Windows 7: Random idle BSOD 0x124 @ ntoskrnl.exe. ~Once / day

There's a possibility that your CPU is bad, I would recommend running the Prime95 test again as confirmation, firstly run the Small FFT's and then the Blend and Large FFT's.

Just started running the FFT test again hoping that some errors will show up.

Here is a screenshot attached of the current window. Does anything seem odd to you?

Finished all 3 tests for 2 hours. No errors found! Now what?

Okay, do you have the latest chipset driver?
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.

It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

Think I have the latest driver. Could you point me towards the one I need? Intel i5 3570k on Asrock B75 Pro3-M

As you can read in my first post I have already tested and REPLACED the RAM altogether, as well as used the different slots on the motherboard

Please also post your hardware temperatures when idle and under load:

The driver scan utility from Intel is terrible. It sees all devices as 'unknown' except for the GPU which I already have the latest drivers for.

Temperatures are idle around 35-40 and under load 60-65 according to OCCCT. As you can see in the screenshot I posted a couple posts above, 'Realtemps' listed these as high as 80-85 during a Prime95 run. They shoot almost immediately 70-80 and stay level around 80-85. Never higher.

Since the blue screens either appear in rapid succession (4x per hour) or over night when the PC is idle I think we can rule out temperature as a cause. Especially since 2 hour Prime95 runs show nothing

Just installed these drivers:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...?DwnldID=20775

Even though they list version as 9.4.0.1017 the setup installed 9.3.0.1027 (maybe older hardware?). Lets see if this helps, although I used to to have this driver installed before I re-installed Windows 7.

I have heard bad things about Kingston Value RAM, so it's a suspect.

Did you Memtest+ for several runs, would take several hours.

Random errors is usually RAM. It is Random Access Memory after all.

I just worked backwards on the thread, so you replaced all the RAM with what?

Digging further on something else as well, was going to say the Northbridge is the high speed side of the chipset (deals with the video card and RAM directly) and if it's ON the CPU (as most are on newer CPUs) .... yeah another suspect, so I too am hopeful a chipset driver COULD fix it.

Extra RAM lying around is always a good thing.
