Im not entirely sure what's wrong. I built this PC around 4 months ago and been getting blue screens every so often. I've made sure to update all my drivers, I even took off and reinstalled the hardare and I'm still getting this issue.

is your computer overheating? Try putting it in a more ventilated space, and maybe put a few fans next to it and see if it keeps happening.

edit: also maybe try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqKwuM_7Ix4

Its not going above 70c at any given moment. And 30-35c when just browsing.

Are you overclocking anything?
Unstable overclock can mean blue screen. I usually get it when I push my GPU too hard.

Well considering that 74 is the max safe temp for the 4670K, you might want to consider upgrading your cooling.

That being said, I've hit 80 during heavy summer gaming sessions, and haven't had a BSoD once since I've have this rig. My guess is a bad piece of hardware. I used to have a sound card that would cause random BSoDs just from being plugged in.

General troubleshooting for that particular BSOD:

I'd give those a shot, I'm not entirely sure what it might be, but that just makes me want to put my money on ram lol. That crap always go wrong weird.

124 usually means you need to up the vcore because the overclock is not stable.

Looks like an unstable overclock. Reset your CPU to stock or increase the Vcore and do real stability testing with Prime95 and Intel Burn Test.

I've had that problem before, it's bad ram.

If you are using 2 ram sticks, take one out, try it out. Take the other one out, and try it. If one stick runs stable, you'll know which ram is screwy.

The last thing you want to do is run stress tests on a Haswell chip. They're connected to the heat spreader with thermal paste instead of soldier like most chips, which means that stress testing can cause the paste to dry out, raising temps and potentially destroying your CPU. AFAIK The only way to test a Haswell OC without worrying about frying your chip is to do real-world tests, like a long gaming session. That, or void your warranty and delid it.
