Ok, I have a good gaming PC in my eyes. I can run everything at 1080p with 80FPS or higher. Now when I start playing games or doing something in about 30min-2hours the PC will blue-screen with BCCode: 124, now I think that's a hardware issue, I just can't figure out what.

My Rig:
AMD FX-6300 @ Stock Clock
MSi 760GM-P23 FX
8GB Corsair DDR3-1333
XFX R9 270X GPU @ Stock Clock
750W Corsair PSU

Rest of the Problem report:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 124
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: 0000000000000000
OS Version: 6_1_7601

Please help, this is getting really annoying. If it help I built this PC myself.

This problem always appears when some of the parts of cpu doesn't work well like ram, hard disk, graphic card...
Try checking your Hard Disk by opening cmd (Run as Administrator) and type "sfc/scannow"

BCCode: 124 means normally that the sistem is not stable and maybe its overhating. Have you checked your CPU and GPU temps? Have you run a stress test? If not use for the CPU Prime95 and GPU Furmark. Tell me your temps and then we could go ahead.

I did the Sfc/scannow thing and had 25 errors, I will reply back in a hour after doing heavy gaming.
