Random BSODs with Win7

Hi,
As of a few days ago I keep getting random BSODS. I've run BlueScreenView to see what caused the problem and in the three instances that i've had a BSOD, all 3 were different.
The first one was caused by monitor.sys, 2nd by wfplwf.sys and 3rd by netio.sys

Here are my specs:
CPU: Intel Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz [1.24 Vcore]
MOBO: Asus Maximus II Formula
RAM: Corsair 4Gb 800mhz
GPU: XFX 6950
PSU: Corsair 750W
HD: OCZ Vertex 2 120Gb

Any suggestions as to what these BSODS are related to (and how to stop them from happening)?
If any more information is needed, please tell me. This is becoming quite a nuisance :(

Because your BSOD's are happening at random intervals it will be difficult to identify where the problem lies. I would eliminate software as the BSOD reason by reinstalling windows 7 after returning your clocks to normal.

I would undo your overclock and see if you still get the bluescreens.

Ok I will try that. The funny thing is, it's been stable on that speed for over 4 months now. A couple of months ago I decided to up the speed a tad from 3Ghz to 3.2Ghz (due to me getting that new GPU). I've run prime95 for 24 hours (Blend Test) and the OC passed the test. Back to the drawing board I guess :(

This may very well be a driver issue. Which graphics driver version are you using?

Currently I am on Catalyst 10.12. I've just realized there's a 11.3 update. Gonna install that one and see if the BSODs still occur.
Btw: When I first got the new GPU, I had problems with the drivers (dont know what version that was anymore, i believe 10.11). I'd get random BSODs but the faulty driver could be directly related to the GPU. In this case, a quick google search did not help me establish an association between the drivers actually causing the BSOD and the GPU...but then again...I'm by no means an expert :)
