    ok i have a friend with a compatible am3 mobo, hes gonna let me test it out.
    I usually can get on my pc for 4 or 5 hours without an issue, however this morning I got 3 or 4 bsod in a row. (all i did was move my pc over like 6 inches) Care to take a look and see anything new or different than before?

    Exactly the same as the previous dumps! Ditto copy.

    How far have you gone through Stop 0x124 Troubleshooting ?

    It would be a rare occurrence for RAM to overheat. Maybe in such of an instance if the motherboard voltage controllers were bad.
    All the RAM fans are mostly for looks and bling.

    Hey guys, so I'm still waiting for a friend to remove the motherboard he's gonna let me try and I'm holding out on purchasing another cpu til then, however I've been reading a lot about this VRM issue with MSI mobos. Someone posted this on another site.
    I've read before here that the vdroop problems with your board are due to only having a 4pin cpu power instead of an 8pin one, at least that happened with 6-core PHIIs because the VRMs weren't capable of giving the cpu enough power.
    Could you offer any insight to this? Could I have a faulty board with VRM issues? How can I test it?

    You could have a faulty VRM, Voltage Regulator Module. That is the capacitors that are near or surround the CPU socket, some have a big heat sink on them.
    Vdroop relates to Intel CPUs. I don't know of a way for a home user to test it though.

    Sorry, this has taken me so long to respond. My friend flaked out on me and so I had to buy a motherboard, also was in the process of moving houses. I also decided to buy a new case too, since I was gonna be installing a new mobo anyways.

    So, I picked up the black Thor V2 case. Large, lots of room to breathe and large fans. Not possible to have a cooling issue now.
    Also bought the Gigabyte 990fxa-ud3, (got 2x4gb of Patriot Gamer RAM included ), new sata cables, and a 120GB SSD.

    Got everything installed and within 30min of running a game, BSoD. Same one. x124 Uncorrectable hardware failure.

    So back to the drawing board. I'm looking at the processor. Trying to decide on replacing my x6 t1100 with the x4 965 BE or a FX4170.

    Any thoughts? It'll be for surfing and gaming.
