Is there a diagnostic program I can use to check my CPU?

I have been having problems with  video and games stuttering and initially thought it was a memory issue. So I ran MemTest86 to check.

Well long story short, I cant get through the tests on even one of my 2 sticks without it freezing up (yet showing Zero errors and always freezing at different tests in the series).

One  consistency, however, is whenever I try to run the tests on more than one of my CPUs cores (either simultaneously, sequentially or randomly... ), the program freezes almost instantly.

The one time it started to run was when I told it to run on all 8 cores at the same time, and then it gave me a list of errors because it said it couldnt start any of the cores numbered 2-8, and ran for like 16% of the first pass tests.

 

System Specs:

Mainboard =Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3

CPU = AMD FX-8350 (8-core processor 4.0GHz)

Memory = G Skill Ripjaws- 8GB DDR3 (x2 initially... then pulled one of the 8GB sticks and even swapped them with the same results on both or either stick)

Video = MSI Radeon R9 270 (x2 running crossfire)

HD = Western Digital 1TB (SATA)

Pwr Supply = 750 Watts

Audio = Onboard

OS = Windows 10 Home edition

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated
