Windows 7: Freezing and BSOD

Hmm... This is starting to sound like a hardware issue. Since your system was built in March, this is very possible. This has been happening for about two weeks now?

Is the inside of your computer dusty?
Can you post temps using a temperature monitor (HW monitor, SpeedFan, etc)?
Can you run MemTestx86 overnight (or several passes)?

I agree with LiquidSnak. Run Memtest for at least seven passes from a cold boot after your computer has been off for a while. This will take 6-8 hours. Follow the instructions in this tutorial: RAM - Test with Memtest86+. Post your results.

OK Temps after about 1hr use:
CPU: 38C
Motherboard: 30C
Graphics: 45C
Hard Drive: 28C

It probably is quite dusty as I have never cleaned it out. I will try to a memtest later on.

They do look good, esp. for an intel board. I have the luxury of running ~20C though lol. Let us know about memtest.

Ok on the 7th pass there was 1 error in memtest.

this is the details that i noted down from it:

000157726d8 343.4mb
Good: 00000010
Bad: 00080010
ErrBits:00080000
Count: 1

i havent had a chance to follow what the instructions have said to do (switching the RAM around) but i havent had another crash yet.

Sounds like a bad stick of ram. Try them one at a time as per instructions to narrow down the bad stick or slot, and then an RMA might be in order.
