I have been getting an IRQL and/or a memory management bsod once a day within 20 minutes of boot (with XMP enabled and without). It appears to trigger at random and I have been unable to trigger it by any specific action. Is there a compatability issue? Or could it maybe be solved with some tweaking? I am not overclocking anything.
This is my first build so I may be missing something obvious.
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
Intel Core i7 7700K
Asus Strix z270e Gaming (https://www.asus.com/us/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-STRIX-Z270E-GAMING/) (updated to latest bios)
GeForce GTX 1070 @139MHz
x2(8g) - Crucial Technology 8192 MB (DDR4-2400) - XMP 2.0 - P/N: BLS8G4D240FSCK.8FBD
x2(8g) - Crucial Technology 8192 MB (DDR4-2400) - XMP 2.0 - P/N: BLS8G4D240FSC.16FBD
Tests I have run (all with no errors):
Memtest (individual sticks - 8 passes, all sticks - 8 passes)
Windows Memory Diagnostic
Secure erase and clean Windows 10 install
All drivers up to date, to my knowledge
Please let me know of any additional information I can provide. Thanks so much!

I noticed the memory parts you are using are different. The FSCK.8FBD are what we call high density parts vs the standard FSC.16FBD. You can typically can mix density just fine, but you really should make sure the memory isn't mixed in the same memory channel. Basically keep the same parts in the same colored memory slots; also refer to the ASUS manual to make sure the cards are in the correct channel.
Otherwise have you tested the kits one at a time see if you can narrow it down to a fault in a pair, or perhaps it is a mixing issue? Also test a pair in each memory channel for a possible channel issue on the board?
