Hey guys, So today I was just messing around on the computer and I left it idle for a little over 20 minutes and when I can back I had a BSOD. It said that there was something wrong with the power or something I didnt really read it, But under that it said to check any new hardware that you have installed recently, the only thing I have installed was a new CPU cooler so I don't think that is the root of the problem but when I installed the CPU cooler I did have to move my two ram sticks from the 1 and 3 slots to the 2 and 4 slots because the fan was too big. Do you guys have any idea why I got a BSOD??? this is the first time and if it helps I have a 650 power supply and a i5 2500k with a amd 6950 graphics card.

Without more specificity, there's no way to know. Since you just moved your RAM, that could be the root of it. You might try running memtest and see if it reports any problems.
