Windows 7: PC Freezes and makes Buzzing Noise when Running Games

We seem to have drifted away from the temperatures you reported, if prime95 fails quickly then this is almost certainly an overheating issue

Did you fit the cooler properly, are you familiar with the process and did you invest in some decent thermal compound
I know you say temps dropped after you fitted water cooling but 40+ at idle sounds high to me for water cooling

But that aside if your machine is crashing under gaming then gfx temps need to be looked at also, check gfx fans are spinning freely and clear of dust
0x124 errors are hardware based, although this is not always true it is the place to start

I think I will agree with you, it must be an heating issue.
As you remember I said that i had some difficulties installing the water cooling system.
Checked everything when I boughr the water cooler that it matches, socket-1156,1155.
But when I got it and were going to install it, it was like a little to big.
Followed the instruction were your supposed to place a metal thingy over the plastic though the plastic didn't fit 100% so I needed to use an knfie to cut some off to get it on place.

And the bolts that are going into the mother board from the cooler:
3 of them is standing 90 degrees fit perfectly
While the last one is.. what can I say? Unable to get it right. if I force it in its standing like 70-80 degrees + I am not able to fit it 100% its just a loose bolt you could say.
