Frequent BSOD since reinstalling Windows 7 while browsing internet

In most cases this is a simple situation and it's easy to figure out one stick or another.
Unfortunately in your case, it's not gonna be that easy.

There's a lot of different factors involved in memory errors - the most common being the RAM, then CPU, the memory controller (either on the CPU or the motherboard), and the motherboard itself. Add to that the fact that most video cards have their own memory - and the problem becomes difficult to solve.

I still suggest returning both - as that'll give you a fresh set to start off with - and that will rule out the RAM if the BSOD's don't stop.
Just FYI - there are no 100% sure-fire tests for motherboards.
There are some CPU stress tests that might give us more info. They're listed at the end of the page here: Hardware Diagnostics

My concern here is that we can't pin the problem down to one stick or one slot - so it may be that the problem isn't in the sticks/slots.
If that's the case, we'll have to start looking at the CPU or motherboard.

Just a thought, but have you checked the temps inside the case? The easiest way to do this is to point a house fan blowing into the case and see if that slows down the BSOD's. You can also feel around inside the case after a BSOD (unplug from the wall before reaching inside and hold onto the metal of the case with one hand) - but BE VERY VERY CAREFUL!!! I have gotten 2nd degree burns from feeling around inside cases. DO NOT TOUCH anything - only come close enough to feel if it's hot!

Will post the BSOD info in the next post.....

The pattern of these memory dumps is strongly hardware related.
Not only does one of them state "hardware", but there are very few 3rd party drivers in the memory dump (could be Windows also, but that's less likely than a hardware problem), and the memory dumps aren't consistently one error code (a symptom of hardware problems is random BSOD error codes and causes).

I'd suggest updating your USB 3.0 drivers as they date from 2010 - but beyond that there's no evidence of a 3rd party driver problem.
