Windows 7: Various BSODs are back, not consistent, seems random

Did you run memtest (post #42)?
The board may be OK, wrong RAM settings can make it seem bad. Make sure you have your RAM set to the specs on the label, this is low voltage RAM so double check that setting, 1.5V.

Then run memtest as per the tutorial.

Yeah the RAM is running at the correct voltage and speeds. I recently changed the setting for the RAM to XMP settings, but it made no difference with respect to blue screens. It's still running at XMP. I've ran memtest for 7 passes with both sticks in, I can try putting a single stick in different slots if that will help with anything.

I put new memory sticks in and haven't had any problems since. It's too bad memtest didn't pick the errors up, however when I tried memtest5.0 beta it picked up errors, but reading the forum there led me to believe they may have been bugs. Thanks for the help though guys.
