Hello,

Im new to this site so i hope im doing things right.
My problem started today when i disassembled my computer to clear out the dust (oh my god so much dust)
When i put it back together, i started getting constants BSOD, (IRQL, page fault, drivers, etc), i was going to format anyway so i started in safe mode (got i few bsods but managed to log in) backed up important data in an external hard drive, and made a fresh clean windows 7 x64 install.
Now i randomly get IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSODs. i read that it can be caused by faulty memory, but memtestx86 showed no errors.

My computer:

MOBO: ASUS Crosshair V Formula
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz Deneb
Memory: 6GB (3x2gb) Kingston KVR1333D3N9/G2
Graphics: nVidia GT 430
Storage: HDD WD 1TB black

Remove one at a time and see which is the dodgy one...

Random BSODs are a good indicator of CPU instability, are you overclocking at all?

No, everything is at stock speeds.

Has it been overclocked in the past?

Probably didnt have it pushed into its socket all the way if it suddenly startsw giving you errors after taking it out and cleaning the inside.
