Windows 7: BSOD randomly occurring "IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL"

BSOD randomly occurring "IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL"

Just built a computer 2 days ago and a BSOD has been randomly occurring whether I am doing something on it or not. I have gotten a variety of BSOD's one of which was "IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL." I thought it might have been bad ram so I have tested each stick of ram on multiple passes with no errors and I did a stress test on the video card. Finally I updated Windows 7 completely. Yet I still get a BSOD and I have exhausted my troubleshooting techniques. Attached it the performance monitor report and the dmp's. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance

System specs:
Windows 7 64bit
Amd Phenom II black edition 3.6ghz
8gb of ram
WD 500gb blue HD
EVGA gtx 550 ti

3 of these were memory corruption (probably a driver), the remaining one (BCC101 clock_watchdog) is troublesome on a two day old machine.

Is it under warranty?

The memory corruption can be diagnosed as can the BCC101 but it relates to the CPU>

Thank you for the hasty response. I built it but yes the parts are under a 30 day warranty. What drivers would you suggest removing and reinstalling?

Hi everyone, I recently have noticed more and more BSODs. I had this problem about 6 months ago and was able to track it down to drivers that came from Daemon tools. I cleared all that out and it fixed the issue. I don't think these new BSODs are related but they might be. This seems to be...
