Windows 7: BSoD When Gaming, error 0x00000124

Windows 7 Professional x64
BSoD When Gaming, error 0x00000124

Whenever I am playing games, I will randomly receive a BSoD. It is ONLY when playing games.

My most recent error code:
0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xfffffa8007406038, 0x00000000b2000040, 0x0000000000000800)

The error code changes slightly every time, but it's always 0x00000124.

OS: Windows Professional x64
I have reinstalled multiple times

A generic response for you to peruse ...

A stop error of 0x124 is a general hardware error .
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress
Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.
