processors almost never die, certainly not at stock speeds

its your power supply, if not then motherboard, but almost certainly not processor

tear it apart and check for blown caps, also get a hold of backup psu to verify that your sig psu is the culprit

CPU's very rarely die - As stated PSU or MB

PSU is one thing you should never cheap out on as it can take other components with it when it dies.

Do you have a spare you can use to test your parts with?

It happend the same with me. It´s the PSU. Unbranded - 720 watts, shure it is the PSU. Get a Corsair or a OCZ, their great. There´s a 430w Corsair, i believe the CX430, its SUPER RELIABLE, and mad cheap. 80+Plus Gold if i´m not wrong.

Your right! Since you all seemed so determined i ripped an old dell PSU out of the attic and BAMM fans and light! Never cheaping on that again. I probably only need like 400 - 500 watts right?
Looking on ebay (That poor!) for strictly Corsair and OCZ
Fingers crossed on a bargain
Thanks for your help guys!
