          Hi,

          Usually when a system freezes and freezes constantly on blue screen errors, it refers to memory or, at least, it's a possibility.  So, to begin diagnosis of your particular system symptom, I'd recommend the following:

           

          1. Ensure your memory does comply with the requirements of the board; for this, please, refer to the following URL:

           

          http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dx58so2/sb/CS-031872.htm#features

           

          2. Just to be 100% sure, check that your Samsung* memory is 1.5v., as, I confirm, the CPU is not tolerant to higher than 1.5v.  "Intel recommends using memory that adheres to the Jedec memory specification for DDR3 memory which is 1.5 volts, plus or minus 5%. Anything over this voltage can either damage the processor or significantly reduce the processor life span." (qtd. here).
