    What would cause a 6600k to just fail?

    Snickerdoodle

      2 days ago, I attempted to boot my desktop and it just went into a power cycling loop. Nothing was being displayed on the screen and it would just turn off and back on after 8 seconds. Taking away any extra cards didn't help the situation. Using a G4400 from a friend I was able to confirm that it was just that my 6600k simply stopped working. It's not even overclocked.

       

      Is this common? What can I do to prevent this in the future?
