I had been getting some random, fairly infrequent crashes in Windows so I ran a Memtest and it failed. I had the timings at 7-7-7-18 or something like that so I reset everything back to stock. Still failed. I tried both sticks one at a time in different slots and it still failed. Since I had the voltage at 1.71V and had been experiencing the problem for a while I figured I had burnt out both sticks. I wanted to run more memory which required a new mobo so I replaced that too. Now I am still failing Memtest and get occasional crashes. In Windows I get a BSOD.

There are three things I suppose could be responsible: bad power supply, bad memory controller in the processor or some issue with the 120V coming out of my wall. Any thoughts?
Sorry I wrote a short novel. Thanks for reading.
