I'm no expert, but usually our experienced members recommending testing memory using MemTest86+, as opposed to MemTest: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Yes I had installed all the motherboard drivers the first time, when the crashes started happening I did an install without the drivers to see if that was the issue. It looks like it wasn't. I was going to do a clean install again from the link above and see how that goes.
Besides changing my SSD from IDE to AHCI I have all the settings on fail safe defaults, I have also tried optimal, same problem. Also I have tried IDE mode as well and that made no difference to the crashes.
Sorry I was lazy and didn't remember the whole name of the application I used, which was "MemTest86+". I let it run for 10 passes. No errors.
Also thank you for that, marsmimar.
