Windows 7: BSOD when watching media or after gaming

BSOD when watching media or after gaming


I have been getting BSOD when watching youtube vids or watching Twitch. Today was my first BSOD after playing some counter strike. It has never happened during gaming before, only when watching videos.

I am running on a fresh install of windows 7 64bit.
New hardware installed in the last 30 days: asus gtx 980 and Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz.
Attempts at fixing the issues: Revert nvidia drivers, memtest on ram(no errors shown), also done chkdsk and sfc sacn with no errors on HDD.

Dump files are uploaded. Thanks for taking your time.
