BSOD problem,Ram issue,Graphics card Overheating!

Recently i have built myself a PC with the following specs:
Intel i7 860 2.8Ghz LGA1156

Asus P7P55D

CD-RW Drive

1HDD 500GB Standard SATA

VTX3D Radeon HD7770 X-edition V3 1GBGDDR5

14GB RAM (Setup: 2x8x2x2) 1333Mhz

CIT Vantage Type-R Gaming Case (Red) 4 Fans-120mm

500W PSU OCZ CoreXStream Series

So the problems are:
1.While im playing games at some point (usually 5 mins after i start the game)i get A BSOD for reasons that i dont know?
2.For some reason my PC says that i only have 4GB available Ram when i have the 14GB installed?
3. My graphics card seems to overheat a bit, at idle it sits at around 50C but when gaming i get around 75C sometimes oven 80!

If anyone knows a solution to these problems or at least one of them it would be a great help :)

  1. 4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2200(O.C.)*/1600/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory
    Dual Channel memory architecture

    WHAT IS THAT??... ''14GB RAM (Setup: 2x8x2x2) 1333Mhz''
    better to install only the 2X8gb memory stick in dual channel

    That is how i have my ram in my motherboard 2 then 8 then 2 then 2 so it adds to 14 either way after messing around with the ram i have finally sorted it out, i just re-arranged the ram so now windows fully detects all 14gb and all 14gb is now usable :) as for the BSOD its the actual graphics card fault as it overheats and causes windows to cut the power to stop any major damage, the only solution to this is to change the GPU cooler or upgrade to a different graphics card.
