Windows 7: Intermittent BSOD when playing SWTOR, stop error 0x124

Have you checked with the motherboard documentation, which slots should be used for your RAM? Some motherboards require that the RAM is inserted into specific slots on the motherboard.

It seems that Stick B is not compatible with Slot 4.

Yes, I checked the documentation when I built the system. Slots 2 and 4 are supposed to be used first, which is why I initially questioned running memtest on (1) stick in EVERY slot, but the test ran fine despite this.

I understand that the test result implies that somehow stick (B) is incompatible with slot (4), but this defies any sort of logic. Stick (B) is identical to stick (A), they are from the same package, same batch, their serial numbers are even sequential. It is possible that one is good and one is bad, but if one works in all slots, and the other works in every slot except one, this must just be a coincidence, and the problem just now popped up this far into the testing and is caused by some other component.

If stick (B) were truly the problem, then I shold not get the BSOD when using ONLY stick (A). But that is exactly what happens. That simple test I performed initially, without the need for any memtest software, should have completely excluded RAM as a logical cause of the trouble, except for the rare instance that BOTH ram sticks were bad. However your recommended RamTest86+ test seems to have proved that at least 1 stick is good, and all the slots are ok (especially slot 4), and if that is the case, by logical deduction, neither stick can be bad. That is, unless, there is someone in these forums that ould be willing to admit that 18 error free passes overnight on memtest86+ is NOT sufficient to troubleshoot a memory stick.

I really wish I another "known good" ram stick just to eliminate ram from the troubleshooting process entirely...

Do you have any tips on identifying a trouble cause between a potentially bad CPU/GPU/memcontoller (the 3570k) and a bad MOBO or MOBO socket? I just have a feeling my problem is somewhere between these 2.

The only other possibility is the PSU right?
Is there a way to really stress test the PSU and indentify or eliminate it as the cause vs the CPU or MOBO.

Once again thanks for your guidance!

You could run a CPU test with the specified program above, it will also give the voltages of your PSU. I wouldn't recommend using the PSU test, since it stresses all the hardware all at the same time, and can damage some PSUs.
