Default USB related BSODs?

yesterday night, i plugged a USB stick into one of the front USB inputs on my case, and my computer instantly BSOD. I restart it, try again (on another front USB input). Same deal. Once i restarted again, I tried plugging it into the back USB connections, and those worked fine. I then tried plugging it into the front ones again, and those worked. Today, the front ones worked fine as well.
What could be the explanation for the BSODs? Could the motherboard be dying, and I should RMA? I have had VERY few BSODs with this machine, and to have two like that is disturbing. I got some screens of the message after it restarted from the BSODs.

I have been running the board overclocked 24/7, so maybe the stress got to it...Core temps have always been fine.





As always, thanks for your help guys

Could be a grounding issue, or a motherboard problem. Also, upgrade to windows 7.

Seriously, make Win7 your next upgrade. I was one of the lucky ones that didn't have many usb issues with Vista, but it had it's fair share of problems.

Have you tried any of those updates? I don't know which are incorporated into SP2 or not, you may get lucky with it. I kept mine updated with just about every update MS released and had very few problems.

I also set my brothers rig up exactly the same way and he has no issues I'm aware of with Vista Ultimate 64bit and SP2 with all other updates installed.
