I built my new PC on Thursday. Played Destiny 2 for about 6+ hours on Friday when my computer suddenly restarted itself.
Booted it back up and continued for a few more hours without issue.
Saturday morning I played for about 30 minutes with the same restart.
I checked the Event Viewer and found this for both occasions:
A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor APIC ID: 0
Later Saturday night I ran a Prime95 for about 25 minutes and got the same restart and error.
I ran memtest overnight for 11 hours (3 passes) with 0 errors
Is this truely a DOA CPU (Processor Core)? Could it also be the motherboard (Bus/Interconnect Error)?
No overclocking and temps seems reasonable. Highest I've seen on gpu is 71 and cpu around 50
Any help troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated. I am at a loss.
Update: got the same crash after 2 hours 15 mins with a different PSU, so I don't think the PSU is at fault.
