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

The PSU is a good point, please enter your BIOS, and then post the following output for the 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails.

Please calculate the recommended wattage for your PSU with - eXtreme Power Supply Calculator

I'm having a look at the dump file now, I'll post the results in the next post.

It seems to blame the Level 2 cache again, I understand we have run a CPU test already, but not every test is perfect, so let's begin testing with the IntelBurnTest which is more intensive than Prime95, and been designed for Intel CPUs (can work with AMD's):

here are the bios values for the different voltages:

All settings are on AUTO

CPU Offset: 0mv
IGPU Offset: 0mv
DRAM: 1.585v
VTT: 1.076v
PCH: 1.059v
CPU PLL: 1.832v
VCCSA: 0.925v

The Hardware info section in the bios gives the following readouts:
Vcore 1.120 - 1.136 (fluctuating)
12v: 12.091v
5v: 5.088v
3.3v: 3.408v

I have just replaced the PSU with a much stronger PSU from my main system (620W Coolermaster) AND IT ALSO CRASHED AFTER A WHILE. So I think we can safely rule out the PSU as the possible cause.

The Voltage settings remained the same on AUTO, but with my other PSU installed the HW info read the following;
Vcore 1.128 - 1.136 (fluctuating)
12v: 12.091-12.144v (fluctuating)
5v: 4.992v
3.3v: 3.328v

I will now run that IntelBurnTest and get back to you.

EDIT: I have added the crash dump from the latest crash which was with the other heavier PSU.

The voltages look fine, and I agree with you, that the PSU is not creating problems.

Again, its the exact same error, a Level 2 Cache error, although, this time the operation it was performing hasn't been specified.

I just installed a new i3 processor from the same store to replace the (most likely) faulty i5 3570k.

If this solves the problem I will return the faulty i5

I did not run IntelBurnTest yet

I am currently running Prime95, YouTube playlist on loop and a heavy duty disk operation (compressing outlook files). These are the most common things which I was doing when the crashes occurred. If after 36 hours no crash has occurred I feel confident that the problem is solved. If not... only thing that remains is the Motherboard through the process of elimination

I will keep you posted!
