BSODs while gaming after not...
My new desktop:

Original OS: Windows 10 x64 Full retail
Approx. age of system: All hardware ~5 months
Approx. age of OS installation: ~5 months
Have you re-installed the OS? Yes
CPU: i5-6600k @ 4.6Ghz / 1.3vcore (Corsair h60 cooled; ~60C peaks)
Video Card: EVGA GTX 1070 FTW2 (Stock liquid cooled; ~50C peaks)

My computer was running fine from the date I put it together to about a month ago, when I packed it up to move (in the front seat of my car so it wouldn't be damaged). I didn't unpack it until about a week ago. I had lots of updates to do, including drivers and windows updates. Now, when I play games, I get BSOD's randomly (irql_not_less_or_equal) from ntoskrnl.exe.
I have tried: re-installed windows, attempted to roll back the GPU driver, ran windows memory diagnostic and memtest86, cleaned my registry, ran my driver update tool to update the more trivial drivers (after the BSODs started), ran prime95 to stress my CPU, set my CPU clock to factory default, and updated my bios, which ALL failed to mitigate the crashes. NB: The stress tests failed to re-produce crashes.
I remote connected with a microsoft support employee who attempted to run the verifier.exe, but just ended up rendering my computer unbootable so I had to enter safe mode and delete those settings, and a follow-up on those logs/results was never done.
Attached are the required diagnostic files.
What can someone make of this?
