Windows 7: BSOD when playing any game while all cores are enabled

08 Nov 2012   #1

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
BSOD when playing any game while all cores are enabled

iv been having this strange problem for the past couple of hours
i upgraded my pc
(increased ram capacity from 4 to 8gb )
(installed a new cpu fan )

the cpu in question is an AMD Phenom 2 x6 1090 T

i was using the stock fan , and had some temperature issues
so i turned off core No.5 ,No,6 to decrease temp .... and it went well
games use to run fine using 4 cores on 4 gb ram

after upgrading (and enabling all 6 cores on regular 3200 mhz ), i had no issues in normal operations (downloading , watching hd videos , browsing ,etc )

but i get a BSOD when i play any game "only when actual game starts and cpu usage increases)
list of games i tried running so far :-
Battlefield 3
Need for speed the run
Dota 2

Note that cpu temp on the time of the crash wasn't an issue
it was 40 Celsius or something like that at the time

so i traced back my steps and realized that running these games while adjusting core affinity to only the first 4 cores (or turning the last 2 cores off from bios )
solves the problem ...

after my pc crashed a couple of times i tried to run the "Intel Burn test v 2.54"
i get a BSOD 3-5 seconds after starting the rest .

so does that mean that my cpu is damaged ?
or is there any way to fix this problem ?

iv attached all the necessary files when reporting a BSOD in a zip file
hope i get a response soon , thx in advance
