    Cpu error "PCH" test fail.

    I got this error with my i7 4790k @ stock.
    Is this normal?
    Could it be that my bios version is not supported?
    It works in games but never goes above 60 procent.

    Do you have your SATA ports set to AHCI in your BIOS? They need to be AHCI and also have Intel Rapid Storage Technology installed.

    Also make sure your motherboard BIOS is the latest version.

    Hope this helps
