Built my PC from scratch and it BSOD's like crazy. But only on Windows 8 and so I would like to know how to debug my own debug files using BlueScreen view in order to figure out what the fix is. Half the time it just tells me it was caused by some generic kernel and many people on the internet say that's just a generic umbrella point which doesnt actualyl point to the fault.

I have run a memtest multiple times and bought new ram and yet problem still exists. 

Halp? How do I figure out what exactly is ailing my PC..
