You have tested the hardware components, but also checked for driver updates?
The error 0x124 is often caused by hardware damage, overclocking or driver problems.

The cause is a read error with the level 1 cache from the CPU.
Please make sure you are not overclocking anything, if you do, revert back to stock and test the system

No overclocking at all.
We ruled out driver problems.
I might try to underclock the CPU to lower values than the default and see if anything changes.
It's weird though as the crashed aren't related to stress, I've just stressed the computer with Prime95 for an hour and everything was stable. There are times where the computer just reboots when surfing the web or minesweeper.

Just to be sure, please check AMD for CPU driver updates

Well CPU drivers are not something I'm familiar since 10 years ago, couldn't find anything in the link you gave except gpu drivers.

Try it for a couple of hours, an hour might not be enough.

Well 4 hours and it's still stable as a rock.
When the computer is stable, it won't crush for the whole duration of time when I'm working/playing on it, but if I restart/computer goes to sleep, chances are things won't be as solid as before.

Have you checked for any dirt/dust in the case?

Dust can cause so much trouble, you can't imagine.
It is adviced to clean the components once in a while, like once in a month.

Well I cleaned everything from top to bottom, computer was very stable for a while. Now just got a random reboot while playing Starwars : Battlefront and listening to an online radio. Nothing too special.

From Event Viewer, nothing else;
""The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.""
