Repeated BSOD's Windows 7

I had a friend build my brother-in-law a computer, and it keeps randomly getting the dreaded BSOD. It ran Crysis for an hour, and then crashed. I load up email, it crashed. It's got all of the updates and drivers for audio/video/chipset/ etc etc.

Here are the specs:

I don't know anything about PC's, and the guy who built it is usually pretty good at these things, but he is stumped.

Also, memtest and chkdsk came back clean. We're reinstalled OS, and we replaced the motherboard.

Here is the event. All of the events labeled CRITICAL say the same thing, but whenever it BSODs, it's always a different driver or whatever mentioned on the blue screen towards the bottom:

  1. Which exact RAM is in the system? You should manually set the RAM speed, timings, and voltage to their rated values in the BIOS. Memtest86+ is good at detecting faulty RAM, but not great at detecting incorrect RAM settings in the BIOS.
