BSOD happens unpredictably, more often when doing something graphic intensive but not always.

The audio usually loops for a few seconds until the machine reboots.

It looks like memory corruption.

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.

You might also want to isolate each stick of RAM and see if your computer crashes with each individual stick.

MemTest Errors

I ran MemTest86+ over night and found errors 4 errors on the 7th path.

So, would it make sense try and isolate the sticks and see which one it is? Or should I just replace both sticks and upgrade while am it it?

Is there an easy way to make sure it's RAM that's corrupted and not a motherboard issue?

As you said, I would isolate the sticks to see which one is responsible.
