Random BSOD

Ive had a couple of random BSOD's they dont happen running any particular program and not happening all the time. The changes ive had is going from single channel to dual channel ram have tested the ram with the built in diagnostic and memtest. Also added an Asus GTX660TI.

Ok so Three things i notice right off the bat, First your overclocking please stop overclocking this is a likely cause of BSODs.

Second you have an SSD please ensure that the firmware is uptodate for your SSD. And last you have Daemon tools installed this is a likely cause of BSODs please uninstall it then download and run this tool:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

when you run the tool a box will popup the only button in the box you need to be interested in is the Uninstall button, if the button is grayed out then Daemon tools is gone, if it is still click able please click it and let the tool run. when it is finished Daemon tools is completely gone. DO NOT click the install button it will install a harmful driver that is known to cause BSODs.

Ran the removal tool. SSD is up to date even tried with overclocking off.

I believe ive narrowed the problem down to either my gfx card or ram as it seems to bsod when running black ops. If i run chrome then run black ops most of the time it seems to crash straight away. If i reboot without opening anything except black ops it crashes about 1/2 -1 hr into the game. I did change GFX cards without a fresh install of windows so maybe thats part of the problem.
