSOD again so i could confirm just the ram 1 was on and not all cuz of bsod but mem test is running at the moment.

ill be awake for bit longer so if need any info or anything just say so, if not ill post back after memtest runs for awhile this time.

Ok so memtest86+ still running but i noticed after the first pass was done around 52-53 mins, that the second 1 running is still running at 2hrs and 31 mins and it shows pass 100% at top but its still running test 8. Why would the second pass be taking way longer than first 1? Is that a tell tell sign ram is acting funky or is this normal behavior for this test? just wanna find out cuz dont see why second pass would take longer than first.

It seems to me when I ran Memtest86+ on my systems, the time varied from one pass to another. I believe this is normal behavior. It should take about 6 hours to do 7 passes for every 4 GB of RAM on the system. That was my experience, at any rate. Yours may take a little longer or a little less time depending on the RAM, CPU, etc.

kk just wanted to make sure, well its been 10hrs and 38 mins and its on pass 7 and still no errors but ive ran memtest before along with few other ram testers but im starting to think its the MB at this point causing issues and might end up rma it, what u think? cuz ive done several installs of windows, done plenty of tests, and cpu still gets bsods and acts weird occasionaly.

It's up to you. Hardware caused crashes are very difficult to track down through online debugging. I would suspect CPU, PSU, Motherboard, or Memory at this point because of the Prime95 message. Memory has mostly been ruled out. Do you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard?

Ya i believe hardware cuz ive never had this much trouble on a desktop even though its my first build and i had a pc techy friend help me along the way and he even kinda not sure why i get so many issues.

I have latest bios yes also. And the intel i72600k ive never even seen a review of someone having a bad 1 yet and having to return minus the ppl who just hate intel cpus that give it bad reviews on newegg but doesnt mean they dont exist. Just based off reviews on newegg im leaning toward MB at this point and im currently running prime95 again for and hr and my cpu core temps are in the 80s, is that safe by the way?

Im currently looking at this MB to get as replacement, what do u think, if im not allowed to post links im sorry :/ but if so here is link to the MB im looking at.

Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

You really should post a thread in Hardware & Devices - Windows 7 Forums to get a new motherboard. Fill in your system specs first; they will ask you to do so otherwise. You can use System Info - See Your System Specs as a guide to fill them in on your profile.

Temperatures in the 80s are a bit high. That CPU should run in the 60s or 70s at the highest. Safest would be 60s.

What has 28 minutes left to go?

97 is very high. Make sure you have your heat sink on tight and the thermal compound is properly spread on the CPU.
