Blue Screen Of Death

Hi everyone, I have a couple of BSOD's ever since I got new memory

My Specs:

i7 7700k
ASUS B250H
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB x 2 (32GB Total) : Corsair CMK32GX4M2A2400C14


I've ran memtest86 for a full 4 passes and they passed with 0 error.
The only thing I changed is enabled XMP in which I disabled it.

I've read somewhere XMP something about DRAM voltage could cause BSOD like low voltage??
I've only got 1 profile on this XMP in which says voltage is 1.20v somewhere I read if enable to 1.35 is stable?

If you want to see the minidumps for the bsod I can include too

Much help would be appreciated , many thanks.

List your full specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard. I'm wondering why you paired a K suffix processor with a B250 chipset board? You either should've gone with a Z series chipset and DDR4-3200MHz rams or a non K suffix processor part. What sort of an aftermarket cooler do you have on your processor?

FYI, you don't need to increase ram voltage for a kit that runs at 2400MHz.

Moved thread from Memory to Systems.

CPU: i7 7700k
Mobo: ASUS B250H
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB x 2 (32GB Total) : Corsair CMK32GX4M2A2400C14
SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 250GB
HDD: A bunch of other
GPU: GTX 1060 6GB
PSU: Corsair 750W
Chassis: Corsair 750D Airflow
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Not everyone has a lot of money to get the best parts, plus at the time of build I did not need to overclock so I went with the B250H instead of Z series since they were expensive. As for aftermarket cooler its a Noctua D15. I have the latest bios too

What series is that Corsair PSU from? How old is the PSU?

The K series of processors are unlocked but you can only take advantage of it if you went with a Z series chipset board. Bringing back to the processor and your budget, you could've saved much more if you went with a non-K suffix processor, i.e i7-7700(non-K) and the stock cooler, that came with the i7-7700(non-K) would've done the job saving you more money(without needing to buy the Noctua).

Which version of the OS are you on, 1806? I wait to hear back from the other suggestions I passed on prior.

Edit:
Version of BIOS?

Corsair CX750M about 1 year old same as other components version os is Windows 1809. Bios Version is Version 11.8.55.3510 . My question is is it safe to use DRAM Voltage of 1.35 as in XMP is 1.2v and I read somewhere that bumping it up maybe will solve it. The ram is Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB x 2 (32GB Total) : Corsair CMK32GX4M2A2400C14.

Thanks
