I was playing Valorant (not in game, just in the lobby from memory). Valorant is installed on my A drive. The only 3rd party AV I have installed is malwarebytes which I don't have real time protection turned on, I just manually scan files with it if needed.It wasn`t RAM related.
What was the computer being used for when this latest BSOD happened and more importantly which one of the storage devices were you accessing data from, pagefile corruption was the cause of the crash with the process that got tripped up being Windows Defender.
Have you ever had any other AV program installed on this computer.

Okay I have run a new log with the boxes definitely checked, attached to this reply.You appear to have uploaded two of the same screenshots I`m afraid, no matter though if your PC did not crash when running Furmark as your results look very good.
The format looks to have been updated so yes, please do an updated Autoruns log for us using the options that you have checked.
If you wish to swap just the old RAM back in it is important that you recreate the exact same usage conditions as when you were using the new RAM.
Any stuttering behaviour is going off topic from your OP, as long as the original issue has been resolved this thread should be marked as solved and you then need to start a new thread on the internal hardware forum.
