    i7-8700K failed on first power on!


      I built a configuration with a MSI Z370 Carbon motherboard and an i7-8700K. On the first power on the screen remained blank and I quickly found out that the CPU Failed LED was on. I don't have any other motherboard to verify that the issue is the processor but the diagnostic seems obvious!


      Did anyone face such a radical problem with a CPU which is supposed to be the higher end of this Intel family?

      SR3QR 3.7GHZ




      Considering the number of those processors out there I guess I'm just a very very unlucky one, and the most unfortunate is that I have to wait a couple of week to go back to the place where I bought it.
