Windows 7: BSOD at random after upgrading pc

BSOD at random after upgrading pc

So i have upgraded my system a bit.
I changed the motherboard, CPU, RAM, HDD and case.
I also installed a fresh Windows 7. But i seem to be getting some random BSOD at some times. mostly after i do something. Last time it was after i Alt+tabbed out of League of Legends that i got BSOD.
I didnt really change the RAM. I added some more RAM. So now i have 2 kingston sticks of 2gb each and same with the other 2 sticks only that its Corsair. I have experimented here and removing the corsair or the kingston solved nothing.
I have tried overclocking CPU earlier but at that time i had BSOD almost instantly. Now i dont know why i am getting it.
I could really appreciate some help...
EDIT: now my cpu is not overclocked at all and for now i havent gotten any BSOD but i will test some more..

Windows 8.1 Pro x64

While the dump files are processing:


Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	
This program is a known causer of blue screens, so please uninstall.

Dump files:

Probably caused by : AuthenticAMD 

BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa80079d8028, b6004000, b0000135}
Bug check is a hardware problem. Most of the time it is caused by bad hardware, and incompatible hardware. I have a feeling it is your RAM sticks to be honest. But we will go all out to get rid of any option that it could be.

Make sure you follow these steps to the T.

BugCheck 0x124
You have a 0x124 hardware bugcheck. If the system is still under warranty, I would recommend sending it in to have diagnostic tests done and any bad hardware replaced.

warning   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement that link.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:
    • SSD firmware
    • BIOS Version
    • Chipset Drivers
    • Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
    • If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

  • Run all but the advanced tests with SeaTools for HDDs.
    SeaTools for Windows

    SeaTools for DOS
  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Remember to read closely through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try for the crash.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

I have already tried to look at the temperature. I had some problems earlier with the heat inside my case but I cleaned all the filters some day earlier and added one more fan and the temperature became normal.
Now when idle these are the temperatures:
GPU: 59C/138F
MB: 31C/88F
CPU: 41C/106F
CPU Core 1,2,3,4: 34C/93F
HDD: 27C/81F

When under load its:
GPU: 71C
MB: 41C
CPU: 57C
CPU Core 1,2,3,4: 52C
HDD: 41C

As for the GPU, its been this hot for ages now and according to the specs of the graphics card, max temp is 105C.
The rest i will test some other day because of two reasons:
1. I havent now gotten a single BSOD in almost 2 days
2. Im busy with high school stuff. Have just only the weekends for things as this. I need this computer to work while im doing my homework.

Thank you for the help and I will post again if something comes up :)

Fixed it all with just heightening the CPU voltage. Can't believe it was so simple...
