BSOD/Cold booting on FEAR 3 and Portal 2 loading screens
Hi all, new poster here, so please be fair.
2 days ago Portal 2 was playing fine, but yesterday I upgraded my CPU (to an AMD FX 4100 Quad Core Black edition), motherboard (Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P) and my Ram (4GB DDR 3). I figured I could just swap the components and keep going without reinstalling windows 7. But after swapping everything and loading up Portal 2 would just cold reset on me on the loading screen.
I've tried reinstalling windows 7 today and I'm in the process of reinstalling Portal, but now another game I've just purchased, FEAR 3 is now also cold resetting on the loading logo.
I've tried going through a few other suggestions, like running steam on just one core, with no luck. I've got a crash report below and attached the zip file. Any ideas?
I have a theory that it might be my PSU, which runs about 550W. (Also brand new)

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.
Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress
If you are overclocking STOP.
Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.
