    My i7-6700k has processing issues


      Hi, I'm Jay
      I've been having this problem for quite some time now (3 months already), my i7-6700k used to work for about a year until my PC stopped functioning correctly.
      I can say it is 100% processor issue since I've tested all my components and the processor itself. At my current build, it works perfectly with a test CPU (i5-7600k)


      Here are the symptoms I get when I use my i7-6700k

      - POST and getting in to windows 10 works
      - Start up programs (Anti-virus, nVidia Geforce Experience, etc) fails to run with error codes.
      - Installing new programs does not work (fails with error codes)
      - All games fails to run (more like I can't even access the log in screen)
      - Basic hardware drivers seem to work (wifi)


      After I switched to the test CPU, everything worked fine. When I used my CPU on a different motherboard, the problems persisted.
      I'm not sure if it's an internal problem or physical damage (I dont see any), if it's an internal issue, I hope I can fix it asap...

      If you guys have any clue, please let me know.
