Windows 7: BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Crashs rather randomly

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Crashs rather randomly

Sometimes the computer will run for maybe 40 minutes no problem, then it'll randomly BSOD. Other times it'll crash a minute after startup.
Maybe it has something to do with utorrent? It seems to crash most often when it's on.

Have gotten it reformatted a week ago was working fine until this sunday where after I finished a set of league games it just BSOD me.
