    So i ran Prime 95 for a bit and i noticed that one core wasn't at 100% load, it would change to various numbers, sometime it would be 0%, 16%, 86% and then back down to 0%.

    Prime 95 said that thread has an error and that it detected a hardware failure on that thread. All other cores were running at 100% without issues.

    So what could it be?

    its usually a voltage problem, vcore, set system (BIOS) back to defaults and if it does it again, up vcore a tad.

    Yes user21, you need to go to USER CP in the menu and put your specs in, as for the OP Specs, I would assume they are in the little line under his avatar that says [​IMG]System Specs[​IMG]

    Back on topic...

    Yep, could be the cpu, then again could be other stuff. That helped didn't it.:laugh:
    What where the temps on the cpu and threads while you were running prime95?

    You might wanna try re-seating the CPU and while you got it out check the pins and stuff for foreign stuff, like, corrosion, tarnish, dis-coloring, burnt pins, caps on the MB, and all the usual could be enemys of conductivity.:)

    And, if, all looks kosher, then this:
