You got at least one bugcheck that is attributable to memory corruption (BAD_POOL_HEADER), and you have strong evidence of faulty RAM. I'd suggest replacing the suspect RAM, or at least doing further testing with e.g. memtest86 or Windows Memory Diagnostic, keeping in mind that memory that passes tests is not necessarily good memory - it just hasn't failed a test.
