In order to discard the processor as the issue, I would recommend testing this processor in another motherboard. If you do not have a spare motherboard, you can test it on a friend's motherboard or by taking the processor to a local computer store for them to test it for you.
Thanks for the tip. The problem is, its a 1366 processor, and no one around here seems to have those kinds of boards. Most have my friend's have 1156, and I even stopped by a few local computer stores, they told me they would have to send it off to a service center since they didn't have any 1366 boards to test it with. Any recommendations, or places to go in the Phoenix area? I know Intel has fab center in Chandler, AZ, I don't assume they could help test it there? Thanks.
Unfortunately the only way to determine if the processor is the one causing the issue is be testing it on a 2nd motherboard, or testing another processor on your system.
Currenlty we do not have any tool to test the processor.
