    My system:

    Q9550 E0 @ 4.03GHz (475x8.5) 1.296v
    GA-UD3P F7
    Mushkin 4GB DDR2 1066 @ 950 1.98v
    Geforce 8800GT 182.08
    Corsair HX640
    Vista x64 with latest updates

    My problem:
    Random times, I would get a BSOD [0x00000124] at windows startup, just once the desktop appears, BSOD happens, at this stage, there is no much stress happening to the system so I wonder what is causing this BSOD. I read maybe it is the 8800GT causing it.

    This PC passed this tests without problems
    OCCT CPU Stable 5H
    Prime 95 Bend Stable 5H
    Linpack 15 passes
    Cinebench R10 64 @ 50 Runs
    3DMark06 @ 50 Runs
    memtest 86 @ 2 passes

    So I really wonder about this BSOD which occur at windows startup just before loading my deskop.

    My settings:
    ******Motherboard Voltage Control******

    Load-Line Calibration...........................[ Enabled ]
    CPU Vcore [ 1.21250 ]...................[ 1.32 ]
    CPU Termination [ 1.20 ]...................[ 1.28 ]
    CPU PLL [ 1.50 ]...................[ 1.50 ]
    CPU Reference [ 0.760 ]...................[ 0.810 ] ---> ET6 reads 0.760

    MCH Core [ 1.100 ]...................[ 1.30 ]
    MCH Reference [ 0.760 ]...................[ 0.810 ] ---> ET6 reads 0.760
    MCH/DRAM Refernce [ 0.900 ]...................[ 0.960 ] ---> ET6 reads 0.870
    ICH I/O [ 1.500 ]...................[ 1.500 ]
    ICH Core [ 1.100 ]...................[ 1.100 ]

    DRAM Voltage [ 1.800 ]...................[ 1.980 ]
    DRAM Termination [ 0.900 ]...................[ 0.960 ] ---> ET6 reads 0.870
    Channel A Ref [ 0.900 ]...................[ 0.960 ] ---> ET6 reads 0.870
    Channel B Ref [ 0.900 ]...................[ 0.960 ] ---> ET6 reads 0.870

    What do guys think, maybe adding some volt to the NB/CPU or changing some references might help?

    Try running the system at stock at see if it does the same things. And give resetting the CMOS a try.

    I reckon its the 475 fsb aint alot of mobos that can achieve near on 500fsb i know the rampage can most struggle over 450 id say the northbridge is gonna need adjustment for anything that high but this will also drive overall cpu temp up too.

    To my knowledge, 0x124 indicates that your system is not stable somewhere. I recommend adjusting your GTL voltages a bit and/or increasing your MCH voltage. I know I need 1.32 / .72 ET MCH for 400fsb w/ a 400/2.66c strap and 4x1g ram

    I bumped MCH Core to 1.32v and till now no BSOD...

    I will post again to say if it completely solves the problem or not as I will need some more time.
