BSOD while playing planet explorers, error 0x00000124

I've just put a new motherboard and cpu in my computer and i've been getting a BSOD normally when i'm in a game but it has happened when it was sitting idle.

It's a fresh install of win 7 ultimate, the ram is older and i thought it might be the cause but windows diagnostic says the rams fine so i'm at a loss.

Hi Himuro.

Are you overclocking?
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3500
CurrentSpeed: 3506
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the CPU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .
