I just built a new computer and once I fired it up it continued to freeze. Swapped out all parts for parts in my old pc that i know work and finally came to the conclusion its the CPU. It will freeze doing almost anything. Sometimes its when I'm starting a game or sometimes just idle. I'm able to reproduce somewhat regularly by just running prime95 and it'll freeze at some point running it within the first 5-10 minutes. exchanged the 9590 for another new one and same problem. I'm lost at what to do at this point. I've tried some of the suggestions on here for changing stuff in bios but i couldn't get it all done as I'm not too savey with overclocking/changing stuff in bios. I don't know if i should try and exchange this one also if i even can at this point or if i'm doing something wrong. I'm extremely frustrated right now.

 

Its a FX-9590 black on a asus 970 pro aura.
