    Bad RAM

    I would try using it with the original memory to see if it still locks up randomly. It could be the case that you happened to buy bad RAM, and if it works with the original RAM, I would call the company that you bought the RAM upgrade from and have it exchanged.

    It's wow. It had done it to me quite a few times. Mostly with chrome open with a few tabs + WoW. Do a fresh install of wow, fixed it for me. Tho I stopped playing it about a week or two after but it never happened again. Also check the Mac Support on the wow forums, you're not the only one with this issue.
