Windows 7: BSOD with general use of PC at 8+GBs of RAM

BSOD with general use of PC at 8+GBs of RAM

Hello. Last year I was suffering consistent BSODs for well over a year and a half playing multiple games such as FFXIV and Dota 2. Upon removing one my 4GB RAM sticks (setup was 2x 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 Genesis sticks), my computer was in perfect condition; I could run games at maximum graphics as I should've been able to and I would never crash or BSOD in a game.

Thinking the problem was the RAM stick I removed, I decided to buy myself a fresh 8GB RAM stick with the same MHz as my current sticks (1600MHz) so my PC wouldn't be moving at a snail's pace, as it is now, and be at 12GBs of RAM. However, when I installed the new stick in to the PC, I started crashing and BSODing big time. So, then, I put the blame down to the RAM port, and moved the 8GB RAM stick to where the 4GB RAM stick is now, thinking that that was the only stable port taking me from 12GBs of RAM to 8. However, I begun exclusively BSODing, and very frequently. The BSODs were completely random, sometimes I'd be in a game, sometimes I'd be doing nothing but browsing the internet. I then removed the 8GB RAM stick and replaced the 4GB stick that was working beforehand, and now the PC is completely stable and doesn't crash, like before.

I ran MemTest86+ on my old 2x 4GB RAM stick setup (together and individually) - there were no problems. I have refunded my 8GB RAM stick so I cannot test that now.

Here's my computer's current specs:

Processor:
Intel CoreTMi5-2500k Quad Core (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache) + HD Graphics
Motherboard:
ASUS P8Z68-V LX: USB 3.0, SATA 6GBs, ATI®CrossFireX
RAM:
4GB Kingston HyperX GENESIS DUAL-DDR3 1600MHz, X.M.P (1 x 4GB KIT) [originally 8GB with 2x 4GB kit]
Graphics card:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB running drivers 347.88
Memory:
1TB WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64MB cache (7200rpm)
Power Supply:
Corsair 650W enthusiast series TX650 V2-80 PLUS BRONZE
Processor Cooling:
Titan Fenrir EVO extreme heatpipe CPU cooler
I have attached 14 of the most recent BSOD logs in a .zip folder attached to this post. I really don't know what else to do for this PC at this point. It has been basically 2 and a half years of consistent problems, and despite constant attempts at solving the issue, it definitely still remains. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Apparently it seems that there are multiple issue, and we need to go slow for the troubleshooting.

At the first place, update two drivers.
See how it goes. Report us for any further BSOD with logs.

I've updated both drivers, and have played a few hours of the MMO Blade & Soul and The Division. Blade & Soul seemed stable for the hour or so that I played, but The Division crashed to desktop once, and also made my sound die (major stutters, then all sound+mic shut off), which I could only fix by restarting. Please note that when I'm on 4GBs of RAM, I do not have any problems with either of these games.

Game crash is out of the scope of BSOD. For it, you may use another specified section of this forum.

Report here for any further BSOD. You may try to replicate it by applying that memory which seems to be unstable to you and let us see the log.
