Your pc has ran into a problem and need to restart

So i have a new pc and have been using it fine however (using windows 8) it has started regularly showing a blue screen saying "your PC has ran into a problem and needs to restart" this is quite an irritance and would like help diagnosing the problem.
my system specs as of current are:
i7 4770k @ stock
16gb g.skill trident x @ 2400
maximus 6 formula motherboard
samsung 840 evo 250gb ssd
xfx pro 850watt psu
and some case fans using the integrated fan controller
sorry if in wrong place as i wasnt sure where to place this post.

  1. most likely a ram error, run memcheck to see that your ram is functioning properly. quite a common problem with any ram running over 1866. overclocking your cpu would very likely help, but yeah, get the ram checked, as it is the odd man out in this system.
  2. could you give me a link please as i'm not sure which link i have to download
  3. Sorry for tyhe late reply, but i did run that test and it, said there were no issues. however it hasn't happened since
  4. personally i think windows 8 is shit, because it doesnt let you easily see what is wrong with it. just my opinion and experience though
