Windows 7: BSOD running prime95 with error 0x00000124 caused hal.dll

BSOD running prime95 with error 0x00000124 caused hal.dll

Just upgraded my CPU from a phenom 1090 to FX 8350 and when i run prime95 I get BSOD with error 0x00000124 in less then 2 minutes. I cleared CMOS before putting in new CPU updated bios, Fresh windows 7 install and updated all drivers. Once that was done I just felt like running a stability test with no overclock and it BSOD. Researched error and did diagnostic run on hard drive and it passed with Western Digital tool. Ran Memtest86 for six passes and it passed with no errors. I re-seated CPU tried again and same BSOD. I took CPU back and exchanged for new one thinking it was the CPU. Got home put in the new exchanged CPU and still get BSOD. I am lost. Please Help!! Is it my motherboard? I monitored temps when running prime95 and it never got over 30 degrees Celsius before BSOD. Cooling CPU with Corsair H80i Gt. I have attached the mini dump files. Please help. Also have a thermaltake 850W PSU.

Hi Grey, sorry for the late response, I've been down with a flu.

Please do memtest86+ again with the new CPU just to be sure:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

As 0x124 are hardware errors, it might be any of your hardware that go bananas.

Cheers /Boris :)
