ntoskrnl.exe bsod

Built my pc a few months ago. Bsod's have been randomly occurring. Ran a memory diagnostic test and no errors came up. Ordered more ram to swap out the old pair of ram and still had bsod. However, since I'm not sure if it is really the ram that is bad, I put all four sticks of ram in my pc and now I haven't had any bsod plus games are running without crashes. I figured not enough ram was the problem but have found out that lack of ram would not cause bsod. Hopefully I have no bsod but just in case I wanted to see if anyone could help me finding out what was causing the problem in the first place by looking at my minidump files. I'm not sure exactly how to interpolate but have noticed the same ntoskrnl.exe.

System Info:

motherboard GA-990FXA-UD3
phenom II X4 955 3.2ghz processor
G.Skill ripjaws series 16Gb (4 x 4gb) 240 pin ddr3 1333

evga gtx 560 video card

any help will be very much appreciated
