4 BSODs while using chess program. "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

Over the last 3 weeks, I've had 4 BSODs while using chess program. System is 3.5 years old and have not had regular BSODs until recently. System is O/C to 4.4 MHz but this has never been an issue due to excellent water cooling.
7/13/16 BSDOD The bug check string referenced above has bug check code 0x0000000a and caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe.
7/3/16 BSOD: had bug check string "System_PTE_Misuse" caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe.
6/26/16 BSOD had bug check string "Attempted_write_to_readonly_memory" caused by driver "Netio.sys".
6/4/16 BSOD had bug check string "Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" caused by "fltmgr.sys".
Thanks in advance to the experts.

I wouldn't be too quick in ruling out overclocking. It has been known to cause a variety of problems, even when temperatures are well within safe limits.

Another BSOD

Thanks for the reply.
I just had another BSOD while in the chess program.
Stop: 0x0000007E with 3 drivers possibly causing problem "fltmgr.sys" ; ntoskrnl.exe ;
and USBSTOR.sys
Bug check string: "System_thread_exception_not_handled"

Based on the zip file I uploaded, did you see any commonalities between the 4 BSODs?

I am not a BSOD expert but they seem to be all unrelated. And that is the point. It would seem to be a hardware issue and as the system is overclocked that is an obvious suspect. I have no other suggestions.

Hi Eric:
I use a variety of chess programs. But the relevant BSOD aspect is that a chess program, like Prime, will push all 6 cores to near maximum usage. Have you looked at my zip file?
If the causes of the 5 BSODs are unrelated, which is more likely: a bad SSD (where Windows is), or corrupted Windows files?

Axe0:
Here is this morning's DM Log Collector, including both 7/13/16 BSODs.
I appreciate having a Gold Medalist reviewing my case.

Please revert back all overclock to stock for RAM, GPU & CPU, overclocking while troubleshooting may only lead to more trouble even when the overclock may seem stable.

Please update the BIOS to version 4805.

Please check your SSD for firmware updates.

Please remove ASUS AI Suite 3, it uses drivers that are known for causing BSODs.
