Windows 7: Random BSOD x124 caused by hal.dll

Thanks for your thought on the CPUs. My temps with the H60 are super low. At idle its 28c and during the few games I tried to start it'd barely hit 55c. My gpu idles at 51c. After my vanilla I stall I only have MSE (Microsoft security essentials) running. I have ccleaner installed and 2 temp monitor apps. I still haven't installed my ssd, need another sata cable. But I want to install it with a clean version of windows and then install everything one at a time. (apps and updates)

However, I'm reluctant to do all that if rePlacing the CPU is gonna fix it.

so lasr night after 6 hrs without a bsod, i decided to try gaming. i played about 2 hrs no trouble then my keyboard just quit working. Batteries didnt help, so i stopped for the night.

i was excited i got to do anything for that long. i did monitor my cpu temps, the gpu hit 90% while gaming with temps right at 70c. the cpu ran at 50c.

then this morning wanted to try again, BSoD! (while searching google for keyboards) So heres the dump. i just want to rule out anything other than the cpu.

So, you should go for the Prime95 test, I think!

Thank you ARC, just so I know I'm doing this right and looking for the right stuff, how should I run Furnark and what should I be watching for?

An afterthought here. MSI boards aren't the sharpest tool in the shed and if it has a malfunctioning socket or chipset, it could appear the CPU is bad.
Unfortunately the only way to test is swapping hardware.

Here's the results of my test. I let it run 3 hrs. Core temps maxed at 49c

What mobo's do you recommend?

So, CPU can take the stress, and not causing the crashes.

Test the GFX card, too?

Sorry, but for stop 124, it is the only way to troubleshoot, to identify what part of hardware is causing the trouble.

i ran the test for 15 min, but i don't know where it logged the data to??
Everything seemed fine. No artifacts. temps leveled out at 83c at 1:30.

this was the test i just ran last week.

So, we've essential ruled out by testing cpu, gfx, and the memory, multiple times now for 3 weeks. I'm left to say the mobo is bad and that will be my next purchase. Again I'm hoping for bang for buck and don't wanna spend more than $100, but I want room for improvement.

Any suggestions?
