Multiple BSOD's after hardware upgrade

BSOD during gaming, mostly when during loading screens in CIV 6 (as thats what I've mostly beening playing atm).

CIV 6 crashing (no BSOD)

Chrome crashing randomly (happened three times as I was typing this out)

BSOD when idle (Leave the computer and come back and it has restarted itself, presumably from a crash)

BSOD stopcodes (I will list more as I remember them...):

Memory Management (ntoskrnl.exe)

Page Fault In Nonpaged Area

System Thread Exception Not Handled (dxgmms2.sys)

Kernel Security Check Failure

Things I've tried/done:

Reseating GPU

Reseating RAM

Running SFC in command prompt

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth in command prompt

Reinstalling graphics card and chipset drivers after using DDU

Updating BIOS

Reinstalling Windows

Hardware diagnostics, everything is physically okay

Driver verifier spitting out AMDryzenmasterdriver.sys

I am at a loss on how to fix this problem. Sometimes the computer is okay for a few hours, sometimes it crashes every 5-20 minutes. Any help is appreciated.
