I have a basically BRAND new computer, and every time I game or put the computer under pressure (more notable that it will always BSOD after playing "South Park: The Stick of Truth" for a little)
It's been happening for a while. Here's a screenshot of the BSOD itself (It's one of the attachments)

My PC info is on my account.

Here is the .dmp file that it gave me the last time it BSOD'd (I found it at C:\Windows\minidump\. I put the file in a .zip folder because it wouldn't let me upload a .dmp file, it's one of the attachments)

The 0x124 error comes from a hardware complaint, and by the looks of your dump files, it's your CPU that's causing the trouble.

Try to stress test your CPU by following this tutorial, and inform us of the results.

Best of luck,

I ran the stress test (I followed all the instructions and got the correct bit version, as well as closed all my running programs before opening it) within less than 2 minutes my computer froze and then I received another blue screen of death (y) !
Here is the file with the information about the new BSOD I received. .-.

I noticed in your System Specs the power supply is unknown.
Could you look and see what it is and inform us?

Corsair 500 CX is my power supply. It's pretty new, only like a year or two old. I bought it myself.

So I know it isn't my graphics card (If it

was , I have two so I'd just switch them

I know it is most likely my CPU even

though it is seriously BRAND NEW. My old

computer had a bad CPU and would overheat

after moments of boot up, so I got a new

one to find out I cannot game without

And I ran the stress test for the CPU and

it BSOD'd (I have the dmp files for it

above) after less than two minutes into

the test
So I'm thinking it's the CPU
(I used Prime95 to check it)

Here are the other tests I've ran that you

told me to and here are its results

This is for my HDD
in SeaTools windows i ran the short

generic test on my current HDD and it came out as "Short Generic - Pass" , so I think it's fine

Ram takes several hours to do so i'll post results tomorrow (ill do it over night)
however, I'm not too sure it's my ram.
