That is a really annoying design flaw. Not sure how to test it otherwise.

Did you happen to catch the BSoD code? I would be it was 124, which is too low voltage. The VID voltage range is 0.800-1.375V for that CPU. I would guess bumping it up to 1.000 or so might help.

yes the BSOD code was a stop 0x000124 it always is... so how do I do it safely? I just move the volt in the bios?

Ah, that makes complete sense now, your CPU needs more voltage. You will need to boot into BIOS and bump it up about 0.25V, and run Prime95+ again until it crashes, then bump it up another 0.25V. Keep doing that until it is stable.

ok I gave it a 0.25v increase, the volts are higher on the GPU-z and the temperature of the cpu are getting about 10degrees warmer than before on Idle

That sounds a little extreme, but is it stable?
You might just have a bad CPU as well.

I dunno...but now the default voltage on bios says 1.50v so far so good ...as I mentioned I can't do prime 95 until tomorrow because we are playing on the pc still... and we have not gotten any bsod yet.
