Random BSOD, 0x124 WHEA Uncorrectable Error

I have a PC I'm servicing that keeps going BSOD at random times.
USing WHOCRASHED, I get the generic 0x124, Hal.dll, WHEA Uncorrectable Error Response.

I managed to get a hold of the Microsoft DART software that has a crash analyzer. It points to mcupdate_authenticamd.dll

This PC is the same exact build as 20 Others at this company. This is the only one behaving this way.

We have updated the BIOS, removed/reinstalled AMD drivers, Chipset, VGA. Yet it continues.

Anyone have any experience with this?

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

This issue has been persisting for nearly a year now. I get the feeling that a piece of hardware is failing, as I've wiped and reinstalled all my drivers before. I thought it was my GPU, so I got a GTX 1070 and attempted to stream and had the exact same issue. I'll likely be getting a new hard...
