Windows 7: Strange BSOD Issue With Custom-Built PC, Error 0x124

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Strange BSOD Issue With Custom-Built PC, Error 0x124

The issue started about a year ago, when I fully assembled the computer. Whenever I would play a graphically-intensive game, such as DayZ, the game would play for around 10 - 30 minutes, and then all of a sudden, the computer would just shut off.

Seems like 50% of the time, the screen would just go black, but the machine would just stay on, continually, until I was forced to do a manual restart. The other 50% of the time, the screen would do something... Strange. Then, the computer would reboot on its own, and a message box would appear saying something along the lines of, "Windows has recovered from an unexpected error".

This is a very irritating issue that I absolutely adore the thought of getting solved.

Any and ALL help would be appreciated.

0x124's are typically related to a hardware issue and can only be isolated by stress testing the major components.

If overclocking, reset all overclocks back to their default settings and then follow these:

RAM - run for a minimum of 8 consecutive passes
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

CPU - run the HIGH test
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

Video - run the FURMARK test for 20mins
Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Storage - run the SHORT test using the DOS version

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.
