BSOD random crashes


I just built a new rig and I am getting BSOD crashes after about an hour of use. Here is the system information:

intel i7 2600 processor
asus P8Z68-V LE motherboard
16 gig memory
1 tb hd
EVGA GTX 580 graphics card

retail OS. Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

The system was just built today.

Any help will be much appreciated. As far as it looks to me, it appears there is a problem with accessing the memory. I could be totally wrong but I'm sure you guys know much more about this stuff than me. Appropriate are files attached.

You dont have any minidumps in your folder.

To enable minidumps follow this tutorial.

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

After this we must wait for a new crash\bsod,then you have to reupload the crash\bsod files.

If you use any hard disk "cleaner" like ccleaner stop,during "cleaning" you clean\delete also the minidumps.

Thanks for pointing that out. I looked into the error codes a little more and checked out the memory with memtest. Turns out my memory was bad. I think the motherboard clamps for the memory are a little to spacious and it allows the card to move in and out. I made a quick fix to it and memtest seemed to run fine last night. I only was able to run it for about 20 minutes though so I am going to test it further tonight. Thanks for the reply!

You are welcome.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Let it run until at least 7 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.
