    Problems with Intel Core I7-4790K processor


      Hello everybody.


      I have some problems with my Intel Core I7-4790K processor. I got random freezes and blue-screens so I decided to reinstall my computer hoping it would fix it, because last time one of my drivers got corrupted and it fixed it then.


      However after the re-installation it still is not working correctly where people suspected multiple errors on my Hard drives, but all proven clean by tests.


      Here is the information I have for the computer if it helps, problem will be futher explained after the list.

      So I have been playing games and had random freezes in games, so I decided to clean it up like it normally works. Little surprise it didnt ofcourse. After that reinstalling was the best option to do, since it happened some time before that the driver got faulty after the cleaning.

      However it didnt fix it, I still got the screen-freezes and BSOD.


      I tested all the aboving things on faultyness (memorytest, fantest, GPU-test) but it didnt trigger the problem.


      After testing a program that tested the CPU I got an instant response by a computerfreeze and a BSOD. I have 2 BSOD in here.


      I have tested the following and gave errors:


      Prime95 - BSOD when turned on (exactly that moment), Screenfreeze.

      Intel Diagnostics - Test Failed,


      Temperature Monitor Stopped


      Temperature Monitor Failed

      IPDT64 Failed

      --- IPDT64 - Revision:

      Hopefully somebody can help me with this and if necessary I will give information where needed futher.
