Hey all.


Just this past week as I was playing a game on my PC (Final Fantasy XIV), I experienced a BSOD. After this, I had let my PC idle for a few days and I received no additional BSODs. However, upon launching the game again, within 5 minutes I got another BSOD.


I decided to try running Prime95 to see if it would cause any additional BSODs, and it did. Not every time, but only if the software stopped the tests due to excessive warnings or errors before a crash. 

Within the results.txt file (which I've attached), the software shows that there were errors rounding numbers, and many, many instances of "ILLEGAL SUMOUT"



I ran FurMark a few days ago and found no issues doing so


Am I looking at a definite CPU failure, or could this still be something else?


Windows 10 x64. Was originally Windows 8, then 8.1, then factory reset it when I got 10.

AMD FX-8350


ASUS m5a99fx Pro r2.0 mobo

Corsair HX850i PSU



EDIT: Just got a BSOD while idling

Sorry for the late response... can you run the Sysnative Reporting Tool again? The log files have gotten stale.

If I do not reply in three days, please message me.
