After looking at the list you gave me i found a couple i think will work.
The RipjawsZ looks like it would be really nice. It's compatible with my processor and motherboard. It has the correct voltage. The timings are a little different than what my manual suggests but it's close. Would this be a good choice with little chance of issues?

The RipjawsX is another i found. That would be a second option to the RipjawsZ if you think the X would work better.

RipjawsZ:
G.SKILL- World leading DDR3 computer memory and SSD manufacturer -Products
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GZH

RipjawsX:
G.SKILL- World leading DDR3 computer memory and SSD manufacturer -Products
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL

You need to find RAM that runs at the frequency you want at 1.5v.
I've seen posts saying the i5-3570K won't run RAM above (?)2000MHz.
Edit: found info, the i5-3570K won't run RAM above 2133MHz.

The first one is 2400MHz at 1.65v, not recommended due to frequency and voltage.
The second one is 2133MHz at 1.5-1.6v, which means at that frequency 1.6v, not recommended due to frequency and voltage.

The above will run at ~1866MHz at 1.5v, and should be more stable, under clocked, than a 1866MHz at 1.5v. But, do you want to pay more for RAM that you will run at lower frequency?

These are some to consider:
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM

Thank you for helping me out on this.
Am i going to see a big difference between the two? In other words, is the $25 extra worth it for the more expensive pair?
If all goes well, and i put one of these pairs in my computer, they should have no issues correct?

P.S. I got a blue screen a moment ago. I'm really hoping the RAM is the fix we're looking for.

With computers nothing is guaranteed, but yes from the memtest86+ errors even after the voltage changes, this should correct the issues.

Both are quality RAM kits, theoretically the more expensive RAM should have higher bin (better quality) chips, I would probably save the $25 and get the less expensive kit.
Either way you won't notice any difference in performance, you might get the more expensive kit to overclock higher, but since that won't give you any noticeable performance gain, it's not really worth the cost.

Alright. Thank you very much for all your help. I'll go ahead and order the RAM and put it in my comp over Christmas break. If all goes well that'll fix the problem. I'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks again to you and every one else who lent a hand in helping me out with this. I would have been lost otherwise.

Have a Merry Christmas.

You're welcome.

Let us know the results.

FYI: I did find the reference to the RAM frequency issue, i5-3570K won't run RAM above 2133MHz.

I put in the new ram, ran Memtest for 8 passes and got 0 errors. I used my computer a ton over break and only got 1 blue screen. I'm attributing the blue screen to a freak accident. If it happens again i'll give it some actual attention.
Thank you all for you help. Have a happy new year.
