Windows 7: BSOD Random Windows 7 Crash, error 0x00000124

BSOD Random Windows 7 Crash, error 0x00000124

I'm having a problem with my computer. I built it myself and overclocked it not too long ago maybe about 5-6 months ago. It passed all the stress tests fine when I overclocked and it was running great but after about 2 weeks later it started to bluescreen once in a while and since then it's been bluescreen. I noticed that when it's cooler in my room, it doesn't bluescreen as often but usually it bluescreens ones a day. Before it displays the BSOD, it freezes for about 10-15 seconds then BOSD shows up. Now for some reason its not creating the error log in minidump folder. I even have the correct settings but it still doesn't create the logs. So I decided to take a picture with my cell phone. It does blue screen even if I'm not playing any games. I'm using h60 water cooler and I got i7 2600K overclocked to 4.6. Any ideas? Please help because I cannot figure out what the problem is.

Thank you in advance.

The stop code 0x124 is normally indicative of hardware failure, there is not much information that it provides, but I can tell you right now from the sounds of things it is being caused by your overclocking and is likely crashing so hard that it does not have time to generate the needed dump files. Chances are all you need to do is stop over clocking and return your system to its normal speeds to rid yourself of this problem.

Hello Since 25-01-2013 I have received around 40 BSOD. I know it is most likely a hardware error because of the stop code but I have no idea as to which component it is so I was wondering whether any of you people could tell that out from the dump files. If it is not possible to see which...
