Getting BSODs 0x124... (cpu voltage question)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ive had this computer set up the way it is now for a while, and i had occasional BSODs that i assumed were software related, never persistent enough to really be a problem, but today i installed borderlands 2 and i git a few in a row ith the 0x124 error (which is supposed to mean its a hardware error)



i decided to run prime 95 and i got a BSOD pretty quick (temps were normal on everything). i ran the windows memory diagnostic and had no errors reported, i then decided to remove the CPU overclock. ive only been running prime95 for a few minutes now but its gotten far beyond where it was BSODing on me. im thinking the CPU overclock was causing the issue.


could this be a sign of wear and tear catching up to the CPU? if so would it be a bad idea to try to go back top my previous overclock and raise the voltage and see if it was a voltage issue? ive NEVER altered the cpu voltage before (its on auto) and i never had this issue to this extent. is there any risk (considering the CPU was overclocked for a few years and just started this today) in raising the voltage on a cpu this age?

btw to be honest i may have been getting these same BSODs since i built the PC, (i reinstall windows alot and never remember set the BSODs to stay on so i never get to read them) but i never had them frequently enough to cause me to go into the bios or anything. i was able to run p95 in the past without errors tho. i dont know if this is relevant but my pc used to show (in windows through any cpu monitoring programs) a clock speed of 4gigs even when idle, but at some point (like a year ago maybe) it decided to switch on whatever causes it to idle at stock speed and only display the OC when the cpu is under heavy use. (i know this is beneficial but i NEVER turned this on and it wasnt on initially.
