Important info.

Does it crash in either slot, or in a particular slot only?
It it crashes in a particular slot only, RMA the motherboard.

Either you follow Part 3 of How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+ to determine either it is faulty RAM stick or faulty motherboard slot; or you replace the RAM.

Quote:
If memtest starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

If it is a branded computer, then the slotwise memtest process may void the warranty. In such a situation it is better to take it to the vendor.

Did some research on my corsair ram. Apparently bsod is quite common on these particular modules, when booted up from a cold start - so thats why I was only getting the bsod in the mornings after being switched off all night.

More info on it: forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=92663

Be doing RMA, thanks for the replies Arc
