Random Crashes and BSODs

Hey there, I built a PC not too long ago, maybe a month and a half, and i've been getting random BSOD, I did eliminate one, which was "MEMORY_MANAGMENT". Ive never had that BSOD since. I can provide any info required to help me fix this situation. Pleas help!

CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727
HDD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136767

RAM: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314

It normally occurs when i'm playing LoL, Dota, or Starcraft 2. I can post minidump files if needed. It also occurs when just browsing the web, but not as common.

  3. What motherboard do you have?

    Perchance have the adapter plugged into USB 3?

    ...tells me corrupt USB drivers and will keep BSODing until drivers are uninstalled and reinstalled. The wireless adapter more than likely caused this.

    **Also download Memtest86+ and burn .iso and boot to CD/DVD an test RAM.

    http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

    ISO HERE
  4. What adapter? I had an USB2.0 extender plugged in, but only for like 20min, and it didnt BSOD around that time. I'll try to uninstall the USB drivers and reinstall. Ill also try the memtest. Ive also had no wireless adapter plugged-in. Its running on LAN.
  5. What usb device did u had?

    only the usb extender?
    try unplug the usb extender go to device manager and uninstall/disable/online update the unknown/failed device driver....

    btw it better to test each stick of RAM one at a time.....

    Sorry I had this thread mixed up with another similar thread... nevertheless, try Memtest. rdc85 is right about testing each memory module one at a time but I'd test with all installed first just to save time on having to dismantle the case and remove components if it turns out not being the problem.

    The "BAD_POOL_HEADER " is still indicative of corrupt device drivers.
