Windows 7: BSOD BCCode 124 While playing certain games at certain times

BSOD BCCode 124 While playing certain games at certain times

Hey All,

This is my first post on the website so I hope that I'm doing everything right.

My PC (which is a brand new custom build from December 2014) Will get a BCCode 124 BSOD every now and then whilst playing games. This happens very randomly and can happen straight away, or take a while (2 -3 hours of solid gaming on Ultra graphics) or it just does not happen at all.

It is worth noting that I have run Memtest86 fully (3 times already) as well as stress tested my CPU with Prime95 for upwards of 7 hours. As well as run a Furmark test for 2 hours straight. None of these came with any errors or caused any form of crash on my PC. It is also worth noting that the temperatures during these benchmarks went WELL in excess of anything generated during gaming (as reported by HWMonitor). The final thing is that my drivers are mostly kept well up to date!

Any help (short of full system format) would be greatly appreciated. The dump files are attached according to the post on uploading dump files. I realise there are quite a few in here! If there is any other information I need to provide please let me know!
This info is from the latest BSOD that I got.

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that can cause the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is completely unreliable, and for this reason most analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine copy of Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation and are still experiencing BSODs, upload your new logs we will be happy to help you solve them.

Cool thanks. The only reason is that I am unable to get hold of a legit copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and I am no fan of Windows 8 at all. But, if that is what it takes I'll try to make a plan.
