Windows 7: BSOD randomly during high GPU usage

BSOD randomly during high GPU usage

As the title says, I've been getting some random BSOD's as well as an occasional shutdown (no error messages displayed). This seems to happen when my CPU and GPU are under strain, such as when I'm running a distributed computing application (BOINC).

I've attached the .zip of the issue, any help would be appreciated!

Thank you.

EDIT: I just got another BSOD while playing a game. At this point I would guess GPU driver, but I checked that I am up to date.

EDIT: I've also tried chkdsk/ malwarebytes/ and memtest, no errors.
