    Hi Johnboston1 ^_^,

    I just wanted to make sure that the processor is at the fault here and nothing else since replacing the processor is a tedious and costly process

    The latest dump file spit out that there is error in the L0 cache in the Processor #4.

    I would say that the processor is defective.

    In one of the dump files though, I saw that the Process running when crashes was the NvStreamKS which is the NVIDIA Streaming Service. Please disable that immediately as it is known to cause issues. The service can be disabled by going into "Services.msc" (typed on the Run Prompt which is accessed by Ctrl+R) and then disabling the NVIDIA Streaming Service.

    If you can RMA it to Intel, then do it.

    But, first please follow the advice suggested by Usasma and post back the results. The next post of yours should determine the root cause of the problem 99%.

    Hi Guys.

    OK here is whats happening, With Speed Step disabled and the CPU voltage manually set at 3.3311v, and Ghz is at 3.8, the computer blue-screens much less than it had been. Ive been able to run Prime95's Large FFT for 4 hours and the Small FFT test for 4 hours without crashing but still randomly get a blue-screen at other times watching a movie or gaming. I've attached some dump files. for you to look at. I'm sure there is still something wrong with the CPU so i'm going to get the numbers off it and try to see if its still under warranty. Again i want to thanks you guys for trying to help with this issue.
