I've come here as a last resort. I tried updating my drivers, checking my temps, updating the BIOS, removing certain software but nothing will work. Here are my specs: CPU: Intel core i7 3820 GPU: Asus DCU GTX 650 Mobo: p9x79le PSU: Silverstone strider plus 600w 80+ silver Hard drives: x1 Samsung 840 EVO 120GB x1 Toshiba 2.5 Drive x1 Seagate barracuda 2TB CPU cooler: Noctua NH-UDX i4 XEON cooler. I've found and zipped up the memory dump if anyone wants to see it. I hope you guys can sort out my problem. Thanks guys! https://www.dropbox.com/s/1rnndmndgsensz1/bsoddump.zip NOTE: I do not have a malware infection, my antivirus is up to date and I run malwarebytes scans every couple days.

Have you tried running the Windows Memory Diagnostics overnight?

These days BSOD are either driver or hardware related. Hardware causes could be something like faulty memory or dying PSU.

I did in fact run Windows memory diagnostic but it only runs for about 10 minutes. Umm, I did get a PSU spark when I pulled out the power cord, but I've only had the psu for about 1 week.

It's likely either a driver issue, or an antivirus/firewall program. What AV/firewall do you use? Have there been any changes to the PC recently, such as hardware replacements, driver upgrades etc?

I got a new cooler and a new psu. I also use Microsoft security essentials and Malwarebytes as a scanner.

I had a similar one recently when using a bunch of parts.  Had 2 memory sticks from different manufacturers but the same specs.  Turned out to be the memory even though same specs.  Worked well separately but not together.  One was a corsair ram stick and checking on google it was a common problem with that particular one. Works fine on its own but not together.  Normally I always use matched and it shows it is best

But I use the same RAM modules though? EDIT: this is my memory: http://www.adata-group.com/index.php?action=product_feature&cid=6&piid=140

not likely the problem if same and matched but have you tried with just one stick and then just the other to be sure
Worth trying to eliminate the ram as a problem

I guess I could but wouldn't Windows memory diagnostic pick that up?

You have to change the settings (using the funciton keys) to use the more thorough test, not the quick one.

And that PSU spark could have caused some memory problem...

You can also try memtestx86, it's a free bootable ISO image.

Thanks for that, didn't know that.  I've put the Windows memory diagnostic tool on the extensive mode! I'll reply if something happens.

EDIT: The memtest seems to be stuck on 10%

Yes, I've heard of that! Thank you! I'll certainly run it if it continues and there is no other option.

Tried looking up (googling) the Blue screen error codes to see what the problem is?

Is it the same error code each time or different (random) error codes?

They are the same error code every time.
But could you read the memory dump, I heard that can find the issue

It seems the blue screen mainly happens during idle or when the system has been left alone for a bit
