Windows 7: Random BSOD

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSOD

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me out with this. I've been getting some random BSODs lately and hoping someone can tell me what the cause is. I'm not sure, but it seems to happen when I plug in a USB device (flash-drive, gamepad, etc.) after the pc has been booted. Other USB devices are attached to the system and don't seem to be causing an issue. Of course, it may just be a coincidence as well.

Anyway, attached are the files. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

System Specs:
ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3
Core i5 2500K @ 4.6Ghz
Corsair 600T Chassis

1 x Crucial C300 128GB SSD (OS)
