    Might be worth checking for a bent pin in the CPU socket.

    It was mentioned earlier, or at least somewhere on this forum, that the CPU, PSU and mobo are 1 of the most difficult causes to pin down to. A suspicious most of the time just isn't enough.

    Also, if it would be the PSU, I would expect it to fail after equal periods of time under load, not randomly.
    Reality proofs that the PSU could cause issues appearing random too.

    Will do the dump file and then check the socket.

    Strange BSOD this........at this stage I would suspect motherboard software (AI) being the issue.....but that has been ruled out correct?

    As axe says, not all 0x2124's are hardware.....I have seen 0x124's using a beta-Chrome Browser before. Sounds exotic, but you might have to look at other oddities that would not normally be associated with 0x124's.

    Looking at the MSINFO, I noticed 7 partitions on the SSD....is it worth looking into that? Im just guessing now, since most stuff seems to have been covered.

    Have you tried the maximum test of Intel Burn Test by any chance? If so, did it pass?

    One thing I've always done for testing faulty hardware is to always have a second system handy that works perfectly fine. Then I would start swapping components between systems to find the culprit, but I know that not everyone is able to keep a spare system handy.

    You're board is a ROG Strix Z270G MATX board right? After looking at many reviews, looks like this board has tons of problems. Bluetooth failures, memory issues. If you want proof, go to Newegg and read the user reviews on this board.

    Another thing I've heard to do to troubleshoot issues, is to actually turn off cores on the CPU. instead of running 4 cores and 8 threads, you could run 2 cores and 4 threads.

    Although it's getting to the point to where you may want to get replacements.

    Yet you could go into device manager and disable some components that may not be in use that could cause hardware failures. "Ethernet, Bluetooth, unplug all USB devices except your keyboard and mouse, Wireless adapters if you have any. You could also disable the sound card on the board as well"

    These are all ways to do the process of elimination, plus disabling all non Microsoft services and programs in Windows.

    Sorry we haven't been able to make any progress in finding a solution to your problem. Hope we find one for you soon.

    Yes, that's right. All Asus software like AI Suite, Aura etc is removed. Maybe there is a chance that I missed one of these utilities, but don't think so. Will check again when reach home.

    I have dual boot with Windows 10 and Manjaro Linux. Five partitions are for Linux:
    /boot/efi
    /boot
    /
    /swap
    /home

    I wansn't going to use Windows a lot in the first place... But now I am forced to use it for debugging Could a bunch of additional partitions really be a reason for 0x124? That would surprise me a lot. Maybe I need to reinstall Windows in this case?

    No, I didn't try the Intel Burn Test.Not sure if it's much different from Prime95, but I will give it a try.

    I would also be surprised, and personally I think its doubtful that is the cause, but....I'm just looking at oddities and throwing out suggestions because you have almost exhausted everything and are at the point of having to accept its a hardware issue.....which is always troublesome.

    I don't think a dual boot with Unices would cause this issue, so I don't think a reinstall of Windows is needed....it will probably interfere with GRUB anyway....?

    IntelBurn is really quick to run and will stress that CPU ..... perform 5 to 10 runs and check that all the residual results are the same.

    Yeah, would be cool if I had one. Maybe I can ask someone to help me in this matter. Not sure though.

    In all honesty I don't even know why I went with this board and all it's shit features that I will never use. It just looked cool and I thought "What the hack? I want it". Who knew that Asus boards are so different qualitywise.

    Disabling cores and other hardware is a cool idea. I'll try it but it will definitely take me some time to do all this.

    Really appreciate your help guys. It has become a challenge now! I am not ready to give up yet.

    Just an FYI : software proven to have caused a 0x124 BSOD which you would have sworn was a hardware issue. In these cases they were on W7 systems, but none-the-less:

    - Chrome
    - ESET
    - Gigabyte SIV

    and of course

    - outdated BiOS.

    Are you running a stable Chrome?

    Not sure what you mean. By reinstalling I meant wiping Linux partitions and go only with Windows. In this case GRUB will be removed. I don't think that reinstalling Windows and keeping Linux would interfere with GRUB... That is a different topic though

    I've put the Burn Test on my task list.
