I reset the bios and am still having troubles. All my cores failed (except two who I stopped before they failed) in the same way as before via prime 95. What are the two last suggestions?
I will upload the logs for you since I am at my computer again.

One is the heat-dust combination; and the other is the power supply.

Make it sure that the computer is not having a dust accumulation inside it. Dismantle it, clean the inside. Clean the air vents and fan grills. Then check the system heat. Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
Also let us know the wattage of the installed PSU.

These two will lead us to the conclusion, I hope.

Though, the logs are not reporting any failure.

The power supply calculator suggests a 394w psu. I currently have a 600w EVGA psu.
I also feel that I should mention that I have a watt meter that mesures my computer pulling 460 watts at full load so that is my actual usage.
Amazon.com: EVGA 600 B1 80+ BRONZE, 600W 3 Year Warranty Power Supply 100-B1-0600-KR: Electronics.

This is speccy snapshot at normal use:

This is speccy snapshot running my pc at max power:

I keep my computer well cleaned. There are no dust bunnies as I blow my case out regularly.
The hottest thing on speccy was my motherboard surprisingly (not including video card).

A temp not shown by speccy was the video card ram which runs at 85c at full load.
Thanks

The PSU is sufficient, and the temps are totally under control.

In this situation, if the CPU fails, we cannot shift the responsibility to anything else, unfortunately.

Thats understandable. I have one more thing I want to try before I write my CPU of as a dud. My mobo does not have the bios to make it compatible with the latest FX series CPU's. I would most likely need to replace it with another Phenom II. In that case I would have to buy it used from someone.

My OS is OEM. Will changing out the CPU give me activation trouble of any sort?
Thanks

Changing the CPU will not cause any issue, but changing the motherboard will (activation by phone will be needed in that case).
