Windows 7: BSODs, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, Unstable System

Rebooted, tried again. Some errors, but this time went to BSOD Bad_Pool_Header. Guess it wasn't the SATA cable. I feel like this is probably a hardware issue.

Now I got an APX Index search error. For some reason it doesn't recognize my network connection either. Won't stay on for longer than a minute or two.

G Skill DDR3-1333
2GBx2
9-9-9-24 1.5V

I am running it at 1.76V, and it is more stable.
I have already had to return one pair, but this pair seems to work fine. I will run memtest this afternoon and see what happens.

G. Skill is usually good ram that's what I'm running also, your giving it plenty of voltage it would probably take 1.9 or even 2.0 what speed does is register at 1333 or lower

It registers at 1333, but I ran memtest overnight and discovered 10 errors. All in the same Bits too. I think I will try taking one stick out, running it, and then try the other, and see if the errors are due to one stick.

If the memory is being run @ stock it should show NO errors. if it does, we need to examine why. Is it memory, heat, or OC?

The memory is being run at stock timings, and 1.76 volts, which is more than 1.5, but previously it eliminated errors.
Now here is an issue. I ran memtest on each stick. One made 32 passes, no errors. The other made 11 passes with 700,000 errors. Just to check, i put the good stick back in, and tested it. To my surprise 14 passes, 12 errors. Does this mean my motherboard is bad?
