Hey guys, I've just built a new computer using the EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR Socket T (LGA 775) NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel motherboard. Well it runs fast but I've got two major problems listed below. Also at the lower half of this post I have all the components listed that are in my new computer. I also have several BIOS settings. At the very bottom I have what I've tried and realized isn't the problem
Whenever I try to install a newer game on either of my optical drives I get a CRC error, here is the error that I get with F.E.A.R:
CRC error: The file C:\Program Files (x860\Sierra\FEAR\FEARA.Arch00 doesn't match the file in the setup's .cab file. The medium
from which you are running the setup may be corrected, contact your software vendor
I get random blue screens of death. They only flash for a second or two so I don't have enough time to write down the codes. They usually happen when I have multiple programs running and I try to open/close a window.
Now I'm going to post all the components that are included in my new computer and a lot of my BIOS settings. WARNING: very long:

WHAT IVE TRIED TO FIX GAME INSTALLATION PROBLEM
1. I've tried removing 1 stick of ram and starting up with both sticks to check if either is faulty. Either neither of them are or they both have errors but if they're both faulty how would I be able to use my comp right now?
2. I've checked both IDE modes for my optical drives. Both are set to DMA (when available). I even tried setting both to IPO only but games still couldn't install.
3. Turned off all firewalls and extra processes, didn't work.
4. Installed all latest windows critical/optional updates.
5. Tried turning off 1 CPU core for the installation process of any game, doesn't fix it.
WHAT IVE TRIED TO FIX RANDOM BLUE SCREEN PROBLEM
1. Lowered CPU voltage to 1V (in medium range of recommended voltage) didn't fix it.
2. Installed all windows updates
Can someone please help me, I really need help I can't seem to figure this out. Thanks to anyone who helps!
