In a case like yours..I would ask you to report back after a month of observance on how things are with your computer..Just to be sure that everything else with your PC is good. Do you have a cooler btw?

Alright sounds good man, and I have a 200 mm fan at the top of my case, bottom mounted psu, back and front fans and the stock CPU fan, no liquid cooler though however it does sound like a good investment!

The stock Intel coolers are crap. I've used one which was enough, lol. The Ivy Bridge CPUs run much hotter the Sandys. I would recommend any of these coolers:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

hmmm I'm looking towards the cooler master hyper 212 evo, the price isn't too bad and hopefully it works much better than the stock intel one haha, thank you very much for the info I'm looking into getting one asap!

The Hyper EVO will be much better than stock and will a allow some minor overclocking, if you decide too.

Hey it has been a while!
For a few reasons though, for one, I went to buy the cooler master evo but it was out of stock at the store I went to, so I bought a liquid cpu cooler that was on sale:

Antec.com - Product: Kühler H2O 620

So when I asked the guy at the store if it would fit my cpu and mobo the guy said yes, turns out not really, the plate you have to put against the mobo is supposed to be flush against it but I can't really do that on my mobo... have yet to return it to the store to get something that fits...

Even worse, I started getting BSODs yesterday and I still am only this time I'm not gaming or anything...

I get the BSOD's shortly after booting up, trying to update windows, before I can boot up, even in safe mode... ugh

I have no idea why because I didn't change anything between the time it was fine unless playing intense games to the time it started acting up like this...

I will try to get the minidump files up here as soon as I can but I can barely keep the computer running long enough to get them all, hopefully I will soon!

I know that some of the BSODs are different, some system service exception and memory management

Hmm.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Alright, I have reseated my RAM and still got a BSOD but I did manage to grab my dump files which are attached!

So I'm gettin memtest goin and I'll run that all night, I have my suspicions this could be software maybe.... or at least I'm hoping that's the case, because Microsoft Security Essentials won't open, run, or install and the same goes for windows update, started happening as soon as I started getting BSODs... they could be connected and hopefully it's not a harddrive issue since as you know I recently bought a new one

I'm posting on another thread, I will check your dumps soon.

Crashing in safe mode points toward hardware.
