BSOD at seemingly random, often restarted after I return from AFK

Running a i5-3570k with 8 gb of ram, Samsung 830 SSD. Windows 7 ult x64.

No particular activity seems to be the trigger, if someone could take a look of the dump, I'd appreciate it greatly.

Please let me know if any additional information is required.

I'll take a look at the dump.

Have you updated to the latest firmware for your SSD?

Seemingly Random BSOD
Hello, I've been dealing with with BSOD for sometime now(came out of nowhere). I now know that my earlier BSOD were most likely caused because of my GPU drivers so I've done a clean install of the current driver version but I'm still getting BSOD at random.

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...
