    New build, daily BSOD


    Hi guys. I recently built a new computer and it's been giving me a lot of trouble. I get a crash that says whea uncorrectable error probably twice a day.

    Primarily I use the computer for gaming.

    I'm not sure if this is a problem I can correct myself or if there part is bad and needs to be replaced. Oddly, when booting the screen has a green tint to it when it should be black. As soon as Windows starts the green disappears and everything looks normal. Then bam, another crash.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
