Probably caused by : GenuineIntel

Best thing to do in this case is to follow this guide: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Follow it step by step. You will know that is is hard to determine the source of a stop 0x124; and it will take a time.

EVGA rep told me:

Right off the bat I see a couple things that may be either the problem or a software reporting issue. First off, I see the memory is reporting at 815Mhz. It should be reporting 800Mhz, so there may be an overlcock set that's causing the system to become unstable. Likely this will be on the bclk. Another thing I noticed was the vcore is reporting at 1.808v. That's extremely high, to the point it can cause damage to the processor. The vcore should be around 1.3v. The combination of these two is likely causing your system to be unstable. I suggest starting with a BIOS reset to set everything back to default. Then go in to the BIOS, confirm that the vcore is somewhere around 1.3v and that the bclk is at 100Mhz. Save and restart, then test your system and see if it's running any more stable.

dumb question about bios updates. Do I need to do them in order or will grabbing the newest one be ok?

Your BIOS version is 0702 of 2014/05/09. But within this short time it released a number of updates, and the latest one is Version 1204 of 2014/06/24. There must be a reason for such a frequent update. Get the Version 1204 from Motherboards - Z97-A - ASUS and install it.

Be aware that BIOS update is a very critical task and you need to be very careful while doing it. Any disruption during the process might be fatal.

If the BIOS update is not helpful, follow the other steps of the 124 troubleshooting, too.

I believe my problem is solved. BIOS update, case is closed off with side panel now - not a single hiccup
