confirmed Ci.dll is now locked into a deadly BSOD cycle, right after bootup and only one time around every time I fire it up.
BSOD KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED 0x0000001e caused by CI.dll

Ok, change again.....
received in the mail a 4 GB stick to replace the bad one and put it in, Memtest86 is ok with it.
no BSOD so far !!! at least not the dependable Ci.dll BSOD that has been happening every time I boot up the last 5 or so times.

Still holding on what's up with the system, but a mem registry twix could have been causing havoc perhaps?

not sure.....

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Are you overclocking?
Code:
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3400
CurrentSpeed: 3410
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Nice. Now let us see how it goes.

Memtest should not be run less than 8 passes to complete the test.
