I got a huge problem with my 6700K. Every few hours my system completely freezes and I have to reset the system,
I am using the CPU with these hardware:
- Asus Maximus Ranger VIII
- 16GB Corsair RAM
- EVGA Classified 980 Ti
I already changed the PSU to the Corsair RM850 without a change. I also installed the newest BIOS version and re-installed Windows.The RAM is okay says Memtest.
I did not overclock anything but I have no idea what to do.
Is there any help available?
I got the following notification from engineering team: Intel has identified an issue that potentially affects the 6th Gen Intel® Core™ family of products. This issue only occurs under certain complex workload conditions, like those that may be encountered when running applications like Prime95. In those cases, the processor may hang or cause unpredictable system behavior. Intel has identified and released a fix and is working with external business partners to get the fix deployed through BIOS.
