Question BSOD - Memtest86 displays 2437 errors. Ram or CPU?

I've had this new build pc for 1 month working smoothly. All of a sudden I get 3 BSOD in one day, Each time saying Memory_management.

Windows diagnostic says there's a hardware issue so I run memtest and get 2437 errors. I'll do the whole swapping the ram out to check if it's a stick but the errors say cpu : 3 on each one. Soi could it also be a cpu issue?

I also get the errors with and without XMP enabled.
Links attached.

Try using a lower frequency XMP setting or manually set ram to 3733 and try using CL18-20-20-39 primary timings and leave the rest on automatic. What is the actual memory kit model?

Thanks for the reply.

The actual memory kit model is this - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Patriot-Viper-3733MHz-Performance-Memory/dp/B07N43CYMS/ref=asc_df_B07N43CYMS/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=375533655752&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13113968506564055529&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006530&hvtargid=pla-661647529429&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=75934964839&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=375533655752&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13113968506564055529&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006530&hvtargid=pla-661647529429

I've currently pulled one ram out and the memtest has been running perfectly for an hour. Next step is to put the good stick into the other dimm to check it's not dimm. And then to put the bad dimm into the other dimm. And then I'll check your timings suggestion
