Hey all, I recently upgraded my storage from an HDD to a Samsung 860 Evo 1tb ssd. I cloned my C drive from my hard drive, which contained windows, onto the ssd so that I could get faster startups. As well as that, I moved a portion of my steam library onto the drive. However, seemingly at random times, my pc crashes to BSOD because of an "irql_not_less_or_equal." I tried repairing the disk, but the issue still persists. I would really appreciate some help.

System:
CPU - Intel i5 7600k
Mobo - Asus TUF Z270 Mark 2
GPU - Nvidia GTX 1080
RAM - Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2400MHz DDR4 2x8gb
SSD - Samsung 860 Evo
HDD -2x Western Digital 1tb (dont remember exact model)

I can provide any other information too
Thanks

clean boot

check the memory by running memtest.org usb autoinstaller (bootable USB flash drive)

check the hard drive for errors with its manufacturer´s tool (samsung magician and wd life)

ok thanks for pointing that out, I switched on XMP. I ran an AIDA64 stress test for an hour and my cpu temps were between 55-65C.
