    Info attached. Anyone know what caused this?

    I was playing Mass Effect 3 at the time.

    RAM Clock incompatibility, most probably.
    Your RAM runs at ......
      Speed                         2933MHz
      Manufacturer                  G-Skill
      Serial Number                         
      Asset Tag Number                        
      Part Number                   F4-3000C15-8GTZB
    Which your motherboard does not support. It supports: In those latest systems like Skylake, the RAM is controlled by the CPU, your CPU supports: IMHO it would be safe to use a 2133 MHz RAM module.

    So is that literally the only thing it could be? No other possibilities?

    Other possibilities are there, but as this one is prima facie, it should be taken care of. A hardware incompatibility is not desirable, and it alone can cause the BSODs.

    Okay, so a bit of background on the RAM. I deliberately bought DDR4-3000 memory because I wanted fast RAM. I enabled the XMP profile but found that @ 3000Mhz, sometimes the PC wouldn't POST. However, at 2933 it always POSTs.

    I would be willing to drop it to 2800 if you think that would be worthwhile.

    Can you drop it to 2133? Will your Rapjaws support it?

    Yeah, 2133 is stock (XMP disabled). If that's what it'll take for stability then, fine, but I would like faster memory if poss.

    2133 is way faster.

    Get back to it. See how it goes. If it still BSODs, let us see another log.
