Core voltage idle is 1.280 and under load is 1.272-1.280, according to CPU-Z 1.57.1

Reading temps with Core Temp 0.99.8

Speedstep is still on (idle speed 1.6GHz)
I don't know how good your cooler is but at that ambient and under those volts, 70C load is too high. For comparison, my chip at 1.38v doesn't go past 65C under load (same ambient as you). Obviously cpu cooler plays a big part but still I think your temps are too high.

Also it shouldn't be dropping by 200MHz under load. Can you update on the situation? What are your settings now? How much testing have you done? Is it still crashing randomly?

I set the ram back to 1333 instead of 1600 yesterday, and it hasn't randomly crashed yet. Haven't done any more stress testing though

Here's what I found.
While 0x124 is USUALLY fixed by more vcore, the reasons why 0x124 occurs is a bit more complicated than the standard 0x101 error, which is ALWAYS a cpu core freezing from insufficient voltage (or from high heat).

0x124's are usually the result of problems between the CPU and IMC communcations crashing, as opposed to the cores actually freezing. If you get an error 0x101 bsod, then your only option is to raise vcore. If you get a 0x124 in prime, then you may have several options, amoung them raising vcore, VTT or PLL voltages. RAM timing issues or improper XMP for SB profiles can also cause this or similar bsod's.

Let us know if setting the RAM back at 1333 has reduced or removed the 0x124's.

0x124's can also occur if you're using C3/C6 states with C1E (and offsets), as well as having idle or light load voltages too low for the overclock (this is known to happen sometimes with C3 and C6). 0x124's can also happen if you use a high LLC which raises the vcore slightly at load from idle, instead of drooping it. Sometimes, raising the PLL voltage slightly can help make the system stable at the light loads, especially if the vcore rises enough with high LLC to be stable at full load testing.

If RAM was the issue then just up your VCCIO, that will keep it stable at 1600

Hmm, there is no option for VCCIO

I have CPU Core, DRAM, PCH, CPU PLL, VTT, and VCCSA
