Your PC is definitely unstable or there is an underlying hardware fault somewhere.

I would love it if it were crash-free. It wasn't. Maybe it doesn't like some of my hardware, maybe not. But it was just unacceptable. This might not be a major issue. It almost certainly isn't. But it is for me, personally.

I was just looking at your computer in your signature, you got 2 different sets of ram installed ? other set is 1600 other is 1333?

this. except the fact that you told EVERYONE to avoid Windows 8 because YOU had a problem with it. I think you would have better luck starting a thread trying to troubleshoot your problems. After a fresh install (not some lil 'refresh' or whatever.) and make sure your hardware settings are at factory (like ram cpu n gpu not being under/overlocked) and that all your parts are sitting right, RAM nice n snug in their housings, gpu too. Some part isn't sitting right, something is improperly set (voltages n whatnot), corrupted install.. whatever is 99% likely on your end, and can PROBABLY be fixed with a bit of time.

I noticed the same thing and am wondering if windows 8 is just more temperamental when it comes to the RAM.

Did you reset your overclocks to stock when you installed? Have you run any disk checks on your hard drives? Have you checked that your install media is error free? If the reset is still being corrupt, your original install is probably borked.

They're both 1600, 9-9-9-24. Don't know why I have it as 1333 and 1600. Sorry if that caused confusion

Did you do an upgrade install or a clean install? Upgrade installs can offer a host of different problems for some people. Clean installs are always the best bet.

The BSODs are definitely caused by something on your end.

It's almost certainly a hardware monitoring tool, faulty driver, or unstable CPU/memory overclock. Bring your hardware back to stock clocks and see if the BSODs stop. If they don't, you have a driver or program that's causing the problem, and go forwards from there.

Pull bios battery, try again with reset settings. If issues, try clean install as upgrades only cause headaches.

Pull out a stick of ram, video card, reset chip, etc and pinpoint the prob, while learning a lil about diagnosing issues
