Dragon centre can include a driver that is capable of changing hardware settings so that could be why it crashes. I think I have heard of it being cause before.
Dragon Centre is really buggy yes, When I try to change the lightning from my fans and motherboard and all that it gives me a bluescreen. I'm quite sure that Dragon Centre is the big cause of all this but it could be that there are more then just Dragon Centre that's causing bluescreens, that is why i wanted to do a clean windows install then we can see what causes them.

screen size wide enough for you? 4k screen here is bad enough

Have you clean installed already? as there isn't a great deal on your PC.
If all the steam games are on a 2nd drive, you wouldn't even need to reinstall them afterwards.

Lol I've already done a clean windows install xD, thought I mentioned that, but probably forgot.

we on page 5, you probably did mention it, i need to read through thread again and see what we have done. I was going to do that today although i forgot. I try tomorrow.

Can you download and run Driverview - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html

All it does is looks at drivers installed; it won't install any
When you run it, go into view tab and set it to hide all Microsoft drivers, will make list shorter.
Now its up to you, you can look through the drivers and try to find old drivers, or you can take a screenshot from (and including)Driver name to (and including)Creation date.
upload it to an image sharing website and show link here
All I would do is look at driver versions (or dates if you lucky to have any) to see what might have newer versions.

amazed I haven't asked for this already (I may have, I just skimmed the last 4 pages)

sigh, only 3 dates as usual. I guess I can use the ones from Dumps anyway
its odd Nahimic is a win 7 driver
strange the Realtek audio isn't showing on that list but is on dumps.
cimFS.sys - realises this is bluestacks and we been through this already

Do you use WIFI or lan? I will go find a newer version of either one then

To be honest, I think what’s going on now is that you are looking at bluescreens from more then 2 days ago, before I did the clean windows install. The foto of the drivers I just posted is AFTER the clean windows install, I haven’t installed any drivers apart from the newest Nvidia drivers. So I haven’t downloaded any drivers from the MSI website. The strange part is that I’ve tried downloading those drivers and then I got bluescreens so it must be one of those drivers that is causing an issue.

So I have not installed any Nahimic, Realtek, or bluestacks drivers.

Nahimik & Realtek audio likely installed by windows.
cimFS.sys might be part of windows - https://www.systemlookup.com/Drivers/12492-CimFS_sys.html - it is just odd for the driver program to show Windows drivers
aah okey, my bad then I thought you were talking about dump files before the clean windows install. Well they are not causing any trouble at the moment, I haven't updated any drivers after the clean windows install and after I found out about Dragon Centre causing bluescreens.

I ran the new dump files through the debugger and got the following information: https://pastebin.com/h3ha6vJz
File information:063020-7406-01.dmp (Jun 30 2020 - 10:58:03)
Bugcheck:KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_INVALID_LOCK_RELEASE (162)
Probably caused by:memory_corruption (Process: DCv2.e)
Uptime:1 Day(s), 20 Hour(s), 02 Min(s), and 38 Sec(s)

File information:063020-7406-02.dmp (Jun 30 2020 - 11:56:03)
Bugcheck:KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE (139)
Probably caused by:memory_corruption (Process: steam.exe)
Uptime:0 Day(s), 0 Hour(s), 57 Min(s), and 30 Sec(s)
Comment: The overclocking driver "NTIOLib_X64.sys" was found on your system. (MSI Afterburner or other MSI software)

This information can be used by others to help you. Someone else will post with more information. Please wait for additional answers. Good luck.

i wish that other site worked as usual, the layout is much easier to deal with.

i would install the AMD chipset drivers
you don't have any sound drivers so those realtek ones are from May.
Wifi drivers are also from May
So install the last 3. although you don't use wifi, its up to you.
you don't need the bios button.

What is
Oct 16 2019 - msio64.sys - MSI Gaming App driver
Do you have MSI afterburner installed? or perhaps it is part of the Dragon Centre.

although Dragon Centre is crashing, I feel its blaming the victim. It could be the case, the amd chipset drivers might play a part as well.

rgb light programs seem to be problems in themselves.
