Installed windows 7 ultimate x64 first, had a great time, also intstalled Ubuntu 12.04 64 Bit. No problems for like 3 months.
After installing some Windows update I have had problems with BSOD only ocassionally though.
I have tried:
Memtest: No errors
WD Extended scan: No errors
All drivers are updated(recently)
Also I have been booting to Ubuntu fine no problems
Windows will some times run CHKDSK on start up and then BSOD occasionally. After dealing with this I have installed a fresh copy of windows 7 and I still get the BSOD. My linux partition is still there. I do not believe it is a Error in Hardware since Ubuntu works without fault. I need some serrious help guys. Please

Iterations: 8 Test_Sel: Std Pass: 0 Errors: 1000000 and still climbing
I assume this test result indicates something is wrong with my ram. Does it have to do anything with my CPU cache at all?
I had to switch the ram modules to position 2 and 4 instead of 1 and 3 because my ram would not fit under my Hyper 212 cooler could that be an issue?
Also after further look into my BIOS i saw that my motherboard is trying to run it at a frequency of 1333mhz instead of what my ram is(1600mhz). Could that be an issue as well? I can try to customize the frequency of 1600mhz
Thanks for the reply. If I have bad ram, what would you suggest on getting that would fit under my hyper 212 cooler?
