So, I was getting the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR whenever I played BF3, I did some research about it and tried a lot of different stuff. Eventually, I stress-tested my RAM (w/ Prime95) and found out that it was the cause (every time I stress tested it gave me the BSOD). I'd like to know how to fix this issue since I just built this rig and want to start enjoying it ASAP. Thanks in advance.

What are the detailed specifications for your system? Please list all components (make/model) you are using?

Also, are you overclocking anything (CPU, GPU, memory)?

Thank you for your response.
No, I'm not overclocking.
Intel Core i7 4770K 3.5GHz
Asus Maximus VI Hero
16GB 160MHz Corsair Vengeance
GTX 780
2x (RAID 0) WD Re 4 1TB
Corsair CX600M 600W

Edit:
This might be helpful:
When I stress test in "blend mode" I get the BSOD after a while.
When I stress test in "In-place large FFTs" my computer reboots almost instantly (without BSOD).

I've finally found a solution.
In my case the problem was with the Intel Speed Step and Intel C Step technologies, which I've disabled in the BIOS. However, this problem can also be caused by a mal-functioning hard disk, sudden power loss and Windows errors.

Just picked up my PC from the shop. They updated the CPU driver. Claims success. Time will tell.
