Bsod on startup error 0x101/0x124

I have been having this problem for a while now but recently it has gotton alot worse to the point where i can barely even turn my computer on i can only get into windows for about 5 minutes max before it blue screens and in safe mode it doesnt do it quite as often but it still happens
My computer is fairly new about 4 months old and my specs are
fx 6100 6 core amd cpu
radeon 7870 2 gb
8 g ram
crosshair v formula mobo
Most of the crashes are 0x101 and then it says something like a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor also sometimes its a 0x124 error and it does not say the clock interrupt thing but those are alot less common the files from the diagnostic tool are attached thanks in advance

For stop 0x101, follow STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg
For stop 0x124, follow Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

As a starting point, you take these three tests:

► Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

► Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

► Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight, per RAM module per slot.

Well i have already ran 18 passes of the memtest a few days ago with no errors and for prime95 within about 10 seconds of starting it my computer blue screens and then for furmark after i installed it an error popped up saying failed to initalize zoomgpu or something like that and then it closes i think that might be because im doing it in safe mode but im not sure and i cant test that because if i dont use safemode then the computer blue screens after about a minute
