I stopped after 4 and a half passes with no errors. What to try next?

No mate you have to run at least 8 passes I know it is tedious but it need that many to get any results. If the errors do come up before the 8 passes have been done then you can stop and then you will have to find which stick it is that is failing.

Sorry mate there is no easy way around that test.

The good news is it may very well be the hard drive. It crashed after barely playing the other day, and the same thing happened today after a half hour. Switched drives and play for hours with no issue.

Thanks, I will give that a go. I want to try using this good drive with the SATA port the possibly bad one was hooked up to, just incase it is a weird mobo issue. The only reason I suspect that is because of the freezing when opening SeaTools when both hard drives were plugged in. Just seems odd to me.

Hopefully it isn't a mobo thing mate and the bad drive could just be interfering with the system in all probability.

And it looks like it was not the drive, as I just crashed again. Hooray.

Edit: While watching a video in VLC. Doesn't seem like it was too demanding of any resources or even of my HDD.

It is also worth noting that I am running the OS on a new SSD and the file I was playing was on the HDD, the one I assumed was good...I really am stumped.

It also sucks that this happens only about once a month, and is nearly impossible to reproduce.

Passed Memtest86+ again, 8 passes and 0 errors. I do not believe it can be the GPU as I push this thing to full load for really long periods of time with no error, and it is weird that this BSOD happens once a month. The CPU was not in heavy use either during the last crash, so I figured it could be the RAM since the system would be using some of it at least for Windows. So now I am confused and really do not think it can be any of my components. Unless it is the motherboard, but I have no idea how to test that.
