Out of the Blue

Okay, my PC is bugging me with a crashing problem that's so intermittent it's almost not a problem. I get a full on BSoD about once every week or ten days or so. There's no warning for this, and there's no pattern that leads up to it that I've been able to notice. This has happened since I upgraded the machine to Win7, so it's a fresh software install, and I've since replaced the video card and cleaned out the case, so it's not the card and it's not heat. The one hardware element I may be able to identify is that the Win7 upgrade also included new RAM, so it's possibly related to that, but I would think at some point this would be identified by a log or something. One other thought is perhaps I have a memory leak, which would explain the rate at which these occur (since I hardly ever reboot/shut down). I think I'll investigate this further today, but if I can't make any progress this may be my excuse for a Haswell upgrade. It's not an emergency, only happening so often, but this is bothering me a lot that I can't track it down.
