Need Help: BSoD Page Fault in nonpaged area

So I built my own PC back in July. I have been getting the blue screen from the first day I built it. I didn't have a lot of time to look into it with two jobs and just not using my PC that much. Now that I use it daily it is quite frustrating having to boot up twice almost every time. I had assumed it was one or both of my RAM sticks. So I took one out and booted up, resulting in the blue screen. So I swapped them out and tried again and it booted fine. I did a few reboots and spent about three hours on the one stick and still no blue screen. The weird part is when I run memtest86. The stick that blue screens gets no errors, but the one that runs fine got over 200K errors in about 15 minutes. Now I am really confused on what to do or try. Can anyone help me on what it could possibly be or what to try next?

My specs are:
2x4GB G. Skill Sniper 1866 RAM
AMD FX 8350 Black edition
MSI 970A-G46 Motherboard
Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Graphics
1TB Seagate HDD
Corsair CX600M PSU
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Make sure that you have MSI UEFI firmware revision number 2.5 installed.

You can find that here

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/970A-G46.html#/?div=BIOS

Firmware revisions often improve support for memory, especially memory that uses non-JEDEC timings

Ok I just updated my BIOS to the lasted firmware of 2.5 and it still blue screened while loading the desktop lastnight. I turned my computer on this afternoon and checked BlueScreenViewer and it now gave me this error:

Reduce the speed of the memory to DDR3-1600 at standard timings (try 9-9-9-24, or whatever profile is on the SPD) and see if that helps. If it's still not stable, RMA the memory.

Ok I tried both methods on the site and I also tried running it at the 1333 settings and it is still not stable. Guess I will just RMA them. How long does it usually take to get the new RAM? With me being in college I don't want to be without my computer for to long.

If you are in the US, generally it will take about a week for you to receive new RAM back once we receive the RAM from you.

Thank you

Here is the guide for DDR3-1866:

http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=11742

To determine whether a memory module may be bad, test each individually with DDR3-1333 8-8-8-24 1.50V settings. They should run flawlessly, if not, feel free to send in for RMA exchange.

Thank you

If they run flawlessly on their own with these settings, is it safe to run them both at the same time then?

Yes, if both run fine individually, they should work fine together as well.
