I recently did some updates and now my computer keeps getting a clock_watchdog_timeout blue screen.
It usually happens when I play any video game, or sometimes just randomly freezing my computer.
I did some research on the error, and it mentions something about the processor. I recently updated the chipset as well with a driver. I'm running a P8P67 ASUS motherboard with an intel i5-2500k processor (not overclocked) on Windows 8.
I've attached a dmp file: http://sdrv.ms/18AzoGU
Any help would be appretiated!

It is of course of the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) bugcheck.
This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred. This bug check uses the error data that is provided by the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA).
Note that this is a hardware only bugcheck, most of the time. The only software that can generally cause this bugcheck are OS to BIOS utilities or software such as Asus' AI Suite that provide a direct bridge from the OS to BIOS to perform on the fly adjustments,
monitor voltages and BIOS settings, etc.
If we run an !errrec on the 2nd parameter which is the address of the WER structure, we get the following:
It seems an internal CPU timer failed on Processor 0 (first and primary CPU core) and Cache Bank 3. As we of course have only seen ONE *124 dumps, it's hard to make any calls in regards to the CPU possibly being the issue.
There is only so much you can do with a bugcheck like this until it comes down to a faulty processor that will need to be replaced. Start from 1 and work downward:
1. Ensure your temperatures are within standard and nothing's overheating. You can use a program such as Speccy if you'd like to monitor temps -
4. As I said above, the only usual software conflict that can usually cause *124 bugchecks are OS to BIOS utilities from manufacturer's like Asus' AI Suite. If you have something like this software-wise, remove it ASAP.
5. If all of the above fail, the only left to do is replace your processor as it is faulty.
