I just built my system about a week ago. At first I kept getting constant BSOD. Then I switched the RAM, and problem solved. Now I am getting BSOD again. Not as much as before, but I get about 2 - 3 times a day. The only change I made is added an old IDE hard drive for extra space(Only for media files).

Specs:
- XFX HD-577X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770
- 4GB DDR3-1600 (PC-12800) Gold Low Voltage CL8 Memory Kit (Two 2GB Memory Modules)
- GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
- COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
- AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor
- LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM
- OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ600MXSP 600W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7

In BIOS, I have set the timings to 8-8-8-24, Clocked at X8.00(1600Mhz) and 1.66V

Here's the BSOD

Memtest the ram at default settings.
OZC ram kits have been troublesome for alot of people lately.
Techs at my local store advised me to stay away from it.

I have recently applied for the rebate for both the motherboard and the RAM, but I have not yet mailed in the required documents yet. Will still be able to return them?

I suggest you memtest them first.
Download Memtest86.
http://www.memtest.org/#downiso
ISO
Burn to cd
Load from cd
Test each stick individually.
If there's errors rma your ram making a note that you memtested it/include # of errors.

Thank you so much for your responds. Do you guys really think it's the RAM that's causing all the trouble? The first RAM i got is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , and I got tons of errors when running the memtest.

For the current RAM, I just ran the test when the RAM is clocked at 1600Mhz. I got about 4 errors within test #5. I change it into 1333Mhz, and ran the test for 11:30 hours. I got one error. Here's the picture that i took:


What do you guys think?
