    BSOD whea_uncorrectable_error 0x124 Randomly/while gaming.


    Hello,

    I recently bought new hardware to upgrade my system. New motherboard, SSD, i7 processor, RAM, GPU and HDD. After installing Windows 8.1 and required drivers/chipset I started to get BSOD whea_uncorrectable_error 0x124, while gaming and also randomly. I've been lurking this forum the past week following guides on this specific BSOD but without an solution. Tried reinstalling Windows, GPU tests/RAM tests/CPU tests. all of the tests came back without error.
    I think it might be a driver which isnt working correctly or an conflict of sort. I have also this strange sound error while it randomly turns off in-game/while watching streams. Not sure if this has something to do with it but I have never had this problem before and it worked before I upgraded the PC. It might be a conflict between my ASTRO A50 and the default drivers of the motherboard.

    I have attached a .zip as instructed. (I'm from Sweden and it seems that some of it are in swedish, not sure if I can change this somehow?)

    Hi Victor1,

    Welcome to the 8forums.
    Before I analyse the ZIP, since you upgraded your hardware, have you checked your BIOS and set it to "load optimized defaults"?

    Hi Axe0,

    Yes, the BIOS settings is set to load optimized defaults.

    Are you running CPU overclocked?

    Hello Chummy,

    No, I'm not running CPU overclocked.

    Thanks,

    So I just ran the Prime95 CPU stress test and I got BSOD whea_uncorrectable_error 0x124 immediately. What does this mean? Is the CPU defect?

    124 BSOD code is lack of vcore when overclocking, but since it ocurring in stock maybe this is a bad BIOS default settings for CPU or maybe a bad chip.

    You can update the BIOS to latest one to try if solve the problem. Since this Board and chip are designed to overclock i suppose you have knowledge of BIOS settings and all CPU voltages options. If you know then try some manual voltages for CPU vcore, CPU cache voltage and CPU Input Voltage. If you're not a advanced overclocker user then avoid it to prevent any permanent damage and just try a BIOS update or send your chip to RMA.

    What CPU frequency and vcore is BIOS applying when you stressing the CPU with prime or another app? Another thing is the Temperature at good level?

    Please use HWinfo64 to read voltage, temps and Frequency, since this software is the best designed for Reading Haswell voltages.

    Dont use prime to stress Haswell. Use Aida64, Realbench from Asus or some Video encoding software.

    I have updated the BIOS to the latest version. I had no clue that this board/chip were desgined for overclocking. I'm not an advanced overclocker and I have no need to overclock. Could the 'optimal default settings' of the motherboard be set to overclock?
    I did an CPU stress test using RealBench 2.4. I will attach an image of temp/frequency/voltage. Maybe you could tell me if it's overclocked or not.

    The temps are OK, you just forget to show another voltages from HWinfo which should stay below this last image, at Sensor Tab. There will be voltages like Vccin, vcore....

    But Vid already explain something about Vcore, maybe the chip is not too good to apply only 0,99v at 3.5ghz, but BIOS is feeding that voltage.

    Since Bios is updated, and if you dont pretend to set manual voltages to test, the only/best alternative is RMA the chip to see what they say.
