Recently been having some BSODs while gaming. It's a complex problem because I have recently been replacing lots of parts in my build. I'll start with the behavior I get:

BEHAVIOR
SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION
IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
UNEXPECTED KERNEL MODE TRAP
WHEA UNCORRECTABLE ERROR
(additionally, random unprompted restarts)
Only happens during gaming, unreliable timing from 20 minutes to 3 hours. I have not had issues with web browsing, media, or even intensive processes like video editing in Adobe.

HARDWARE
I replaced my old motherboard and processor with the following:
Gigabyte 365M DS3H
Intel i7 9700

Then I tried to replace my old GPU with a new one, but my fixed power supply did not have the power cables to support it. So I put my old one back in while I waited for a new PSU. This is when the BSODs started.
Old GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti
New GPU: Radeon RX 480

I replaced my PSU with a modular type hoping the new graphics card would fix my issues, but unfortunately not.

SOFTWARE
While trying to install my new GPU, I updated my motherboard BIOS to the latest version.

I've updated my drivers, uninstalled Nvidia drivers, made sure my audio drivers were up-to-date etc.
My mobo uses audio drivers from Realtek.

I also uninstalled VoiceMeeter which is a virtual audio mixer.

I did a System Restore to the day I tried to replace my GPU, but I still got blue screens.

I ran a System File Scan thinking maybe there were corrupt Windows files related to the kernel. It did find and repair corrupt files but I have still been getting BSODs.

I used WhoCrashed to generate a report about recent crashes. You can find the report here: https://pastebin.com/z2bRL7Ak

I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic with my old GPU connected and it did not detect any problems.

I have been keeping an eye on my system temperatures and they are not reaching shutdown thresholds.

I ran a memory check with MemTest86 and there were no errors.

I reinstalled the prior version of my motherboard BIOS.
