    So, I took a quick peek at your dumps and it appears to be a driver issue; however, I don't have the proper dump analysis programs in place to (possibly) identify the specific driver. I'm hoping that usasma will jump in on this thread and lend a hand with the dump analysis. He is exceptional in this area BTW.

    Anyway, I would still check the following:

    In BIOS:

    Disable XMP profiling and retest
    Switch from Turbo to Normal

    See if that fixes anything.

    My system crashed in Safe Mode with Networking.

    I've also tried with the memory setting at Normal instead of Turbo and it crashed too.

    Now I'm testing with XMP on at Profile 1.

    This may sound crazy but it has happened here before....

    Is your motherboard screwed down into the case with metal screws or just plastic clips?

    Screws would be preferable..

    Just make sure the number of screws match the number of posts, easy to miss one..

    The old school way to verify bad RAM is to pull out all the RAM except for 1 stick and put it in slot A1. Then run Memtest86+ for 4 passes. This will take a lot of time (6-12 hours) for each stick. After the 4 passes and no errors, shut down, pull RAM out and set it aside. Then do the same thing for each remaining stick of RAM. If you have a bad stick of RAM it will tell you with a lot of errors and then just trash it.

    Oh...just a thought..when you installed the new mobo and CPU, did you install all the necessary drivers for it. Is there a BIOS update as well.

    All my drivers are up to date as well as the BIOS, although I didn't install the beta BIOS.

    I'll rerun MemTest the way you described.

    Thanks for the input.

    Before rerunning MemTest, I'm testing with bare minimum hardware : CPU, mobo, heatsink, PSU, 1 RAM module, SSD, optical disc...

    I'll see how that goes...
