Windows 7: Random BSOD's - no dump

Random BSODs - no dump

Hello everyone

My current computer (custom build) has been working perfectly for the past 3 years.

(i5-2500k, AsRock P67 Pro3, HD6950, 8GB Corsair Vengeance Ram, 550W XFX PSU, ...., 64GB SSD, 1TB main data disk, 256GB for various media)

However, since 3 days ago I've been getting constant BSOD's. The computer boots fine, but after a maximum of 30ish minutes I'll get a BSOD. The symptoms aren't really clear, sometimes it's under heavy load, sometimes in idle.

I have configured Windows to create the dumpfiles. However, this is not happening. My guess is that the PC is freezing on the the BSOD-screen (given that it's stuck on "Initializing disk for crash dump), as can be seen in the picture.

I've done a CHKDSK of my C: Drive (SSD with OS), which was done during boot. A CHKDSK of the D: and M; drive could not be completed, as BSOD's occurred.

Last night I started checking my RAM with Memtest 86. On my first run I encountered "65535+ errors"' on test #3. It looked like the test froze so I started over on single CPU mode. After 9 hours memtest found one error like this (see image)

I have also included the results of DM log collector as requested.

(My PC actually crashed while writing this post... rather frustrating)

I just ran Memtest for 24 hours (14 passes) on standard mode and didn't find any errors. Should I look for the problem elsewhere?

I attempted a CHKDSK in Safe mode for my main data HDD (samsung f3 hd103sj 1tb - firmware: 1AJ10001 (can't find an update) as it would BSOD in regular mode.

It held out quite long, but eventually BSOD'd anyway. I got the same BSOD (Kernel data inpage error) with an extra mention of volmgrx.sys.....

Again, no dump file.

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...
