Windows 7: Variety of BSODs Randomly and Inconsistent Boot On New Build

Variety of BSODs Randomly and Inconsistent Boot On New Build

Windows reports a variety of reasons for Bluescreens, from minidumps these being: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM, BAD_POOL_HEADER, CUSTOM_ERROR, CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, and STATUS_SYSTEM_PROCESS TERMINATED. I also sometimes have issues booting into Windows, where the OS will load but all programs will immediately crash or similar. I'm immediately inclined to think it's a memory issue, but I ran a full memtest and found no errors so my suspicion is that it's caused by a faulty driver somewhere. However, I don't know how to analyse a dump file :/ Any help anyone could give would be appreciated.

All of this is under Windows 8.1, however I experienced identical errors under Windows 7.

Since my dump file collection is too large for the forum, I've put it on my google drive at

Hi YawningAngel. 152 MBs means too large, but small for memory dumps. So assuming those are minidumps?

If so, let us see the most recent dumps only. Of the last week maximum.

Also fill up your system specs.

Hi, I just recently built a computer for a friend, and for the past few weeks it has been getting constant BSODs and I just can't seem to figure it out. I've tested the RAM (which passed) and the HDD (which passed as well). And the odd thing is, is that when I install a fresh OS, it works...
