Windows 7: BSODs, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, Unstable System

Ran CPU-Z and attached the screenshots. I looked up my RAM, and it is not on the compatible RAM list. I have 4GB of G.SKILL DDR3-1333 (2GBx2). F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT. I am guessing this might be a problem. I am running prime95, and will give it a couple of hours to see how it holds up. Thanks ickymay.

If your ram isn't on the compatible list it could well indicate it won't work with your motherboard but it doesn't mean the ram is bad necessarily

I doubt you want to keep throwing money at possible problems so I wouldn't rush out and buy more ram, but the best way forward would be to try running your system for a while with a stick of ram listed as compatible

Do you have access to any other computers where you could borrow a single stick for debugging ?

at the least I would suggest running with only a single stick of your G-skill to see if that stabilizes things
