No, for today it has been stable, I haven't tested it with the 7870 yet though.

Well, on the non-dynamic camera, it stabilized at around high 70's and low 80's after 5 or so minutes, although the fan was only about 70 percent. Is that safe or should I adjust the fan curve when I fix the problem?
Thats safe ..... and what do you mean my adjusting the Fan curve ???

On AMD's site it says that the max safe temperature is 60 degrees and if you search around, no one is recommending you go anything above mid 60's at optimal use. I wanna fix the problem but I'm really hesitant to heat up my CPU anywhere above the suggested range...
Well thats the whole point of doing a stress test !!!! I know what is recommended ... The whole point of doing a stress test is to max out the processor to see when it would give in !!! and this it should do at a resonable temperature .. well Prime will either give you an error report or it will BSOD when you reach a max temp or if there are problem with one of the core's of the processor. Now..if you have BSOD dump with Bugcheck 0x124 error.. it would probably confirm what i mentioned now.

There was no error or BSOD although I only ran it for like 2 minutes because my temperatures rapidly increased. When I used AIDA64, only the FPU test made the temperatures go up, the regular CPU test was stable after hours. When I used Prime95, there was no distinction, it was just CPU and it warmed it up.
Same as above

For now, no I ran a 15 minute furmark test on Dynamic Camera (the one that insta-crashed before) and it was stable, I also ran Cryengine for a bit which used to crash. It seems quite stable but I don't want to speak too soon.
Well like i mentioned before a Bugcheck 0x124 error on certain cases does denote to a BIOS problem as well.. So now that your BIOS is updated and your not having a BSOD... that could be the case..

But we will wait and see

Using MSI Afterburner, you can adjust it so that the fan goes to a higher speed on lower temperatures, for example, if I didn't like the fact that it was reaching 80 degrees, I could adjust it so that when the temperature gets near 80 degrees, the fan goes at 100 percent so that it cools it down.

I had updated the BIOS months before this post and the crashes were still occurring, the only thing different now is that Norton is gone, could that be a possibility? Also, keep in mind that I've only been using the computer for one day, it may not be stable but I just haven't been getting any crashes.

Alright

Stop using the MSI Afterburner to control your fan speed. let it go to 100% fan speed. and do the test..

I never actually used the Afterburner, I'm just saying that its an option. Also, the fan only gets to around 70 percent when the temperature stabilizes.

Alright guys, my GT 520 crashed again after almost a month of stability. I was playing starcraft 2 when my comp froze and then shut off.

Attached is my SF Diagnostics File for this crash

I have requested Centaur to take a look and you should go through this thread: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try if you haven't already.

Could you reupload the SF diagnostics again.. The last one you was at Jan 26th. Did you have BSOD after that.. if so upload the whole SF diag again.

I already checked the 0x124 thread and I'm on the stage of testing the hardware components

That was the last time that the computer crashed, I haven't done anything to make the system crash in that time so that SF file is relevant. I really just want to know if it's the processor.
