Have you recently installed new hardware?

The dump file indicates it is a hardware issue whether it be failing hardware or a driver is another question. It is presenting 0x124_GenuineIntel as a culprit but lets check your sys log...

What type of events are you seeing in the system log?

it says :  
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)  A fatal hardware error has occurred

it may be caused by the cpu - or motherboard.
try removing, and re-installing the cpu (you may have to renew the heat paste)

also  - is it always the same error?
