Windows 7: Random BSOD at Desktop, Web Browsing

Random BSOD at Desktop, Web Browsing

Dear sevenforums community,
I'm having random BSODs just browsing internet or with the PC idling and I can't seem to get it stable.
This occurs with multiple BSOD messages, as I can recall, IRQ_EQUAL_NOT_LESS, MEMORY MANAGEMENT, etc.

I haven't oced any of the components and loaded optimized defaults.
I've loaded Ram XMP Profile at BIOS and updated to F5 Bios from the motherboard.

I've installed all drivers from the Motherboard CD-ROM, but I'll try to download the newest ones from Gigabyte website.

Please, your help would be appreciated.

Hello Nick, all of your dumps point towards memory_corruption as the problem. Aside from ensuring all of your drivers are up to date, especially your video card, I would run Memtest86+

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

This needs to run for at least 8 passes or until you receive an error. Whichever comes first. This will likely take several hours and is recommended to do this over night. If you have any errors, it is likely that your Ram is going bad.

I forgot to tell that Motherboard, CPU, RAM and VGA are all brand new.
Last night I left Memtest86+ running, it completed 4 passes without any errors.
This is really weird.

Thanks for your quick reply, Gator.
I'll try letting it run for 8 passes and post my results.

I ran the tests as Gator recommended and I finally could determine the faulty stick.
One of them gave errors with 4 passes and 8 passes with JEDEC and XMP specs.

I'll be returning the pair to the vendor for RMA.
Thank you all.
