Question Got a critical structure corruption BSOD

Weeks ago I bought new RAM to install into my computer, replacing the one stick of 8 GB RAM I had with 2 new 8 GB sticks for 16 GB RAM. Since then I've had random BSODs. The first time, I got one that said EVENT TRACING FATAL ERROR. About a week later I got another one but I forgot what error it was. Wasn't doing anything in particular, the first time I was on google chrome and the second I was in file explorer. It's been about 2 weeks now without a problem since but now while on google chrome I got yet another one saying CRITICAL STRUCTURE CORRUPTION. I'm worried it's the RAM I just bought but I can't tell, because it seems that it's either a driver or hardware issue. Any help?

This was the dump file for the most recent BSOD:

Try running memtest86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 4 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the BSOD. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors.

especially if you weren't getting BSOD before you swapped ram

This problem generally occurs due to Windows Driver Corruption or RAM problem.
After running Memtest86,if your test fails then it's your RAM problem. If your test passed then follow the steps:-
Create a bootable Pendrive and repair your system using Windows Repair Tool.
Or you can backup all you IMPORTANT things and do a clean install. This can be due to virus or malware.

After doing,use your system until you get another Stop Code.

I ended up flashing my BIOS and updating them and after doing that I went through the Windows Memory Diagnostic again with both RAM sticks and it came up with no problem this time. Is it possible my old BIOS version wasn't that compatible with the RAM I bought which caused problems? It used to be a 2015 version but now it's a more recent 2018 version. I think the RAM I bought actually came out sometime after 2015.

I startes memtest and so far it finished pass 1 of 4 with 229 cumulative error counts. Does that mean faulty ram then?

I also just realized all the errors are coming from test 13, the hammer test. From some searching I'm seeing that's where people usually get errors and there's even a section on the memtest website about test 13 only errors. Should I replace the sticks regardless?

Max error count you want in memtest is 0. Any higher is a sign you need new ram

BIOS updates can help motherboard work with ram but won't overcome faulty ram itself.

I would rma the sticks and get a new set. Failing memtest is a valid reason for replacement.
