Yea, hardware problems are the only reason I venture into crashes and debugging. I believe we have covered everything on the list. Almost every component has been replaced and tested, except the motherboard. bios and drivers updated,prime, Memtest and furmark run, bios settings covered. 0X124 is a general hardware fault, but not specific at all.
