Windows 7: BSOD While Playing Dota2

BSOD While Playing Dota2

Hi there, so I have been having a real issue while playing DOTA2 recently. I frequently get BSOD that say I have a hardware error. It usually happens while I am streaming, but it does happen even when I am not. I have checked my temperatures and they are really good, I am not overclocking anything. When I first bought this computer my video card had some problems a couple months into it, I replaced it and I was running fine for about a year and a half and then I started to get the blue screens. I figured I had another video card problem again somehow so I went into my garage and borrowed my brothers old(still very new) video card, it seemed to help, but after a couple days I got the blue screens again so I can't tell if my computer is breaking video cards or there is a seperate problem all together. Here is my dump report:

I'm not entirely sure how to go about fixing this issue, I never seem to crash doing anything else only during DOTA2, so maybe I have some sort of driver issue? I checked everything I could think of and I feel like I should be up to date, but this BSOD problem is really something else to me =/

Thanks for the help,

BCCode 124 is mainly caused by defective hardware, possible causes involve the CPU, RAM or GPU. Here the likely cause if your CPU.

Test your RAM sticks individually RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Shall any errors appear you should replace your RAM sticks(s).

If the RAM test comes clean proceed to test your CPU with Prime95. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial: CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs).

Note that this test may overheat the CPU, ensure proper cooling.

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Post back with your results.

Means that the RAM is indeed defective, replace the bad sticks.
