It looks like 8 sticks of RAM. Try 4. That's plenty of RAM and could reduce the loading on the RAM bus. If that helps you talk to the machine's maker to ask them to reduce the stick count.

-> All those dumps are used by others. Here I ask what was running at the time. That is, some games have errors and will dump. But I can't tell from this volume of information.

Are you saying that I should take out 4 sticks of ram?
The reason why I have a lot of RAM is because I do a lot of video editing

I'm offering how I narrow it down.

8 sticks of RAM could require memory timing adjustments to slower settings. I'm skipping duplicating the web but filling all slots slows the bus and can create errors. Trying it with just 4 sticks is a good test.

However I can't tell what was going on at the time of the BSOD so I can't write about errors in apps.
