Question BSOD with memory error message

Hello everyone!

I've been having a problem with my PC blue screening when I close a game. It doesn't happen every time I close a game, but it happens a majority of the time! Sometimes it will blue screen once, restart and then be fine, but other times it will keep bluescreening every time it restarts until the windows recovery tool kicks in.

I've taken pictures of every time it does it, so I have all the error codes and how many times each code has occured:
  • MEMORY_MANAGEMENT : 10 times
  • PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA: 3 times
  • ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY: 1 time
  • SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION _NOT_HANDLED : 1 time
  • SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION : 1 time
  • CRITICAL _STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION : 1 time
I've recently upgraded my CPU and motherboard in late April, and the bluescreening started early May, so my thinking is they're related, but i'm really not tech savvy when it comes to software/hardware issues like this! I've included below my build:
  • Windows 10 Pro (version 10.0.19041)
  • CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X
  • Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B450-F
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
  • RAM: Corsair CMK16GX4M4A2666C16R (16GB)
My partner is more technically minded so he has done some googling and ran the below tests, but these didn’t show any errors or problems:
  • sfc /scannow (via PowerShell Admin)
  • chkdsk /r (via PowerShell Admin)
  • Ran MemTest86for 3 hours, using 4 iterations/passes (v8.4)
He has also checked and the RAM is listed as compatible on the PDF named "Memory-QVL-For-Ryzen-1st-Gen-Processors.pdf" but it isn't in the "Memory_QVL_3rd_Gen_AMD_Ryzen_Processors" PDF, from ASUS’s website (https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B450-F-GAMING/HelpDesk_QVL/).

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks!!
