Windows 7: BSOD, suspect it's RAM - 0x00001a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

BSOD, suspect it's RAM - 0x00001a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

Hey guys, as listed in the title/subject I'm having the infamous 0x00001a BSOD.

Ran memtest86 for 3 hours before I finally couldn't take it anymore, I'm under strong suspicion it is RAM causing the issue, will list a couple of images I took from my phone and also the BSOD info. I unfortunately don't know how to read errors so I'll leave that to the technically more gifted

Thank you a lot in advance for helping out, huge kudos :)

As it is visible that the RAM is in fault, you need to replace it, for sure.

For a further analysis, if you need, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

So are you saying you believe/know that the RAM is at fault or are you just going from what I've said? I'm not doubting in any way I'm just being 100% sure as we know how much of a chore it is to find which module it is as the BSODs are completely random :P

Thank you so much for the fast response :)

From the first picture it is clear that the RAM is failing. See all the red lines in it.
