Hi everyone, I built my first computer last summer and recently I decided to add more memory. I started at 8gb and decided to upgrade to 16gb, 4gb x 4. Everything worked fine when I booted up my system initially, my computer recognized the additional hardware and everything was running fine. Then randomly my computer blue screened after about 5-6 hours of use while I was using my internet browser. The same thing happened the next day, a blue screen after many hours of use, this time while playing a game. I took out the new ram to make sure I didn't knock something else loose while installing the new ram and everything was fine, no BSODs. I figured one of the sticks must be bad so I sent them back and had them replaced. I installed the new ones in last night and the same thing is happening again, so I'm confused as to what the problem is. Is it my computer or the new RAM sticks or possibly I don't have something set correctly or maybe a software issue? Anyway I read through the "How to ask for help with a BSOD problem" thread and put together a zip file with all my computers information and dmp files. And here are my CPU-Z screen shots. Thank you very much for any help in advance, it's awesome that forums like this exist.
