The Nvidia driver was the cause of the crash,
Test your Graphics card with OCCT and your RAM with Memtest, report back with the test results

NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

TDR116 crashes are caused by a badly installed driver or a defect in the GPU/RAM
Stop any overclocking if any.

Thanks!

Already tested memory, and its fine. Will do the GPU test.

I'm using the newest nvidia driver. Should I try to reinstall it?

Nothing is overclocked, but I think i read something about the GTX 580 being overclocked by defeault, but that shouldn't count.

Edit: Any spesific test you want me to run in OCCT?

I just thought of something when you said overclock... Is it the Turbo boost that makes it Bluescreen? Since my pc idles at 1600mhz and when i run a game it runs at 3,8ghz. Can this be the problem? And it only crashes in BF3, randomly.

Yes it could be the problem, disable any overclocks or any overcloking/tuning programs. Such programs are Asus SmartDoctor, PC Probe or Intel Turbo Boost.
