Multiple BSODs in the past few days. (Windows 10)

I have had BSODs pretty often lately and I'm not sure how to fix it. I already ran tests on memory before and found an issue with a stick and had it replaced. I'm not sure whether is still an issue with the hardware or drivers at this point. Are there any other procedures to check if certain components/drivers/software are the ones causing the crashes?

These are my PC Specs: https://gyazo.com/e77625f1e035b867dcf17512d70177d9
(When I replaced my ram sticks, they started showing up as 32.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1599MHz instead of the actual name(Corsair Vengeance) like it used to. What could be the reason behind this and is it a problem at all?)

Here are the BlueScreenViewer dumps. (If there is a better way to post this or need more info LMK)

Also, which drivers should I try to reinstall or be checking? I'm not entirely sure which ones could be causing problems.

First inclination based off the screenshots would be a memory issue for 3 of the dumps and a network card driver for the 4th dump. After reading your post, I'd be more inclined to say there's a problem with the memory. After you replaced the bad stick, did you run a memtest again?

Yeah I ran an 8-pass test and didn't find any issues.

Looking at the BSOD codes and the fact that you had a clean memtest, Next options are possible Anti-Virus interference or System Corruption. If there's system corruption, it could just be OS corruption and a "sfc /scannow" from the command prompt could fix it. If it's not software corruption, then it could also be hardware corruption, in which case I'd recommend running a hard drive test. This can be done through some BIOS or Western Digital's Lifeguard.

I tested my HDD and SSD and both are fine. I did an sfc/scannow and didn't have any issues either.

That leaves a driver issue (only one referenced I saw was the network driver) or anti-virus conflict (see the microsoft link from earlier).

I checked the microsoft link and I ran driver verifier. It then put me in a BSOD loop which I got out of in safe mode. This is the dump I was getting:

I believe that is my GPU right? How do I properly uninstall and reinstall my GPU drivers and GPU tweak 2?

The problem is that you don't have a single consistent BSOD code....

Taking the "Caused By Driver" from your most recent post and doing a google search pulls a lot of results related to virus infections. It may be that you have a virus infection that's corrupted drivers and that's the cause of all these problems. This one seems to be tying back to the ASUS AI Suite III for your ROG Board.

Might go into Safe Mode with Networking, scan your computer for viruses and malware (just to be sure although it may just be a conflict between ASUS AI Suite III and your AV), download the latest drivers from ASUS for your motherboard and the latest drivers for your video card (from that manufacturer) and see if there's an update to the ASUS AI Suite III. If that's not necessary for you to have, I may even just uninstall the AI Suite III all-together.

Yeah I don't really need it besides changing the color of my GPU but I don't really do that too often anyways. I saw some other people have had the same issue with it so I hope uninstalling fixes.
