    Get Machine_check_exception BSOD / freezes




      I bought an Intel Core i7 6700 CPU but I think it's faulty.


      I have MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION blue screens / freezes some minutes after startup, I tried on both Windows 10 and Windows 7 and I have same problem. The safe mode is unaffected.


      I returned the motherboard (Asus H170 Pro Gaming) and got it back after a repair on CPU's socket and testing by Asus but I have same problem. I have tried the memory (G.skill Ripjaws V 2x8 GB 2133 Mhz) with memtest86 (I tried removing one stick and the other), I have tried to disable every SATA drive one by one but still got the problem.


      I tried the IntelProcessor Diagnostic Tool but all tests are 'PASS', same for Prime95. I updated the motherboard BIOS and have the micropatch 74, but same problem.


      I don't know what to try anymore but I think it's the CPU's fault.


      Can you help me about this please ?


      Thank you.
