What are you doing when you get a bluescreen? Do you overclock?

A bluescreen is USUALLY RAM, but not always. Is it new? Did you make any changes?

Stock? oc'd? Checked to make sure you try with default speed/timings? Need some info =)
*edit* With my machines, I've found I blue screen less do to ram(when ocing) and get more hiccups/freezes when it comes to memory.

yes, it is most likely memory... It happened to me Many, Many, Many Times before, with mah old HP Slim Computer, every single time it was the RAM so changing the RAM is your best bet.

Yeah it kind of sounds like RAM... Try only using one stick and see if it goes away. Then try the other if it doesn't.

Have you fired up cpu-z and looked to see if its running at its correct speed/timings/rated voltage? Sometimes mobo's just don't set them right automatically. Verify each stick as well, one at a time. If you can borrow a couple sticks as well to factor it out.

See if it makes any difference running the ram at 9-9-9-27. Also try the one stick method. Also run Memtest on them. Or if you have a friend who can lend you a different set of ram that would be an easy way to test things. Also make sure that the motherboard drivers are up to date (from the manufacturer's website).

I'm going to say go with memtest86+ to test for memory.

It happened to me once too. One of my G.Skill modules died after about 3 months, giving me blue screens after 10-30 minutes of use. Ended up testing it and sure enough one module died on me. RMA'ed it and have a working pair now.

Just download memtest86+, burn the ISO and make it bootable and boot off it and wait for it to run through all the tests.
