    Ah that's a very good idea I have a store nearby which allows a 14 day return! I will just make up an excuse like i have ddr2 mobo instead of ddr3 :P I tried both slots in the past fyi but to no avail. But thats a nice idea usasma! Wish i thought of that hah.

    Most stores will either resell the memory, or will ship it off to a recycling center (depending on their agreement with the RAM seller).

    Sadly i dont see any stress.txt file on my desktop. But this is what i got after running Prime95 for a few hours.
    Does this tell what hardware the culprit is? Anything else i can do while running Prime95 again?

    I dont have anything overclocked, The RAM is automatically underclocked though.
    Would it matter if i buy an 8GB PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) RAM to test if my system is stable with a new RAM stick?
    Or should i get RAM that my CPU can hadle at max which is
    PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066)

    Prime95 stresses RAM, CPU cache, and the memory controller.
    The Blend test tortures mostly RAM

    The website states: "Support DDR3 1333/1066 SDRAM"
    That is what I'd get.

    I saw that aswell but If you go to the memory tab on the ECS website of my motherboard it says 1600 and up is compatible?
    ECS Web Site > H67H2-M3 (V1.0)
    Anyway i will get new RAM in about a week and ill report back

    I ran memetest86+ again for 12 passes, roughly 11 hours and it found no errors this time
    But what i did found out my soundcard and all 4 of the the sata-300 slots on my mobo are not working, so i asked for an RMA and it got aproved, let's see if this fixes the crashes, i just hope they send me a complete new mobo

    As usual i will report back if anything new happens, and that ''Mark as Solved'' button is close i hope

    Hello guys, sorry for the delays but as i mentioned i send my mobo for repair.
    The store that i purchased it from could not repair it (the sata3 connectors were broken as i thought) and had no reserve so they were kind enough to give me a new mobo. So i have a completely new brand of mobo.
    But it did not fix the bsod's, so tomorrow i will get me some new ram and hopefully that will fix it.
    I will let you all know in the coming days if that fixes the problems.

    Thank you.

    Hey guys, i've been using and playing with my new ram for about a week now and it has not crashed since!
    Thank you usasma and everyone else for helping me.

    The culprit was a case of bad RAM.
