Ive had problems with crashing since I installed the Customer Preview, I thougt it was going to be fixed with the new release. But It wasn't.

My RAM is fine, I ran Memtest yesterday without any problems.

Intel Core i5 2500k
16GB RAM
Geforce 560Ti

I'm not very good at debugging at this level, so please help me out!

Try using the Windows 7 GPU drivers instead of the 8 ones. Worked for me. :party:

Then it's most likely a hardware problem (although the missing memory dumps could be a symptom of their own)
Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

More info on memory dump generation here: BSOD Crash Dump Generation
CAUTION: Read at bedtime, as it'll probably put you to sleep! :0)

Ive been looking around and it seems that nvidia is comming out with a new driver for win 8 and that should fix the problem.. my computer is doing the same thing.... very frustrating

I have the same problem with the 2500k and the GTX 560ti. I think they're conflicting with each other. Hopefully the new Nvidia drivers will fix the problem!
