I had an old gtx 750ti and upgraded to a radeon 580 8gb, and a second pair of 8 gig corsair ram (32 total now from 16, i matched the ram to the original stuff) and since the install I get bsod every 10 minutes or so. please help!

Edit: the specs sheet doesnt give much on the ram its cmk16gx4m2a2666c16
4x 8 gig corsair 2666mhz

I've got the boot disk made for the memory test. I'll have to run it later tonight.
As for the hard drive test I run 4 ssd in raid 0 so not sure how I would test that. I imagine it's not the issue since it began with the new ram and video card install

Going from a GTX 750 Ti to an RX 580 is a big leap. What is the make/model/age/wattage of your PSU? Your old PSU may not be able to handle it. Try using your old graphics card — does the system still BSOD?

Im going to run the memory test now, and ill start part swapping tomorrow in the evening.

the whole system is only a year old I just used an old video card from a buddy to save on the cost. I needed a quick and dirty editing machine and had limited funds. 

I have a cx600 power supply and my estimated power usage while gaming from here https://outervision.com/b/kF2slb is 

Load Wattage:374 W

Recommended PSU Wattage:424 W

I feel this is well within the safe zone. plus none of my BSOD are under load. last one was while typing one of these posts in chrome with nothing else running. it actually hasn't happened while gaming or benchmarking it always seems to be in between.

good thought based on the information I had provided so far. thanks for the reply

Alright. Memtest came back with errors after about 20 minutes so I pulled the two new sticks. I'll just run through the process of elimination to rule out either the new sticks or old sticks. Or the slots on the board.
Judging by how long 3 passes takes, I'll get back to you in a week Lol :'D

Old sticks came back clean 4 passes in all slots. New sticks are garbage unless there's a chance that the memory controller cant handle the 4 but is fine with two(for whatever reason). It's been a long day I didn't test only the new sticks. I'm just going to return them. Oh and while testing one of the fans on the new gpu started running all caddywhompas and vibrating. Just my luck, it's going back too.
Thanks for the tools to figure this out. let's hope new parts get me up and running again
