I would guess that you are using a USB drive?
if so, update the BIOS, and USB drivers from your motherboard vendors website.

otherwise, you would have to change the memory dump type from minidump to kernel memory dump and
put the files from c:\windows\minidump directory
and the kernel memory dump when you get one from c:\windows\memory.dmp
put them on a server like microsoft one drive, and share the files for public access and post a link to the files.

how to change the memory dump type:https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/111474.aspx
(select kernel memory dump)

if your computer freezes and you force a reboot then you would want to change the memory dump type to kernel and also
change the registry settings so you can force a memory dump via keyboard. the next time the system freezes up, try and force a memory dump. (you might end up having to set verifier flags)

any way, common reasons for a freeze (other than normal graphic driver problems and GPU overclocking/heat issues)
is to have conflicts between the motherboard sound driver and the GPU sound driver. (update the motherboard sound driver if you have not already done so)

any driver on the USB subsystem or any device can also mess up PCI/e Bus communications and cause a GPU to not respond.
These problems can only be debugged via kernel memory dump.

its likey a driver at fault here, you can run Driver verifier to check them all out, be careful to follow the instructions on page and don't try to play games or anything with it runnings as it eats resources. When it BSOD, be sure to load into safe mode and turn it off again.

follow option one here: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5560-bsod-minidump-configure-create-windows-10-a.html
and then do: Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD under it

this will create a file in c/windows/minidump
copy that file somewhere and then upload that copy to a cloud server and share link here
Someone who can read dumps will work it out.

every BSOD caused by driver verifier should create an error log that will be added to minidump folder

My BIOS is already up to date but I updated both Audio and USB drivers however the USB drivers are older because I had the windows 10 XHCI USB 3.0 drivers but Gigabyte's latest driver for my motherboard was dated back in 2014 but I went ahead and downloaded it anyways and will see what happens..

Now i'm running driver verifier and hoping for the best,. When you mentioned USB, my keyboard is Razer and the drivers for it were funky so I reinstalled and maybe that might affect it? I'm not sure but hoping that might help reduce errors too

Before we look at the more complex solutions, we should some of the simpler ones. This fixed the issue for me so you might also want to try it.

You can find out the misbehaved driver manually and update it via Device Manager.

Using this method, you should find out the misbehaved driver firstly.

1) On your keyboard, press Windows key + R key together to open a Run box.
Then type devmgmt.msc in the box and hit Enter to open Device Manager.

2) On the pop-up Device Manager window, expand each dialog to find which driver is with a yellow mark. The driver with the yellow mark means it is misbehaving.

Note:No surprised on not only one with yellow mark. Update them one by one by the steps below.

After you find out which driver is to blame for the error, proceed to follow steps below to update it:

3) Right-click on the driver with yellow mark and choose Update driver or something similar.

4) Click Search automatically for updated driver software.

Then Windows will detect the update for your device driver automatically.

You can have a look at other solutions through the reference links that I've mentioned below. Hope it helps. Cheers!
