    124 BSOD means you need more Vtt normally, or are using way to much, which I think you are using way more than you should need but this could be due to other incorrect settings.

    Can you please post me your current problematic full settings in a template from the link in my signature, then I can advise you on things to try and get going.

    I believe that code is not enough or to much qpi. I know all chips and boards are not a like, take a look at this bios and see if it helps. This was 50 passes LinX stable. I have a 4ghz bios also, just have to find it.

    just wanted to add that at a 190 blck with 1.37V vcore and 1.435V QPI/VTT the BSOD code was 0x00000101.

    Here ya go Kiteman, for future issues

    BSOD Error codes and what they mean:
    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage

    Try these settings for the ones you posted above, if you BSOD see code then see above notes.

    Advanced CPU Features:
    CPU Clock Ratio .......................... [21x]
    Intel(R) Turbo Boost Tech ................ [Enabled]
    CPU Cores Enabled ........................ [All]

    CPU EIST Function ........................ [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology ................ [Disabled] << Disabled if you do not use Vmware or Virtual PC Programs
    Bi-Directional PROCHOT ................... [Enabled]


    Uncore & QPI Features:
    QPI Link Speed ............................ x36
    Uncore Frequency ......................... x17 << x18 may help, try if you have not or you think x17 could be an issue. Also test x16 as well if both continue to give you problems. (I only use 2x +2 myself)
    Isonchronous Frequency ................... [Enabled]


    Standard Clock Control:
    Base Clock (BCLK) Control ................ [Enabled]
    BCLK Frequency (MHz) ..................... [190]

    CPU Clock Skew ........................... [0ps]
    IOH Clock Skew ........................... [0ps]


    Advanced DRAM Features:
    Performance Enhance ...................... [Standard] << This can cause problems sometimes, unlike older gen boards. So please go ahead and try Turbo or Extreme (I only use EX even at 2100+)
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) ........... [8.0]
    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) ............. [Quick] < Use expert, and set each channels main timings one by one. This helps also let you know if you have failing channels, you will see - or N/A on any failing channel in the MAIN Timings.

    x124 normally means to increase VTT or Vcore. But before we do that I think we need to fix a few things. Your RAM is rated as 1.65v but you got 1.6v. Id raise that to 1.66 (since there is no 1.65 in the bios) first.

    Take CPU PLL to 1.840V (small bump there)
    QPI PLL to 1.200V (small bump here)
    IOH CORE you already have at 1.200V which is fine
    ICH CORE to 1.140V (another small bump)

    Id probably also bring the QPI/VTT back down 1.435V that you originally had in your first post since we bumped up a few minor items and got your RAM running at full 1.65v instead of 1.6v.
