BSOD stop codes I get:
Clock_watchdog_timeout (I mostly get this one)
Whea_uncorrectable_error (got this one time)

My specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K Boxed
MOBO: MSI z270 Gaming Pro Carbon
GPU: MSI Geforce GTX 1080 Gaming Z
PSU: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 750W
DRAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 3600mhz
SSD: Adata SP550
HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD, 2TB
OS: Windows 10 Education x64

I formatted my SSD and HDD and made a clean Windows 10 education install on it.
Then, I downloaded the latest Windows 10 x64 drivers for my motherboard from the MSI website.
Also I already put the latest BIOS version on it.
Then I downloaded my NVIDIA drivers for the videocard.
I also done Windows Update.

SO everything clean and reinstalled, no utilitys only the drivers I need, it still gives me the bluescreen when I run tests like prime95 and HeavyLoad.

I also ran Memtest86, witch gave me no errors for 2 hrs.
Then I dont remember what I did, but I restarted a test and the display changed.
Gave me 65535 errors!! on test 7.
I tried to reproduce this but I havent gotten this errors again.
Maybe bad RAM?
XMP is not enabled and my 2x8 are running at 2133 now.
I have ran it at 3600mhz before the problems accured with XMP profile.
I removed the XMP profile and didnt get bluescreens no more.
but later they returned, and XMP was turned off frown.gif 

I done some CPU tests, and my CPU passed them all, also the NVIDIa CPU diagnostic tool.
Also ran the Microsoft memory diagnostics but it found no errors on my RAM.

I dont know if I should test my SSD with windows on it further for errors?
SFC /scannow said no errors found.

Im going to get my soundcard out becouse I dont have the drivers installed for it yet.
But also with drivers installed before, I Got the bluescreens. Its a Creative Sound Blaster Z.
Also I will get my 2TB HDD out becouse theres nothing on it and I dont need it now.


DUMP Information: (My computer doesnt always make a dump file when it happens,
and not all bsod's show up in BlueScreenView.

Minidump files:

12-05-2017(01:20): https://ufile.io/585ly
12-05-2017(01:54): https://ufile.io/uymig
12-05-2017(01:57): https://ufile.io/go8ci

I also have a MEMORY.DMP file, but it's quite big (1.1GB):

Pictures if my windows error logbook and bluescreenview (dutch):

Can some1 PLEASE help me, I dont know what to do anymore.
Ill try anything you want, or provide all information you need.
Do certain hardwares need more voltage?
Do I have wrong stock settings in bios?
Should I buy another Windows 10 since I have Education version? It worked perfectly before.
Should I reinstall windows again?
In what order should I install what drivers?
Or is it hardware? How I find out what part.
My CPU seems OK, no errors and always 30-40-50 degrees.
I dont have an extra set DDR4. Maybe I could try Memtest86 using 1 stick of 8gb ram at a time, 
but im not sure how memtest works, or what test to run.

All suggestions or help welcome.

 Did you change settings in bios\uefi? Put them on default for testing.

 Check simple things first!

 Check if hardware components are solid installed and none imperfect contacts.

 Check if you power supply is suitable for you pc.

 Install windows version 1603 and not 1703 to test.

Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis: (from the pinned topic at the top of the forum)   http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
FYI - I don't often use the Perfmon report, so if it doesn't work please just let me know.
NOTE:  On problem systems it can take up to 20 minutes for the log files to complete.  Please be patient and let it run.

If you still have problems with it running, there's an alternate tool here (direct download link):  https://github.com/blueelvis/BSOD-Inspector/releases/download/1.0.5/BSODInspector-1.0.5.exe
