Win 10 Master
Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD - that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

Open Windows File Explorer
Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .

WHEA - Windows Hardware Error Architecture
Errors called by CPU but not necessarily caused by it. Can be any hardware, can sometimes be drivers
remove any overclocks
remove any overclocking software so thinks like Asus AI Suite, MSI Afterburner, Intel extreme tuning utility
can be caused by heat

try running this on CPU -
try updating BIOS
try installing latest version of Intel Management Engine Interface
