Windows 7: BSOD again

Yes, they are all patroit RAM, I purchased 2 identical kits at the same time.
When I was using the previous motherboard I never had such issues. (p5q pro before RMA first time)

Before the P5Q pro, it was in another motherboard, also no issues at all. Ran fine for more than a year without BSODs.

Either sticks are bad, or they were somehow improperly installed that time it showed errors, or might be something with the motherboard - I'm viewing the first 7 pages, how about bios upgrade?

I had these problems using the latest bios, and I downgraded to 2nd latest one and still having the same issues.
I don't think they were improperly installed because it would run fine for a few days and these errors will then pop up.
The computer isn't moved and it's just located on a table top, so no one would kick it. Or even move it.
I'm stumped lol.

Cybercore, I ran the computer for 14 days.

During these 14 days, if the computer was running fine for a few hours, it'd run well for a few days.

If I restarted it and it started BSOD/freezing, it'd continue freezing.

Yesterday I downgraded from the latest bios to one that was released sometime in dec 2008, I think it was 3rd or 4th latest version.
And I am running memtest, its been 17 hours now and no errors.

Previously, I think the 2 latest bios versions have problems.

Because even when I have not done anything to bios except move NB voltage to 1.2, it would give me an error at boot stating overclock failed.
And told me to press F1 to enter bios for setup, or F2 to set to default values.

Furthermore, once when I entered bios, I saw a smiley face, on AI.
Meaning the A became a smiley face. So I suspected that its probably a bios problem.

Now the memtest is still running, since I downgraded the bios, i will run it for 24h and report back.

Memtest has been going on for longer than 24h and no errors. Could this really be a corrupted bios provided by ASUS?

I'll let it continue running over night and check again tomorrow morning. By that time it'd be close to 34h.

Well, the memtest doesn't say much, because win7 just froze again today.

And now I can't start the computer. It powers up, fan runs and nothing else. No post, no beep, no response on screen.

Now I can't even run memtest without it crashing.

It has crashed 3 times
1) i got 'interrupt error' and the thing froze.
2) Instead of showing me what RAM i had installed, the lower portion of the screen turned into lines of smiley faces
3) The whole screen showed vertical coloured lines
