BSOD watching youtube video 0x00000124

With no warning i recieved a BSOD with 0x00000124 whilst watching a youtube video on my self built windows 7 gaming PC. Have had no issues up to now and the system usually runs cool with a cpu idle of around 30 degrees C. I'm at a loss really, the system is only 2/3 weeks old. Please could you help me identify the issue?

Hi and welcome to SF bennett346 .

Since it is a one time thing I wouldn't worry too much about it, but keep tabs on the system
and if any issues arise again we will be here .

BTW, YouTube uses flash which taxes the GPU rather then the CPU,
so I would look more towards your GTX760.

Okay, i'll watch out for any more occurences if they happen. Just out of curioscity do you know what the cause of this could be or is there no indication within the files?

Not very at all, all the dump has in store is that it is a generic L2 Cache Error.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. - H2SO4

That's not fun to hear given it's my first full self build guess i will just keep an eye out for another event if one does happen.

I believe it's just the opposite. Flash is 2d and frames are not rendered or accelerated by the GPU. HTML5 is a different story.
