    Default What does my BSOD mean?



    Happened while overclocking GPU, pushing it too much slightly?

    I'd say it means you should probably stop overclocking it.

    0x124s happen often if clockspeed is too high, temps are too high, or voltages are too low.

    124 is usually to low/high vcore or qpi if your on Intel, don't know what it means on AMD, take a look here this is very handy

    I've had a couple of the exact blue screens today when I was overclocking my cpu. For me it was voltage too low.

    Cool thanks for replies, I am hoping that BSOD relates to my GPU and NOT my CPU.

    Time will tell I suppose.

    EDIT Bah just got a 101 now also, after only 5 minutes of MS flight. Gonna run with no OC on my GPU's for a while and see if I still get one.

    BSOD would be more likely related to CPU, or am I wide of the mark here? IN my experience GPU errors of this ilk result in artifacts, hang ups and restarts but generally not BSOD?

    Blue Screens can be caused by anything really! CPU, RAM, GPU (VRAM or other), HDDs, PCI-E cards, etc., etc.
