Win 7 64-bit BSOD

Hi All,

I've been having random BSOD's since upgrading to Win 7 64-bit (never had a single BSOD while using XP Pro for over a year).
I've had pretty much every BSOD error message I've ever heard of in the last two months, quota manger, cache manager, bad pool caller, system thread, irq less than equal to, changes to system files, the list goes on...
The BSOD's can happen as often as two in a row, or as little as once every week, the reason for them (according to the minidump analysis) ranges from MSN and Firefox to svhost.exe and other windows services.
I've scanned my HDD with MHDD and found no slow/bad sectors, I've posted on the Corsair forums, tested all my ram (1 stick at a time in different slots) with Memtest and had no errors.
I've run stress tests with Everest for a few hours and had no crashes, I've also updated all my drivers (using Driver Genius).
MSINFO32 and Device Manager don't show any problem devices or drivers and my PSU (850Watt) is solid.
The only thing I haven't changed is my OC'ing (but this was stable under XP - 5 hours of stress testing with Prime95).
Short of a total re-image/wipe any ideas? If you like i can upload my dump files. PC Spec below.

Any help is appreciated, cheers.

If you have onboard sound, try this if you're willing

Remove your X-FI sound card, see if it goes away.

I'm not sure if this will work, but... In the World of Warcraft forums at one point there were a lot of people complaining about Win7 crashing. They all seemed to have difference CPUs/Video cards/etc, but they did seem to all be sporting Creative sound cards.

It's worth a shot and I'm curious if this actually works.

Thanks for the reply.

I'll do that and see how it is over the next few days, and report back either way :)

No joy, I uninstalled all the Creative software, used driver sweeper to remove anything left over - Been using the on board sound for two days and had my first BSOD today (minidump below)

A fresh re-install of the Win 7 64-bit with nothing but the windows drivers installed caused the same errors as before, even a second install of it with the latest downloaded drivers also saw random crashes.

I installed the 32-bit version and haven't had a single crash. This leads me to believe that there is a part of my HW or maybe the 4x1GB sticks which are causing issues in 64-bit.

Anyway, thought I'd add that in the event anyone else has the same issues and can't resolve them.
