Default random BSOD on new hardware

hey i really hope you can help me fix this, im getting random bsod on my desktop (every 5minutes where i cant even use it) after putting new hardware into it, the new hardware is as followed, p35-ds3l mobo, e2140, 8500gt (modded), seagate 250gb hd, and 2gb ddr2 gskill memory.

the memory passed memtest for 3 or 4 passes, the hard drive passes seatools on the ultimate bootcd, and when i was in windows the cpu ran wprime benchmarks. i dont know what else to do.

microsofts website said uninstall all drivers to see if theyre the issue, but i didnt have drivers installed, it was a fresh install

How long did Memtest run? 4 hour Minimum.

What is the power supply? You might have to check the voltage and Amperage outputs with a digital multimeter.

Have you considered a bios flash?

Did you install all the motherboard drivers included?

Yea, well I would first finish running memtest for least 4 hours. If it returns no errors, then RMA the motherboard. If it returns errors, then RMA the RAM.

Nice power supply, same one I have.

thank you for your help, memtests been running for 4.5 hours with 0 errors, seatools short and long test gave 0 errors as well.

im going to go ahead and rma the motherboard, when i rma it do i include all the wires and discs and whatnot, will they send me a new box or just a barebones board?

im running xp pro with sp2

Could be a software issue. Pop in a linux livecd and browse the web or something. If it still crashes then you'll know it's not the OS....

Did they send you the xp disk? Have you tried doing a repair or clean reinstall?
