Windows 7: Random BSOD, DMP file help

Random BSOD, DMP file help

Greetings all

Since building my new pc (specs in profile) i have suffered with random BSOD with various messages including Memory management, System service, PFN list corrupt and a few others.
I had originally put 12gb of ram in the system and after some searching discovered that 12gb was not tested with this board.
after removing 6gb i had no probs for about 2 days. no BSOD nothing, all good.

however this morning i got another BSOD, System Service. now im a bit lossed
having searched the internet i have found out about the dmp files windows creates and was hoping that it would shed some light on the problem but im a bit of a noob at these things and despite searching am not sure how to view the dump files.

i have attached the dump file from today and also 3 from the last day before i took out the ram and was wondering if someone could look and tell me whats going on?

One dump is blaming nvlddmkm.sys, part of your Nvidia Drivers

Possible causes:bad RAM/PSU, incorrect RAM timings/voltages, bad Graphics card, overheating

Uninstall your Nvidia drivers then use driver sweeper to remove the leftover files
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Reinstall your Nvidia drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 260.89 WHQL

Test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

This was likely caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF880049EFE0B, 0xFFFFF880085D7F50, 0x0)
