So my pc runs fine for majority of the time but some days it just gets in a 'mood' and crashes 4/5 times in a day. BSOD memory management most of the time with a variety of others occuring randomly. I've replaced my MB and RAM and the errors still continue. There are no errors I can find using memtest. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

To solve problems we need a partslist,

download hwinfo,
install and open it=click run,
close the top window which is the system summary,
in the main window at the left top click "save report",
at the bottom of the next window check "Summary for Clipboard",
after that you'll see what's in the pc,
copy by clicking "copy to clipboard" and rightclick+paste in your next respons
or use the pcpartpicker to make a list.
Need info about psu so maker+model+wattage.

Can you enable XMP for the ram, it will make it work at rated speed and timings,where the latter might have an effect.

See your cpu runs at 3.9ghz, did you try and overclock it? or is this just a result of turbo? If tried to just overclock it a little undo and test.

There is also a later bios than you have which improves system stability so do suggest to update.

The psu you have seems decent quality,but have also seen people here that had problems because of it. Just see what the above three things bring (testing one after another),but might need to look at this as well.

Thanks for the assist, I have started implementing the above and will let you know how it goes.

No crashes as of yet after doing BIOS update. But time will tell the true story...

On an unrelated note: what would you upgrade first when looking at my system?
