Machine Check Exception BSOD

Hello Guys!

So for the past 2-3 months my PC has been having blue screen issues with the error code Machine Check Exception. Its really annoying and usually when I start my PC it will always happen 3-5 times before my PC becomes some what usable. And even when it becomes usable it tends to also get the Machine Check Exception BSOD sometimes.

I own a MSI B150M Bazooka motherboard and it has these EZ Debug LEDS on the board. Earlier when my PC had the BSOD I checked the EZ Debug LEDS and found that first the CPU light blinked then to the DRAM then the VGA light blinked twice. I checked the manual for the MOBO and there was no help on the EZ Debug LEDS except telling me which light is for which. The CPU and GPU I have is an i5 6500 and XFX RX 460 2GB Single Fan card. The drivers for the card also is using the latest drivers which is 18.2.1. Before this I was using some older drivers which was 17 something and I also had this issue which then I updated it. Yet I still get the error.

Here are my specs :

Intel Core i5 6500 XFX RX 460 2GB Avexir Core 8GB DDR4 x 1 2400MHZ MSi B150M Bazooka MOBO Apacer 120 GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD Corsair VS550 PSU

I hope someone could help my solve this soon!

Thank you for all your help and advice in advance!

EDIT: I also read some forums online and they said overclocking or overheating might cause it, but my GPU runs around 55-65C even on full load and I uninstalled MSI Afterburner (I never OC'ed through it I just downloaded it.)
