    I have that same cpu. :) This random crashing sounds like it might be corrupted memory but we need more information. When it crashes what error codes do the Blue Screens give you? Also, what is the make of your RAM?

    How to find and post your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps so that we can read them. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually.

    Faulty RAM

    Your windows is crashed with various bugcheck code such as 19, 1A, 50, 8E and C2. There have 5 minidumps with bugcheck code 1A. Probably the problem is related to faulty ram.
