So a week ago I did the unthinkable, I spilled a glass of lemonade over my PC and had to replace my motherboard with my old one the Gigabyte z68mx-ud2h-b3 (rev1.0).
This motherboard had worked with my CPU (i7 2600k) before without problems but wasn't set up by me at the time. Yet when installed now with an updated bios to F13 (the one before UEFI) the system BSODs at loading windows giving a generic 0x124 hardware error.
Now when I increase vcore voltage from auto to 1.240 windows starts and I only get the BSOD randomly when watching youtube and VLC, sometimes whilst gaming, sometimes not.
I've ran memtests, they check out. I've tested the hard drives and graphics card, both fine. The PSU seems fine as the system doesn't shut down, it simply BSODs and tells me my hardware is screwed (thanks windows, really helpful) and calmly creates a dumpfile and restarts.
Memory timings are set correctly, the PC won't start with optimised defaults OR fail safe defaults, ONLY when the vcore is manually changed. And since I have no experience with overclocking or setting voltages I'm pretty much lost.
Is my CPU busted or is it just the motherboard acting up?
Thanks in advance for any help given, I really can't afford a new CPU
