    Random BSOD in random times

    Hi, I'm really hoping to solve the problem since it's starting to distract seriously. I think since early summer BSODs been flashing now and then and now more and more often. Naturally I've tried memory solutions found online for memory related BSODs but now the different causes seems overwhelming.
    Don't have the skills to work this out so I need your help.

    Win 10 home 64bit (reinstalled some time ago, did help while, but not so sure how clean install that was)
    asus Z-97 (should support usb3.1, some errors indicate usbxchi error)
    i5-4430 (not overclocked)
    Ram 8GB 1333 (XMP off, wont boot when on) (tried higher voltage)
    asus R9 390X (not overclocked) (drivers reinstalled with DDU)
    2xssd(Kingston) 1xhdd
    Asus mg279 display

    EDIT SOLVED: Replacing RAM solved these problems, no BSOD in 3 days so far (compared to 5-10/day)

    You said "I've tried memory solutions found online for memory related BSODs". What exactly did you try?
    Did you replace the 8GB with a different one?
    Have you run a memory diagnostic? Try memtest86+:

    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    information   Information

    MemTest86+ is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    warning   Warning
    MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

    Note   Note
    MemTest86+ has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    Dump also indicates a problem with your AMD Radeon video card or driver. Try the latest Crimson driver, see if that helps:
    Radeon Software Crimson Edition Graphics Driver Installer for Windows 10 64-Bit

    Sorry for late answer but now I'm working on this again and ram seems(!) to be problem. Replaced 8gb G-Skill with new 2x4gb Kingston and so far so good. No BIOS memory settings changed or so.
    I get back to this after few days but for these random (often memory related) BSODs violated ram seems to be best answer..

    And yes, I believe I have latest graphics drivers installed. Or at least stable ones.
