Windows 7: Random BSOD when there is no load on the PC

Random BSOD when there is no load on the PC

Throughout this week my PC has bluescreened about 3 times, all three times occured when the PC was NOT under a load. Mostly happens when i'm on google chrome for some reason. My Temperatures are fine CPU + GPU idle at 30 degrees Celsius. Under a gaming load the CPU sometimes hits 50ish degrees and GPU sometimes 40-60. I have ran a memory test so I can rule RAM out of the question too. I was thinking about undoing the OC done to the CPU but the thing is that I have had this OC for months now without any issues up until this point so it just seems strange. Drivers are all updated.

CPU: i5 4670k @ 4.2 GHz with custom cooler
GPU: 7770 OC
RAM 8GB 1600 MHz
PSU: Corsair TX750V2 750 watt
Motherboard: ASUS Z87 PLUS
Storage: Intel 120GB SSD + Internal 500 GB HDD
Fans: About 4 decently sized fans

PC is blue screening randomly caused by driver atikmdag.sys

Using blue screen view I have found out that my blue screens are being caused by a driver called atikmdag.sys but I have no idea how to go about fixing the problem. I have reinstalled my video drivers but I have yet to see another blue screen as it doesn't happen too often. Another thing to note is that it happens even when my PC isn't under any load other than having a web browser open or something.
