BSOD playing games error 124

Hello to everyone!
I would like some help to resolve BSOD when i try to play games.
The BSOD occurs after 10-20minutes of playing.
Actions taken:
Formated all HDD and clean install to another.
Changed PSU from 580w to 650w
Applied new thermal paste to the processor and cleaned the MB from dust
Rαned Mem test for 24 hrs
Rαned Furmark
Rαnned Prime 95
Tried to update all possible drivers
Nothing over clocked .....i think
Bios to default.

System spec:
Intel i7 950 @3.07
M/B Ecs X58B-A3 sli
Ram:Corsair DDR3 1600 3x2GB
VGA:Saphire HD 6950
SSD OCZ Vertex3 60GB

One notice:some times when i click pc properties i see 4gb of ram and i have installed 3 stick of 2gb.
Weird but mem test show no errors!

Apologies for my bad English!
Thank you for your time !

Unfortunately, your installation appears to be counterfeit, you seem to have a OEM_SLP key on a retail motherboard, please format and install with a genuine key.

Update your System Specifications with Speccy, and then copy this information into your System Specifications: Go to your UserCP, and then select Edit System Spec in the left pane. Copy the information from Speccy into the required fields. These System Specifications will then follow your every post.

How many passes with MemTest? Was it MemTest86 or MemTest86+?

How many hours with Furmark?

What other tests?

It would really helpful if you provided more information :)

Once again thank you for your time!

Tests made was:

Memtest 86 aprox for 48 hrs (each stick to different slot and all together)
Prime 95 for aprox 2 hrs
Furmark for 3hrs
Flashed my ssd osz vertex3 to new firmware (os was installed-Now replaced with WDC WD5000AAVS-00ZTB0 ATA)
I thought that ssd creating the problem.
The most of the drivers are updated.
The Error occurs exactly when try to play Battlefield 3 after 3-4 min
with other games or applications never had a problem.

Please run the Small FFT's, Large FFT's and Blend test for a few hours each. Do not let the temperature exceed 80*C.
Enable "Round off checking" before the test (see first post below tutorial).So you didn't get any errors from the programs?

Can you remember how many passes you ran?

What are your temperatures when idle and under load? You may gather this information from Speccy.

explained the problem to a friend who knows more than me , and suggested to clear the cmos by the jumper and remove the battery from MB and he told me that many times settings to the bios won't take effect if the cmos is not clear.
So i did it ... the only setting i have made is on date and time.
I hadn't BSOD since last night so far.
I ran again small fft and large
The temperatures was:
Core 0 1 2 3
Min 42 42 42 39
Max 73 76 70 72

Did you get any errors from the test? I'm glad you haven't had any more BSODs so far.
