BSOD Running CERTAIN Games, error 0x00000124

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 21 Model 1 Stepping 2
Processor Count: 6
RAM: 16365 Mb
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series, 1024 Mb
Hard Drives: A: Total - 1330795 MB, Free - 932641 MB; C: Total - 99899 MB, Free - 25756 MB;
Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., GA-990FXA-UD3
Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

I can't pin point the problem.. it's driving me mad. My computer keeps blue screening when I run games, but it's not all games. I can run Guild Wars 2 on the max settings but I can't run a cell shaded game like Mabinogi on medium settings. Borderlands 2 crashes my computer literally the second I double click it and press PLAY on Steam. Please, help, I'm losing my mind in anger.

One thing, my PSU's fan died but I got an external fan to blow air into it from the back, since then I've been able to play all the games that would've otherwise overheated my computer and shut it down, so it's not that. This is a new problem. I've cleaned the holy hell out of it with Advance System Care Ultimate 7, SuperAntiSpyware, IOBit Uninstaller, I've done it all. Changed power settings, made sure my graphics card wasn't overheating/overclocking..

HELP

Hi There,

These are hardware related,

Code:
BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa800da6c8f8, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : hardware

Followup: MachineOwner
Here's some info and things to try,

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Let's do 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

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

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. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results.

And get rid of that IOBIT garbage you're playing with, that stuff is snake oil.

Well I got rid of the IOBit like you recommended. It handled Furmark well enough, it got up to 79 degrees Celcius and kind of plateaued there. I stress tested the CPU with 6 testers and none of them came up with any errors. I am not overclocking anything, I've never taken any efforts to even attempt overclocking. The computer isn't hot, I don't think, it's been running for a few hours and these are the Speccy temperatures. Is it a power voltage failure when I run a game or something?

You did all those tests in 20 mins. ?

You can check your voltages with HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools

Here's a PSU test also,

PSU - Test DC Output Voltage

You will need a Multimeter for that.

I was testing them before your message, I had done some research but I need more help..
