Hello everyone could I please have some help? I cannot use my computer fully as it is having problems with updating and general use. I get a variety of crash code repots and even if I try fix them there is another one that appears.

My spec are:
i7-8700k
16GB DDR4 Corsair vengeance
Asus GTX1060 6GB
Gigabyte Z370P D3
970 Evo SSD

I am pretty sure that it is not the SSD as I tried a HDD with a fresh windows install.

I am unsure if it is the RAM or CPU or just windows software.

Hi! I'm no expert at this but it did happen to me last time and what I did was submit the BSOD crash logs to microsoft's forums and a guy there interpreted those logs and told me that there was a problem with a network driver that was causing the BSOD. I re-installed the driver and everything is smooth now.

So I don't know if people at tomshardware can do it but I'd suggest sharing the crash logs so the technical teams can know what exactly is causing the crashes :)

Thank you very much,
Asbaat

Can be hardware or software.
Start with this...get a can of air and a small brush give the innards a good cleaning heatsinks and fans extra clean.

Don't forget the psu....a few shots of air from both directions.

While your inside reseat all plugs.
