I've been doing everything I can to fix my problem but I can't seem to get this system stable. I'm thinking it's a memory issue, and it's been suggested to me but setting the RAM to the suggested settings gives me countless errors in memtest.
I updated my ram frequency and voltage to 1600mhz and 1.66volts. The QPI voltage. 1.35 and the timings to 9 9 9 24. This caused a multitude of errors in memtest. At 1600mhz 1.66volts and Auto for voltage and timing. Memtest passes.
At 1600mhz and 1.66 volts windows memory diagnostic says I have hardware problems and should contact my vendor. Window memory diagnostic passes everything at default settings. I've posted my system specs below.
Any help you guys could give me would be much appreciated.

It could be many things causing your BSOD issues. I think you may be correct that it is a RAM issue. You are using MEMORY: 12GB (2GBx6) DDR3/1600MHz Triple Channel Memory Module (Corsair Dominator (CM3X2G1600C9D6). I could not find that memory on the verified memory list from Gigabytes web site. It recommends 1.5V DDR3 DIMM http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_g...
Just to be safe, make sure that your drivers are up to date before you replace your RAM. Also keep you RAM votage to Auto. You MB should detect and use the correct voltage. Your MB is looking for 1.5V Ram and it is seeing 1.66V. Good Luck.
