Hum that is exactly what I did mind you the latest one would not install just the next one down.

So are you getting a readout as to what BIOS version you have - been a long time since I have used the BIOS so can't remember where it is posted, but I'll go have a look .

Hum as I thought it is on the front screen of the BIOS near top right hand corner.

If I recall, there was only one dump in your upload to begin with. We need to see each dump to make sure the 0x124 error is occurring because of the same situation or if it's "floating". There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of combinations of hardware failures that produce the same general error (0x124).

I only have one BSOD dump as I clear my junk files regularly.

My last three BSOD's have been from the same error.

Looking at Event Viewer show the same critical error.

Follow these steps -

Memory:Run Memtest86+ for least 9-10 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Hard-Drive:

Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.

Additional Tests:Post a screenshot of Crystal Disk Info summary: Make sure you have the latest firmware for SSD, and ensure all the SATA and Power cables are connected to the drive.

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

Code:
chkdsk C: /f /r

I know it's not my memory I had an issue with my SSD late last year and during that time I tested my RAM using Memtest and found no issues.

My SSD is only a few months old as I RMA'd it with the manufacturer.

As of right now I have removed the overlock am running on a newer bios version. Not the latest but newer than previous. I am going to update further. I have just been busy.

No issues to report with my system since the last BSOD. It could have been my overclock or other issue.

Who knows.

Thanks for the help.

Still wouldn't hurt with the disk check mate maybe not the chips themselves perhaps the controller.
