Windows 7: BSODs from potential hardware issue?

I don't know of a way to tell whether it's the CPU or mobo screwing up.

If a replacement CPU doesn't help, try the motherboard.

Try re installing windows 7, and then go from there if not go with another os like windows xp if that still does not work try puttin new hardware in your computer or take out what you recently put in and return it to the shop:)

AMD responded, asking for the usual stuff, but the guy mentioned it being possible that the processor's memory controller could be causing this. Can anyone elaborate on that and any ways of troubleshooting?

You may try updating your BIOS and resetting your BIOS to defaults.

I installed my OS clean again. Gonna run Prime95 again to see if I still crash.

Also, this may sound totally stupid or crazy or whatever, but is there any chance installing 32- instead of 64-bit would do anything?

Okay, Prime95 passed all test types. I only ran each for a few minutes, but before the reinstall it would crash before even 60 seconds went by. I'm trying to keep from being optimistic but that's really promising. I hope this somehow fixed it. I'll post if I crash again. Going to try running some games. Crossing my fingers.

Talk about jinxing myself, holy balls. 10 seconds into installing a game and my system flashes video artifacts and reboots itself. FML
