Can't seem to find out what is causing my BSOD

Hey guys,
Really hated to start a new thread but I just can't seem to get around this one.

I'm getting random blue screen crashes.
Blue screen is just saying memory dump.
The event viewer gives me this.

"The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000003b (0x00000000c0000005, 0xfffff8000349301e, 0xfffff880063930e0, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: I:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 020914-16489-01."

It's just recently started this.
At first when it would happen it just blue screen then on reboot my monitors would not be setup or arranged in the order I've set or all 3 would be matching. I would have to go into ATI Catalyst and reset my Infanity eye
setup.So I thought bad video drivers. Uninstalled and installed new drivers up to date. Still get it here n there but this time no monitor resets,just gives a buzzing sound with 8bit looking scramble screen then BSOD.

Does it at random times as well.It's not done it during Hardcore gaming yet but sometimes when I ALT TAB out of a game to desktop it will crash mostly on like Battle Field 4 but normal gameplay is fine.Sometimes Blue Screens when opening like media player,steam,and maybe once or twice on just idle or surfing web but all at random,no certain time or order.

Temps also seem fine during a match of BF4 peak temp using cpuid were,

CPU 44c
Mainboard 28c
SB 38c
NB 44c
GPU 71c

I've not tried to reinstall any other drivers yet.Thinking about trying the audio drivers to see if that helps as well.

If anyone has any idea how to fix or tips for me to try that would be great.
PC is about 3 years old now. Just this one problem :( 

My PC specs are,
Windows 7 Ultamate x64
AMD FX 8150 Eight core CPU
ASUS Crosshair V Formula MOBO
4.00 GB 1600 Kingston HyperX RAM
1TB WD Black Edition HDD
Corsair H60 cooling
Corsair HX850 PSU
HIS ATI HD6950 2GB GPU (Using infanity eye 3 monitors 1080p)

Hope this was enough info.
Thanks Guys.

Can you link the model of the RAM?

I suspect you using 1.65 volt RAM . Look in BIOS for an XMP profile for 1.5 volts even if the speed has to drop to 1333 MHz

so you are using 1.65 volt RAM

find an XMP profile for 1.5 volts in BIOS and enable it . See if the problem continues

Alright I'll give it a shot.

Any reason for switching the volts?

It looks like you have a memory error . The reason for that could be that the memory controller on the processor is not handling the extra voltage . Its not designed for it

Alright so I checked out BIOS and I did have it set to 1600 but the volts was saying 1.5,I set it back to defaults.
I've never overclocked anything it's been stock ever since. Never needed to.

I'll play with this for a while. And see what happens.
