It seems that the error you are getting now is a 0x124 error which usually indicates a hardware problem.

Taking a look at the error record we can see that the processor made a call to one of its busses and there was a time out reported causing the system to crash.

Now this type of crash isnt always caused by hardware errors, you can try updating your bios (which can be found on the manufacturers website) and any drivers on your system, I.E. sound, network, videocard. If you still receive crashes after that please run prime95 for some hard ware tests: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

I am doing the tests now but I am not sure what I am looking for if it is a hardware issue.

Prime95 is meant to put a full load on your CPU which causes it to heat up, check the temperatures durring the test and report them here when they max out, also Prime 95 may throw errors if there is an actual problem with the processor.

Should I do a different setting instead of "Small FFTs"?

For the best results select the blend test it covers the most components report back your results.
