Windows 7: BSOD ntoskrnl.exe with different bug check strings every time

Update:

memtest86+ 8 passes completed without any errors

Observations:

Is it possible that the first error was a fluke? Could the ram have been installed poorly (not seated properly) or might dust/debris contribute to the error? So far I have had good stability since running all of these tests and pulling the ram dozens of times but it is still too soon to say (2 days of up time so far). I have attached some information gathered from cpu-z. I was wondering if voltage or timing might be an issue; the bios is currently set to auto detect all settings. It all looks correct to me, however, but I am no expert.

My ram specs: G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B - Newegg.com

***NOTE*** both cpu-z and memtest86+ report the ram model number wrong; I have confirmed the above link is correct by checking the sticker on the sticks.

I wouldn't know if the first error was a fluke, it could be due to poor seated sticks or somewhere in the connection some dust.

Yes to both other questions.

I thought I would follow up since the problem has been "resolved."

Following my last update/post windows was stable for around 20 days and then suddenly I started BSODing frequently with random codes. Over time this got worse and the computer would refuse to run through those initial bios checks when power is first started (memory, cpu, drives, etc).

It seems like it was hardware related, so I simply replaced the motherboard AND memory. I needed the upgrade anyway and the price was right. I will mark this as resolved as well. Thank you for the help.
