BSOD while playing ArmA 3, ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x153FA0)

I've had problems with this for a while now. I will randomly BSOD during Arma 3 and other games. Temps are known to be good, CPU runs at about 40C under load, GPU runs at about 55-60C during heavy gameplay on ultra graphics settings. Most definitely not a cooling issue. I'm pretty sure it is driver/software related. I suspect the network card is the culprit, but I've been wrong a few times on this already.

System Specs:
windows version: Windows 8.1 , 6.2, build: 9200
windows dir: C:\Windows
Hardware: G1.Sniper Z97, Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
CPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz Intel586, level: 6
8 logical processors, active mask: 255
RAM: 17103687680 total
GPU: EVGA GTX 780

Crash dump files as instructed from the sticky in the forums:

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

Do you still need help with this problem?
I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.
