Hello all, I recently built a new computer and I am getting destoyed by BSODs' they usually happen right about 30 secs after I boot the computer into windows. They say DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL. I've tried updating drivers, etc, but it crashes before I even get the chance to do anything. I am currently running memtest to check my memory and I will post the results after.

Specs:
MOBO: Asus Sabertooth Z77
CPU: Intel 3770k 3.5ghz
GPU: GeForce GTX 670
MEM: 8G G.Skill Sniper 1866
PSU: Corsair 750AX

I checked the memory with memtest and it came up with over 4k errors within 11 minutes, ran more tests and came up with the same results. I sent the memory back to get a replacement and I will post if that solves all the issues.
