One very strange thing was that downloads would stop randomly. They wouldn't crash, but simply stall out and the only way to fix it was to pause and resume, which is only possible with certain programs meaning often I would have to restart the download over again. I have had sporadic relapses of this sort of problem but I think they were simply caused by lag that I frustratingly blamed on this issue, so I can say that I am pretty sure this problem has resolved itself. Also I used to blue screen a lot while streaming video, however it was never your typical BSOD with text and a memory dump, but rather a darker blue with dark vertical lines. That issue also seemingly resolved itself but who knows perhaps these things can give insight to what is still ailing my machine.
I suspect RAM or my SSD but have been too lazy/busy to work around these things to try and isolate issue considering I'm really just guessing.
