I built myself a computer last year with following specs:
Phenom II 1090t x6
2 xfx radeon hd 6870 (one 1 gb gddr5 the other 2gb)
12 gb (3x4 gb) patriot memory
ASRock 970 xtreme4 motherboard

I have vista 64 running on it, but i've been getting Blue Screens all along after certain amounts of gaming. Since I am finally inspired to do something about it, I'm bringing it to you guys!

I get the following error report after I reboot.

Best solution

yes this is what i am looking for. this seems to be a memory (ram) error although i cannot be sure until you run memtest. please do this as soon as possible and you do not need to wait for the whole test to finish. if it comes back with even one error then we know it is the memory. download memtest here and i find it easiest to download the version for usb and then boot off that because it saves burning a disk.

quick question, do you think that this could possibly be a problem with the memory overheating? i have a standalone ram cooler, but due to the composure of my build, it gets in the way of my hyper 212+...

chances of it over heating are not very likely. ram usually dissipates the heat quite well
