(apparently) Random BSOD out of nowhere starting today

Hi guys

I just built a new custom pc. Been working fine for a week, but today I got 2 BSOD and I can't figure out what happened. I installed a new game today (that was the only change I made before the BSOD began) and I already uninstalled to check wether or not they will stop.

In the mean time, I will provide the file from the log collector so someone better than me can check it out and maybe help me out.

All the hardware is brand new btw. I can post specs if it help

Thanks

Edit 1: just ran windows memory test and it found no memory error

Hello, ChikCen and welcome to the forums. I will try to help you. You only had 2 Dump Files, both dated 6/16. These are the results.

Code:
Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
BugCheck A, {fffffa801aa57010, 2, 1, fffff8000319ad36}
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiReleaseConfirmedPageFileSpace+86 )
Followup: MachineOwner

Windows Memory Diagnostic is not very good or comprehensive.

Please Run Memtest86+



information   Information
Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip


Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 consecutive complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 consecutive passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I would expect your 12 Gb of ram to take 14-15 hours to run the minimum 8 consecutive passes So it would probably be easier to start at night and let it run all night.

Hi, thanks for the answer. I will run that test overnight today and post the results.

Btw, my 12gb of ram is from 2 sticks from Corsair Vengeance, but 4gb (1x stick) of those clock a different speed (I bought them at different times and didn't match the speed unfortunetaly), can this possibly be the source of the problem?

yes, it could. It is never a good idea to mix ram. You should always use a kit of ram. But, run the test anyway.
