I have been getting random BSOD's on the system i built today. Usually when playing games or doing some installation etc. I am attaching a dump file. My specs are:

Intel i5 2500k
Gigabyte GA-z68MA-d2h-B3 motherboard
Patriot sector 5 RAM 4 GB
Radeon 5870 1 GB DDR5

1 TB Samsung F3 drive
2 TB Samsung drive

Have no idea where to begin but i'm attaching a dump file. Please help!!!

Can you give more information? Is your system overclocked? Have you tested your RAM?

Think its a memory problems. try running memtest and see if u get any errors.

Also try running the RAM at prescribed voltages and settings an frequency.

Could it also be a defective motherboard? How often is a BSOD related to a defective motherboard?

I've ordered another memory lets see if that one works out will post back.

So I finally try switching the RAM and hasn't seen a BSOD in about 24 hours now. Hopefully the issue is resolved. Thanks for your help guys

Only the kernel file of windows showed up so your ram is the first suspect. Have you tried setting it manually in the bios?
