Hello, I've been having random BSOD crashes with weird distorted text I can't make out on the screen while playing a video game called For Honor.

 

It seems to be happening at random, mostly after playing the game for a while the PC completely freezes and the BSOD error appears.

 

I also monitored the temperatures of my HDD, GPU and CPU while playing the game, alt tabbing.

 

The cpu seemed to always stay around 40-50C, the GPU would range from 50 up to 70 maximum, the HDD seemed to be running fine at around 27-29C most of the time.

 

Help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

It looks like only 5 of the 6 CPU cores are working.

Ah, I'm not a computer expert so I'm not sure how these things work but, what should I do to fix this issue?

You can check in your bios and see if one is disabled. Not familiar with you motherboard. If not the CPU is probably defective.

Please run these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

The very last one is a CPU test - so be sure to run that!
Please run ALL of the tests and let us know the results.
FYI - These are the tests and what we usually see for the reports:

1 - Antivirus/antimalware scans:  In short, if there are Trojans or other serious malware - start over in the Am I Infected forums
2 - Memory diagnostics:  Run MemTest86+ for at least 3 passes.  If booting from UEFI, run MemTest86 instead.  Let us know if there were any errors reported
3 - Hard Drive diagnostics:  Don't sweat the details here.  In short, run the Seagate Seatools Long/Extended test from a bootable disk.  If unable to run it from a bootable disk (UEFI and some others), then run the Seagate Seatools for Windows from within Windows.  There are no diagnostics for SSD's, just run the Crystal Mark tests and let us know if there were any failures
4 - Furmark:  run the test until the temperature stabilizes.  Don't let it get much over 90ºC.  Let us know the temp it stabilizes at and if there were any problems running the test (other than slowness).
5 - Prime95:  run the Blend test for 24 hours (this may not be possible, but run it as long as you can.  Look for errors in the output, or for problems running the test (freezes/crashes)
6 - Video 2 (other video tests):  there's several tests here.  Run all of them.  I'm especially interested in the Video Memory Test.  Let us know the results of the test(s)
  - A - simtek.org memtest
  - B - Video memory stress test
  - C - Artifact Locator
  - D - OCCT - 4 built in tests for CPU, GPU, PSU
  - E - Video Memory Stress Test
7 - CPU tests:  run at least one test on your CPU and let us know the result.
