    WHEA error for a MCE fault
    This could point to hardware problem with your CPU but more often also motherboard software and monitoring software can cause this kind of BSODs.
    In this case it's an internal unclassified error, which means it's not publicly documented (which is ironic given it's "unclassified"). However, yes, it's clear you're dealing with an internal CPU fault and not one that could be generated by bus issues or any other external factor other than heat and voltage. Though make dead sure motherboard software isn't interfering; sometimes mobo software will generate CPU faults of this sort because of bugs in their CPU drivers.
    Other than that, no, there's really nothing else you can retrieve from this.

    In your driversmodules i found these older (mobo software related) drivers.

    Driver Update Site:

    Update these drivers from the supportpage of your mobo look under utilities

    Also update Intel Manegement and intel storage driver.
    And see if you have the latest intel chipset drivers installed.

    To check/test your intel processor you could run.
    Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool (works in Windows)
    Only need to run 1 or 2 of the tests under most circumstances.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll test this cpu, don't think that is the issue, no temp problems at least Could very well be Asus software AI III issue Unfortunately it will take a clean install to completely remove. I have the latest version of everything I just installed this motherboard first part of November.

    The supportpage of your mobo has a AI III version with date of 2016/08/29, could you check if you have this version also installed.
    You would suspect that a new compatible windows 10 version would not still have these older drivers from 2010,2012 etc.
    How did you install your drivers from the inserted mobo cd or from the web.

    Yes I installed from the latest from Asus Web site, I will go get the latest Intel ME and Chipset Info files. IRST drivers from Intel, hopefully those will solve the issue. Asus has had issues with AI III and windows 10, This latest upgrade was in sept 2016 and was supposed to have solved these issue. I did install this motherboard mid Nov 2016 You probably saw that in the minidump files?
