Welcome to SevenForums

Your dumps indicate BCCode 124 which is mainly caused by defective hardware especially the processor or RAM.

Stop any overclocking if any. Run Prime 95 to test your CPU. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial: CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs).
Note that this test may overheat the CPU, ensure proper cooling.

Run a RAM test for at least 7 passes: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Post back with your results.

I have Memtested my RAM, I currently have 2 dims installed out of 4. Both passed more than 7 tests so I am assuming those are fine. For my GPU, I have sent it to EVGA and received a replacement. As for my CPU, I have Prime tested it, but i'm not sure for how long I should do it for. Any suggestions?
