Question New PC - BSOD every time when installing Window 10, Ubuntu working flawlessly

So, I have set up a new PC and I am facing a weird issue. I am unable to install Windows 10 in the system. Every time, when 1-2 mins in the installation process the system is restarting with a BSOD. However, if I boot into Ubuntu the system works flawlessly. I was able to stress test the PC using Phoronix for around 16-18 hours on Ubuntu(my Geek Benchmark 5 scores: Single Core: 1205; Multi-core: 4752) but all attempts to install Windows goes into endless restarts.

Things I have already tried:
  1. Replacing RAM's in different slots A2B2, A1B1, A1 only, B1 only
  2. Tried a different graphic card
  3. Tried a different HDD
  4. Reconnected every peripheral properly and double-checking it.
  5. Ran memtest86 for 8 full passes, no errors reported
Here is my systems configuration:
Ryzen 5 3500
ASRock B450 Steel Legend
2 X 8gb Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz
Kingston A2000 240GB SSD
Gigabyte RX 570 4G GPU
Gigabyte B700H PSU

Any suggestions what I might be doing wrong?
