Try re seating the CPU. If that doesn't help reinstall windows.

 

That BSOD error means the CPU cores aren't communicating properly due to drivers or maybe a bad connection in the mobo try scanning it for bent pins too.

also make sure to have the retaining lever properly seated or some pins might not be active.

if at first you don't break it you must have followed the directions

Just be careful when reseating the CPU to not accidentally bend a pin. Or more like, look under your CPU to see if you haven't bent a pin already.

I Googled that error and the first few results have it tied to RAM issues.  Did you enable XMP settings in BIOS for your RAM?  I've heard that 1000 series Ryzen has had a lot of trouble with memory compatibility.

 

What is the exact model number for the RAM you have?  It may not be on the compatibility list for your motherboard.
