BSOD memory management during gaming

I got this computer a 2 years ago and have been getting BSOD when gaming and has happened from various games. I have ran memtest numerous times with moving the sticks to different slots with no errors. When gaming I will get memory error,memory management, bad pool header BSOD at random times.

Did chkdisk with no errors and other checks with no errors. Updated drivers.

I have attached my debug zip and results minitoolbox with last 10 event viewer log, installed programs, users partitions, and memory size options checked.

Is there anything else I need to post to help me fix this problem I've had?

There aren't any .dmp files in your attachment. These are required to analyse the BSODs.

Follow these steps:

1. Configure Windows to create minidumps:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

2. Set the paging file on C: to be the same size as the physically installed RAM:
Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

3. Set the Windows Error Reporting service to MANUAL:
Services - Start or Disable



4. Test to see that dump files are created:
- Open Windows Task Manager
- Navigate to the Processes tab
- Right-click on explorer.exe, and click Create Dump File



- Note the location of the saved file



- Check that location and confirm that explorer.dmp exists

Here is a compressed zip with a few crash dumps. I already had all those settings setup. Hope these are what is needed.

Those dumps don't contain any information that we can use, were they generated during a BSOD?

It would also be helpful if you updated your system specs to include what and how much memory your system has.
