Did you replace all of the memory?
How long did you run memtest for? It should be run for at least 24 hours
and even then, memtest is not guaranteed to find all memory errors.
Does the system have any other os or flavour of Linux installed? It
would be instructive to see if the problem occurs on a different os also.
Is the hardware the same as the other users?
Have you mcelog installed? If so, does it log anything?
Do the system logs contain any messages after a crash?
As mentioned by one of the other responses, considering disabling or
turning down compiz if enabled.
