BSOD while Skype File Transfer, error 0x00000124


Recently my computer has been getting BSODs.

The latest was, I was using Skype File Transfer, receiving from my friend. When it was about 80% done, it freezes and BSOD happened.
In addition, I was just surfing the net, and receiving the file from my friend. My computer is well ventilated.

The Stop Code I received was, "0x00000124"

My Computer Build is:
-Cooler Master HAF X NVIDIA edition(NV-942) Case
-Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3-B3 Mobo
-Intel Core i5-2500K with a Cooler Master V6GT
-Corsair Vengeance 8GB Dual Channel 1600MHz Kit
-Palit GTS 250 512MB Graphic Card
-2 Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black(RAID 0; Data Strip Size: 128KB) via Intel® Rapid Storage Technology
-1TB Western Digital Caviar Green

I have attached all the debug info needed to this post.

I hope you guys can help.

Best Regards,
Ethan Chow.

Thank you for your prompt reply, I have overclocked my CPU to 4.20GHz via the "Gigabyte smart6 Ultility". In addition, my CPU Temp is "37-40 Degree Celsius" on idle, and "70+ Degree Celsius" at 100% CPU load. My CPU have been overclocked to 4.20GHz for close to 3 months.

I would like to check if it is somehow related to my Graphic card, because it is closed to 3years old. Or should I lower my CPU Overclock Settings?

Best Regards,
Ethan Chow.

Stop overclocking and put all your settings back to stock then monitor the situation, in all likelihood the bsods are being caused by overheating due to the overclocking.
