BSOD + a bunch of other issues. Any common denominator?

Recently I've had a lot of issues with my computer, some of them are probably unrelated to each other. But I still have a feeling that there is a common denominator here.
My gut feeling says that it's the RAM, but I have no way of proving this as of yet...

1. Intel Network Adapter has been faulty ay startup. Having to manually disable and enable it in the Device Manager to get it working. This happened after updating from Win 8 to Win 8.1
2. RAM won't run at any higher speed than 1333Mhz, and not at all with XMP enabled.
3. At times the sound has just completely stopped working, song in Spotify won't even start to play. And then it starts again later at random.
4. Once yesterday, when starting the computer from a cold boot. It just never started up, I could hear the machine running, but all I could see was just a black screen. Had to manually restart and then it worked.
5. But the most serious and annoying thing that's started to happen is the BSOD :Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal(tcpip.sys). It's been happening while working in After Effects CS6.

I have a minidump file that I've been trying to understand. But it's a bit over my head.

Would anyone be so kind to help my out? Just a clue to lead me in the right direction... :)

And here are my computer specs:
OS: Win 8.1 x64
CPU: Intel i7-3930K @3.2Ghz
MB: GigaByte-X79S-UP5-WIFI LGA-2011
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 2133 MHz CL9
GPU: nVidia 580 GTX

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

On Mon 11.11.2013 11:16:15 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\111113-34109-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: tcpip.sys (tcpip+0x4FCD2) 
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x3C, 0x2, 0x1, 0xFFFFF80002852CD2)
file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\tcpip.sys
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: TCP/IP Driver
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. 
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

I guess it has something to do with the network drivers, as it is mentioning TCPIP.sys
But what exactly?
