Prime blend isn't the end-all stability test, even 24hr+.

Try LinX/IBT with the updated Linpack binaries. Watch temps though, they get hotter than with Prime.

You may be just borderline passing Prime at your settings and thats why you get random BSODs doing other things on the system.

Test RAM with HCI Memtest in Windows using one instance per core/thread. So if you have 3600MB RAM available on an i5, run 4 instances of HCI with 900MB each. 5,000-10,000% coverage with no errors is a good indicator the RAM is stable at those settings.

Also make sure everything is set manually in BIOS or it could change on reboots and then you have no way to narrow down what setting needs adjusting.
