Anyway I believe that my ram is the culprit. When I first had RAM timings set to the one specified by the RAM developer I was getting BSOD. After I've lowered the ram frequency from 1866 to 1333 I had no BSOD for 4 months. Now after I've tried to use the XMP option in bios which sets the same timings as I've set the first time and also set the ram frequency to 1866 the BSOD happened the next day.
Any opinions about this?
The amount of times I've seen XMP cause BSODs...
It really sounds like your memory can't do 1866, not that there is much point to it over the standard 1333 anyway, except for the bragging rights.

Its about 1% the CPU and 99% the bad clock speed on the RAM, I would say.
