Sorry for the long post...
OK, this is really starting to bug me. I've been getting this BSOD randomly for about a month now, but more frequently recently. Last weekend, I was overclocking and keeping track of what changes to the BIOS I made, what worked, what didn't, all that jazz. I would run 15 minute OCCT runs before moving on to the next 'level', and if I got a BSOD then, I would increase volts, or whatnot. Things seemed to be normal for OCing(meaning that I know that BSOD's will happen during overclocking, usually meaning instability of some sort), but then I started getting them for no apparent reason. I turned off the Windows instant reboot when it crashes, so I could look at the codes.
The 0x00000124 seems to be prevalent. So I searched the web for info. It varies from post to post, website to website. Some say it's an nVidia driver issue, and since I just got the latest drivers, I thought that might be it. Some say it's an issue with onboard sound, but since I didn't get the Supreme FXII thing with my open-box Rampage, and it's disabled in the BIOS, I figured it wasn't this. However, I have also been experiencing random crashes that seem to stutter on the last nanosecond of a sound from a game I'll be playing (City of Heroes, Crysis, HL2), and freeze the screen, but no blue screen.
I thought it might be related to my overclock, so for simple testing purposes, I put everything back to default, including my 9800GTX. I'm tired, I've had a long day, and since the doc just told me today that my blood pressure is a bit higher than it was(and it was already a bit high), I just don't have it in me to really do anything more tonight.
So what I ask of my fellow OCN users is some suggestions. If reverting things back to normal doesn't pinpoint it as an OC issue, what are some of the other things I can do to try and figure this out? Has anyone else experienced similar things with some similar hardware? I'm willing to try most anything.
So I leave it in your good hands, brethren! Don't let me down!
