I have had my new PC since about January. Everything was running fine until the past three weeks. Now if I have too many web tabs open, or run any game for more than an hour. It'll crash the application and if ran again, crashes the entire computer with the error "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" Sometimes just straight up crashing first time. Some searching showed that there was an unknown fault in the processor during a certain manufacturing time frame.

 

Can confirm with several Diagnostic and stress tests by two different PC professionals, that the results narrowed down to the CPU as well. The CPU was ordered online with the rest of the PC parts and put together at home. I don't know if AMD will cover my issue, or if there's further confirmation on such an issue. Am I screwed into just buying a new CPU?
