I7 6700k instability

My build that I have been running for over 4 months is now BSOD. No changes to hardware in over 2 months since adding a 1080GTX. I believe the cause on my BSOD is the CPU itself. Troubleshooting below

Receiving various BSOD crash errors. Including clock watchdog timeout.

Specs:

Graphics Card: PNY 1080 GTX

Mother Board: ASUS Maximus VII Hero

RAM: Corsair dominator platinum DDR4 3000MHZ

Power: 1200w Silent Pro Gold

CPU: I7 6700k

Troubleshooting:

- Tested without video card still BSOD

- Reset Board to factory defaults. Still BSOD

- Swapped out Ram to known working ram in another machine and tried one stick. Still recieving BSOD

- Tried replacing each computer part out with a known working part. Still received BSOD until switching I7 with a known working CPU. BSOD then stopped occuring.

- Tested faulty I7 in another known working machine and BSOD started to occur in known working machine.

Tried doing a warranty replacement but the system appears to be down

Hello sineyopity,

 

 

I will be more than glad to help you with your request.

 

 

Before we can proceed to complete any warranty process I would like to confirm with you:

 

 

The issues that you are facing, they are with one specific application or you can see it with everything that you run?

 

 

Is there a chance that you can provide me with any screenshot, in case if the issue it is located at a specific game or application?

 

 

Have you done any overclocking to your processor recently?

 

 

Once that you reply to me I will continue working with your request and if its needed we will try to help you with the warranty process.

 

 

Hope I can hear from you soon.

 

 

Regards,

 

Angie

This is on bootup. The first crash happened after trying to watch a youtube video. The audio froze and BSOD occurred. Now whenever I try to boot the system BSOD when loading windows.

Is there a chance that you can provide me with any screenshot, in case if the issue it is located at a specific game or application?

Have no screen shots as I can not get the cpu to boot without BSOD occurring.

Have you done any overclocking to your processor recently?

Have only been using default settings in the bios. No overclocking.
