PC bluescreening issue

Hello PCpartpicker community. After building my first PC for gaming with the part list below https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Xkmycq my PC will tend to go to BSOD from startup. Note that Windows is installed from my SSD and is what I use to boot it from, not my HDD. I'll admit i've only done little research on why this could be possible but my parts all seem compatible and as such I don't understand why I would be having these issues. I also have formatted my drives several times and it still happens and as such I believe its a hardware issue. Also note that I bought my RAM in bulk (i have 32 GB of the ones in the list.) Is it a hardware issue? Is there anything I could try? Please help

Try the following. They are quick basic checks.

  1. Run chkdsk.
  2. Scan the system file for corruptions. Issue the following within a Command Prompt - Administrator - sfc /scannow
  3. Run memtest to test the memory for errors.

If those all check clear, you can move on and try other things.

what XP330NE said.......... it really can be that simple. That and a "possible" driver issue somewhere.
