    The CPU was running at 4.33 GHz when the crash occurred. The L1 Cache is blamed in every 0x124 dump. This is generally seen in case of a Hardware Failure or insufficient cooling.

    Before proceeding further, kindly make sure that you are not overclocking the system. In case you are overclocking, kindly reset the BIOS to STOCK settings.
    Please report back with the result of running Prime95 using the below guide (thanks usasma) -

    Prime95 download site:
    GIMPS - Free Prime95 software downloads - PrimeNet
    Prime95 Setup:
    - extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
    - double click on the executable file
    - select "Just stress testing"
    - select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
    - "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
    The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
    Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
    Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85șC. If it does, then you probably have a CPU cooling problem.
    - CPU temps exceeding 60șC can cause errors in Prime95. Fix the cooling solution first, then run Prime95 again.
    This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
    The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
    NOTE: Errors should be considered when:
    - the system BSOD's during Prime95
    - the system freezes during Prime95 (this is different than the extreme slowness caused by the program using all your RAM and CPU)
    - the Prime95 program crashes
    - the Prime95 program shows errors in it's display
    - there are errors in the Prime95 results file
    More details on the use of this test: Torture test your CPU with Prime95

    Also, report back with the result of the Intel Burn Test using the below link -
    IntelBurnTest - The new stress-testing program

    Let me know how it goes ^_^

    Hi Pranav! , i changed Ai tweak options from manual (tho i didnt oc) to auto and now it runs at 4.00 GHz. I started Prime95 and it already shows an error (Worker#8 - Not running FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.4921875, expected less than 0.4).

    Try the Intel Burn test as well. If you are getting error in that as well, then it's probably a bad CPU. But, make sure that your temperatures are stable and not high. I use CoreTemp to monitor my temperatures.

    Also, see if you are still having the problem, if you underclock the CPU.

    Prime95 says that it found loads of errors and are probably caused by the hardware. I would suggest you to RMA this CPU if it is still under warranty and get a new one. If using a laptop, kindly send it to the service center.
