    Well every BSOD referenced your L2 Cache in your CPU so its most likely just the CPU that was bad. Have you been able to get by longer than before?

    Great news!

    Give it a few days and then update this thread and mark it as solved. If you think its solved anyway, you can do so now.

    Lets hope everything works out.
