WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR caused by Ntoskrnl.exe apparently

I have constant Blue Screens or system crashes. On Blue screen viewer it says

WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR was caused by caused by Ntoskrnl.exe

and WhoCrashed says

On Tue 4/26/2011 3:45:46 PM your computer crashed
This was likely caused by the following module: hardware

Bugcheck code: 0x124 (0x0, 0xFFFFFA80037CD8F8, 0x0, 0x0)
Error: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR

Dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\042611-21906-01.dmp

What is going on.
Another thing is that it crashes during Games and one certain game especially.

Looks like a hardware or driver issue. Video is a good place to start. Have your video drivers been updated lately, i.e., by you or windows update? If by windows update, you could uninstall the update, or System Restore to a point pre-dating the problem. If this solves the problem, just be sure to change update settings to manual until the driver update reappears so that you can hide that update.

If the drivers haven't been recently updated, I suggest first unseating and reseating the video card, RAM and other cards (being sure to unplug the machine first and ground yourself (i.e., bare arm against case) against the machine before handling the cards). If the blue screen still occurs, try updating your drivers with mfr's drivers.

If the problem still exists after this, post your blue screen data in the Crashes and Debugging forum as stated here:

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

This is a hardware error caused by defective components such as CPU, RAM, GPU etc

This is likely a RAM/GPU issue
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Test your GPU http://downloads.guru3d.com/OCCT-(Ov...load-1880.html
Are you overclocking?

The problem lies in your CPU, software/drivers are absolutely not involved in this crash
Check if your CPU is properly seated in the socket and ensure that it is not overheating

This test below will tell us if your CPU is defective or not
information   Information

Run Prime 95 again to test your CPU.. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial: CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs). Post back with your results.

I had something done to the CPU about a year ago, I cant remember what it was. I remember having to go get the stuff to put underneath of the CPU like the coolant or whatever, How do i make sure it is seated correctly and everything?

You may be referring to thermal paste/grease
Just remove the CPU, apply new thermal paste and re-seat it in the socket
Then perform the test above but monitor the CPU temperature with Core Temp

Yes it could possibly be a cause, just reset your BIOS to default values
