It happens at random times, but 99% of the time its when i browse for new servers.
The blue screen says “kernel security check failure”.
VGA: GeForce GTX 660m 2 GB
RAM: DDRIII 6GB (1x 2GB, 1x 4GB)
HDD: 750GB 7200 RPM
OS: Windows 8 64 bit
That thread suggests this frequently happens in the case of some sort of hardware failure (bad RAM, unstable CPU overclock); it may also happen in the case of an unstable driver.
Try running the memory diagnostic as described here:

Also, if you’re overclocking your CPU, reduce the overclock or restore it to stock speeds and see if there’s a stability improvement.
In the case that it’s a driver issue, the only thing I can recommend is checking and updating all of your various system drivers, especially the video driver.
