BSOD problem that I've had for a long time

    Windows 8


    Last few days I have tried memory sticks one by one in the slots and had one stick loop restart in 2 slots, then give instant BSOD in other slot and work fine for 48 hours in the last slot. After 48 hours it worked fine in another slot but crashed in the slot where it had worked for 48 hours. It is really completely random. I also let it stress test with Prime95 on blend while it was working and it ran fine for 3 hours.
    I suspect it's a problem with the motherboard. Would it be possible to test or check the motherboard somehow, or would the only possibility be exchanging it for another one?

    Eh, you could try setting the RAM frequency to 667 MHz. The product page shows SPD to be that, even though they claim tested at 800 MHz, too.

    RipjawsX - F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL - G.SKILL DDR3 Memory

    Since you're having so much trouble, 667 MHz is the way to go, to see results.
