I've gone several days now with no BSOD after installing the network adaptor drivers from Intel's website. It's still too early to tell if it's solved the problem (there have been occasions before where a week went by with no BSOD). I'll post back in several weeks if there is no BSOD, or the moment I get another.

Why are you only running 1 stick of ram? any driver problems could tie into the reason why you only running 1 stick of a 32gb set currently.
I only owned one stick of RAM. I ended up getting a set of 2 8GB ram a month ago because I suspected it might be the issue, but I still was getting BSODs even with two sticks of RAM.

I just tried to boot from Linux. I flashed it to a USB drive, however I can't seem to boot from the USB drive and it doesn't show up as an option in bios. Windows does not even seem to be able to detect the flash drive now.

EDIT: I managed to get the USB to be detected in BIOS, however when I start in Linux I get a string of "No irq handler for vector" errors. I can hear sound effects like its starting up but the screen remains blank with those errors.

What did you use to install Linux on the thumb drive?

Try again using Rufus
https://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Boot-Manager-Disk/Rufus.shtml

Just tried out Rufus, When I boot from the USB I get to a blank menu that says the following:

"Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions." It looks like there is a command line prompt after of some kind. Doing some quick research I put in "exit" but it just boots up Windows 10 after that.

You are going to be better off by getting an RW-DVD, that way you can try multi Linux distros, if the need arises. Follow my previous instructions.

Yeah, I got Rufus to unpack Linux on the USB. I can look at the USB drive and I see a bunch of Ubuntu related files on it. The USB shows up as a bootable option in BIOS too. I set the USB to boot but then I get this screen:

I found an external CD drive and some old RWDVDs. I boot up but get an error "Invalid Magic Number, you need to load the kernel first."

Also, if you are making a installer flashdrive from any linux .iso on rufus:
1. make sure that you set the boot section to FreeDOS then click the button next to it marked select(not the drop down arrow bit)
2.File system is FAT32
3.cluster size is default
