Recent i7 system Crashing, then boot error 0xc000000e

First apologies if this is the wrong section but I cannot find the support section :??:

I am having trouble with my recent build (couple weeks old).

It has crashed 3 times on occasion all while doing the same things:
Listening to music and saving a file with Blender (3d software) (~300mb file) to HDD, saving is usually close to instant.

-At first it will show not responding in my 3d application then windows will not be able to open anything (including task manager) but I can switch between windows and lock(windows+L).
-Eventually the music will lock up (zzzzzzz)
-Google Chrome will pop up a message: to the effect of "the required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of 0xc000000e"
-The system will fall after a moment and try to restart automatically.
-The boot error of 0xc000000e will show until I power off and start the computer again.

-One time my save file was corrupted (or incomplete)

I have run Windows memory diagnostic with no error to report, and also windows check disk on my f3 HDD with not error.

My specs are as:
-Intel Core i7 2600K @41 CPU Ratio with offset -0.065 (mild over clock seems stable, run p95 for 6ish hours and linx with full ram usage 3-4 times)

-OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD 2.5" (Windows 7 64bit installed on here)

-Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ (Data, music and some programs stored)

-Corsair XMS3 memory module 16GB 1600MHz-1.5v (originally asrock had this memory set at 1300mhz, I changed to 1600mhz, and I assure the box for my ram is 1600.)

-ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard

-Sapphire Radeon HD6950 2GB (shader unlocked with flick of switch)

My mind is pointing towards the ram as a culprit for some reason, but I really have no idea.

Would love any help or recommendation for any test to do. Here's hoping to no hardware issue.

Thanks very much!

  1. Actually to add to that:
    I just locked my computer (windows+L) with nothing but google chrome open (was running fine), walk away and come back to the same boot error of 0xc000000e screen. :pfff:
