Distorted blue screen caused by BAD_POOL_HEADER in ntoskrnl.exe and ntfs.sys in windwos 10

In the last few months, I've had a couple of blue screen, distorted to the point it's not readable and shattered It looks like this . I have been unable to find a solution so I've come to ask here. Here is the result of whocrashed:

This might be a case of memory corruption. This may be because of a hardware issue such as faulty RAM, overheating (thermal issue) or because of a buggy driver. This problem might also be caused because of overheating (thermal issue).
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

The crash took place in a file system driver. Since there is no other responsible driver detected, this could be pointing to a malfunctioning drive or corrupted disk. It's suggested that you run CHKDSK.

    Can you go to C:\WINDOWS\Minidump and copy the files from there to desktop
    upload the copies from desktop to a file sharing web site and show link here, I will ask someone to convert files for us.

    can you download memtest86 and use it to make a bootable USB. Run it on 1 stick of ram at a time, up to 8 passes. Any error count higher than 0 is too high and is a sign ram needs to be replaced/removed.

    NTOSKRNL = windows kernel. It handles all driver requests, power management, and memory management. It sits between Hardware and Applications. It got blamed but its not the cause
    NTFS.sys = New Technology File System.
