    BSOD from cold boot if computer has been off a while

    BSOD happens only when the computer cold boots from a prolonged inactive state. If the PC is off for several hours and is turned on it occurs. Computer typically blue screens, sometimes it freezes at the bios splash screen where they Windows 10 circular loading icon appears on this Gigabyte. I've seen multiple reasons for the occurrence such as bad pooler caller and irql not less or equal. The BSOD happens once then after the computer functions as normal with no other issues.

    Power supply, graphics card, and SSD were both pulled from a previous build with zero issues in that build. New to this build is the motherboard, processor, and RAM.

    Ran Memtest86 with no errors for 8 passes but I just realized it was after the initial cold boot BSOD and not going from the inactive state to the test directly. Will be swapping out the RAM at Microcenter today just to eliminate that possibility.

    Windows 10 was a clean install but it happened on the previous install, BIOS is flashed to the most recent release.

    Windows 10

    Update on this for people having similar issues. I swapped out my memory going from 4 x 4 sticks of DDR4 at 16 GBs to 2 x 8 sticks of DDR4 at 16 GBs and all my issues are completely gone. Over the last week I've had zero BSoD occurrences. It was either bad memory or the other two slots I'm not not using in the motherboard are bad. I'm leaning towards bad memory sticks. I'll move the RAM to the other slots in the next week just to make sure.
