I have a homebuilt system and a reoccuring problem. My computer won't start, not even in safemode. The way I fix it is to unplug the powercord from the back and wait a few minutes. Then the computer starts fine. This blue screen of death seems to happen after a random number of computer start ups. Usually about once or twice a week. Initialy I thought I had put together something wrong so I took everything apart and rebuild it but that didnt fix the problem. Also my computer runs fine, just once in awhile i have to unplug the power cord.

You might start by taking the battery off of your motherboard to clear the cmos than boot into the bios. It looks like everything you have is compatible, so I would check the timingand power voltage to your ram, etc. It doesn't sound like a short or anything like that, but I know that some mobo's have had cold start issues too.
