Starting to get BSOD almost daily.

Not sure what changed.

First I got a memory error in the BSOD, so I run a test on the RAM, no issue there.

Then a Page error, so it might be related to HDD/SSD

I ran chkdsk and sfc, it found some corrupt files and fixed them

Hope that was the cause of the issue.

 

I think my Windows 10 is up to date, including the Samsung Magician and SSD drives.

I might need to do chkdsk for all the drivers?

 

What else could it be?

Using what software? If it isn't Memtest86, then it's not accurate.

From the BIOS I mean.

Edit: You ask from windows somewhere, and then it reboots into the test in the BIOS.

Yea, memtest86 found errors in test 7 and 8.

I didn't finish the test.

I disabled XMP overclock and now I am running it again. :/

Could a BIOS update make XMP more stable?

Not sure if the memtest86 does the test regardless of the XMP profile.

Finishe 2 passes without errors. Almost finishing 3rd. Should I wait for all 4 passes to finish?

Is this with, or without, XMP turned on?

I had many BSOD's because my CPU heatsink was full of dust and was tapping out for safety.

Suggest having a look and cleanout of the pc, fans, components with a good vacuum or compressed air :)

Without the XMP,

With the XMP it had errors in the first pass.

XMP is clearly an issue. If MT86 runs fine with XMP off, leave it off and see how your system behaves.
