BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - Help to find the cause

Hi Guys.

I have had the BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error for about a week now. It has no patteren and seem to happen at total random either while idle on desktop or in a game. and it can be after everything from 10 seconds to 2 hours from boot up. I have not had any recent hardware changes or new software and no new drivers recently. I have check my memory and found nothing and i have also tried to move the memory around and remove 1 of the memory sticks without it helping. I am at a total loss here and really need help trying to find the source for the crash.

The error i get is

fffffa80 15d16370
00000000 000000002
00000000 000000001

Here is some helpful information:

This error is generally from buggy software or a buggy device driver. If you haven't installed anything lately, then perhaps a buggy update got installed on your computer. Do you have auto updates turned on for any of your programs, including Windows? That could be where this issue came from.

Hello! I've been here before with almost the same system as last time. This time I have a new GPU, and I swapped because I had a BSOD-free month or so and so I didn't think it would be a problem as I thought my "home cures" had worked. So I reinstalled windows to clean my computer from trash...
