    If there are issues with a CPU test then I'd guess the CPU to be at fault.

    Is there a way to know for sure? I ran Intel's cpu diagnostic tool which didn't show any problems. Any other test that will verify the CPU has issues?

    It crashes pretty consistently now on 3DMark CPU test with Time Spy. Weird that everything was fine for over a year until a few weeks ago. Then I have a bad controller on the motherboard, one dead gpu, a dead keyboard, and now possibly the CPU!

    The best way to know for sure is by either replacing it with a different one, or by testing the CPU in a different system.

    Well, as soon as I took the CPU out of the socket I could see the problem. One pin was a little off. After a bit of surgery with a magnifying glass, I pushed the pin back in place and reset the CPU. So far things are good, passed 3DMark CPU test. Hopefully this is the last of the hell I've been thru!

    Absolutely no idea how a single pin became bent. I definitely was very careful placing the CPU and did not over tighten the cooler. Very odd.


    Spoke too soon. Now I received a BSOD during the GPU test on a third run thru. I can reproduce it every time. From a cold machine, 3DMark will pass every test. After completing, launch 3DMark tests again and it will fail on the 2nd GPU test.

    Guess that I am waiting for the RMA to arrive and test that card.

    Has the CPU been checked for any damage caused by the bent pin?
    As I see it, there is a good chance this is either the CPU or motherboard causing the issue.
