what do you mean it has been recalled?

Which test are you running in Prime95 (i.e. Small FFT, Blend, etc...)

What PSU are you running?

Are the components recently purchased? When the P67 motherboards were first released, there was a recal on them. The new fixed revisions of the P67 boards are all labelled B3. If it is a recent buy i doubt you will have to worry about that though.

Check RAM first. It's the simplest to check and it's most likely at fault. Verify it's all good with memtest86

It not likely to be related to the recall since the recall reason had nothing to do with stability in that way. Furthermore, it doesn't sound like PSU related as that should crash when gaming every time and he's saying it will sometimes work.

I took "Also all of my games Crash to Desktop without errors sometimes." as it always crashes, but doesnt always display an error message. Hence PSU as it might be underpowered when all the clocks get ramped up and the video kicks into 3d.

Really, a bunch of information is missing. What type of ram? have a link? Would also still like to know what PSU it is. I agree that ram is the quickest to diagnose. Just try them 1 stick at a time and see if any error out when they are singled out.

It is a high quality PSU 750w full power 800w. Brand new PSU.
Brand new 1tb HDD
Bought the motherboard 3 weeks ago.
Does it matter in which sata spot i plug in my HDD's? there are 3 colours.

RAM is GEIL as you can see it in the 1st screenshot i have provided you.

Will update more info soon.

Prime95 was running in Blend mode.

I see...I agree with Perineum. Run memtest86 to check if your ram is good. Be sure to let it run for several hours.
