BSOD when pc is 'cold'

My newly built PC goes BSOD 1 or 2 times during the early 15 minutes or so, but it ran fine hours afterwards. At first, I thought it was a coincidence, but this happens every day for the past week.

I got the hyper 212+ with no overclocking yet, so temps shouldn't be a problem. Especially since hours of gaming doesn't crash it.

What could be the cause?

Bios settings are almost certainly your problem. Your RAM wants 1.65V and I bet your motherboard is only giving them 1.5V by default. Try setting the bios RAM settings manually to match the RAMs specs.

Thanks, you just saved me lots of time. It's been stable ever since I changed the voltage in bios.
