Both of your dumps are 0x124s, these indicate a hardware error most of the time but, as is the case here, they rarely point towards which piece of hardware is failing. In this case please follow the stress and diagnostic tests listed below to try and uncover which piece of hardware is problematic.
Code:
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa800a2f8028, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 00000000ff800000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 0000000000000124, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.

Hi, I did the tests, and nothing abnormal came back! What i did notice, is that when i went into bios and set the processor clock to default, that seemed to have fixed the BSOD so far. I don't know if it's related or not but i will watch the Over Clocking maybe?
Thanks for your help, kind regards Adrian.
