Given that re-installing Windows did not fix the problem, it is probably a hardware issue, but I would have to ask a few questions to be sure. What programs, if any, have you installed since doing a clean install of Windows?

This seems more likely to be a RAM related or motherboard related issue than CPU. CPU problems are very rare. If you want the CPU tested, take it to a computer tech support store or get another CPU from a friend that is known to be compatible with your motherboard to test the motherboard.

A few steps to try (I realize you did these, but you did not specify whether you removed dust):
1. Shut down and turn off your computer
2. Unplug your computer from the outlet
3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds (for your safety) to close the circuit and drain all residual power
4. Remove the case of your tower
5. Remove all components (including the CPU and CPU fan if you think they might be causing your issues) such as RAM, graphics card, USB cards, etc.
6. Blow out all dust from the motherboard and removed components using a can of compressed air or similar
7. Replace all components (if you remove the CPU, reapply cooling compound before re-seating the fan)
8. Put the case back on and plug the computer in and turn the computer on.

Post back the results.

Also, you can reset the BIOS to defaults to clear the CMOS, which can fix issues like what you are seeing. If you have a RAID controller, backup data before clearing the CMOS.

You may also want to follow the steps in Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try to see if you can resolve the problem through those.
Hello, this is not entirely related to my problem, but my mobo is detecting my RAM speed and timings incorrectly. It is a Kingston HyperX 1600 mhz. The mobo set it to 1333 mhz and one if it's timings to 24, where manufactures says it should be 27. IF i reset my BIOS, do you think this can solve the issue? I remember my mobo used to set the speed and timings correctly...

You could try resetting the BIOS to see, but if you are no longer having problem after replacing your display card, recommend not touching anything.

If you do end up resetting BIOS settings and doing so does not fix the problem, set your BIOS settings to manual for your RAM and follow the specifications designed for the RAM for voltage and frequency (check the manufacturer site for your particular RAM).

Yeah, I've been setting it manually so far, but I was just curious anyway. I've already started the RMA process.

Thanks all for the support!
