Windows 7: Intermittent BSOD while gaming, 0x0000124

Intermittent BSOD while gaming, 0x0000124

Getting this one with increased frequency lately, either it's only happening when I'm running rather graphically intensive games with several other applications going in the background (Teamspeak or FRAPs), or... thats just the only time I notice it; which is possible since this is my nothing but gaming rig. I do pop on to surf or listen to music for short spurts, or let my kids watch netflix on it and don't seem to experience this issue under those light loads

I've removed the (very mild) overclocks from the proc and GPU. Thought it might be heat but temps are showing fine across the board (cleaned the collection of fans anyway).

I've patch'n'hacked (the junkyard wars kind of "hack", not the computer literate kind of "hack") several so called gaming-rigs over the years. Vis-a-vis questionable upgrades to OEM boxes, but this is my first completely built-from-scratch lightsab err.. computer. So I'd place user/assembler error high on the list of potentials.

here's my measurements:

Urph, I think I followed teh BSOD posting instructions properly, but I'll not wager money on it.

A stop 0x124 is mainly a hardware related BSOD.

What is expected for an overclocked system that it may face stop 0x124 BSODs .... so you need to revert your hardware back to stock settings and observe the situation.
Code:
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3300
CurrentSpeed: 3399
Also, a latest BIOS update is a good plan to fight against stop 0x124. Plan to get the Version 4105 dated 2013.07.23 from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P8Z68-V LX . Yours is ....
Code:
BiosVersion = 3703
BiosReleaseDate = 03/02/2012
Need to check some info .... like ....
  • Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.
  • Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
    eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
    Also let us know the wattage of your PSU.
Need to perform some hardware tests.

► Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.
► Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

► Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Dont run Logitech Launch LCore at startup. Remove it from there. Also update the drivers to Logitech devices. How old the device is?
Code:
    Image name: LGVirHid.sys
    Timestamp:        Tue Nov 24 07:06:48 2009 (4B0B38B0)
The XHCI (USB3) driver is also seeming very old.
Code:
    Image name: asmtxhci.sys
    Timestamp:        Thu Jun 02 07:57:46 2011 (4DE6F522)
Update it from Station-Drivers - Asmedia

Let us know the results.
