Can a damaged CPU socket cause BSOD?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Or would the PC not even start at all? I have been having lovely BSOD's about once every 4-5 weeks that you can read about here if you'd like: http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/315758-monthly-bsod-hardware-failure-no-idea-what.html

I have tested the RAM, CPU, and hard drives to find no problems. And my GPU seems to not be causing the problem as it is at full load for long periods of times on most days.

So I am stuck and wondering if I should resort to taking the motherboard out and checking the CPU and socket. The first crash happened 10 days after the PC was built so I assumed there was no damage to either of them, but well, I don't know what else to check.


Also, can an old BIOS version cause general hardware failure BSODs? Has anyone ever heard of that? Because the version of my Asus Z87 Deluxe seems to be old compared to all the versions on Asus's support site.

Thanks!

If you damaged the CPU socket pins, i doubt the motherboard will post, let alone operate properly at all. If you can run a CPU stress test and it passes then the CPU or the socket probably isnt the issue.
Good start would be to update your BIOS and any drivers too.

You should try the latest BIOS.
Did you overclock the pc?
post #5 of 20
Yeah an older bios for a newer cpu could cause bsod but that depends on what ur running and u would have seen bsod much sooner than 10 days, i would also take the cpu out and check for bent pins as AZNdud states, also what psu are u running ? a lot of the cheap psu could cause bsod where the voltage fluctuates too much which is why a lot of us keep to named psu's.
After checking cpu pins and the psu is all good and bios is up to date and still bsod then either ur overclock is unstable or ur cpu/motherboard could be on there way out.

Pins were fine when I put CPU in, but I can check again. Also, with a damaged pin, wouldn't I likely see problems more frequently than once a month? Especially since I use this PC for gaming heavily almost every day.

Also my PSU is good, a Corsair HX850.

so yes.

Even BSOD once a month? Wouldn't it seem more likely to happen more frequently with bent pins?

Depends what the bent pins are for and are very easily moved out of line, i did it once where a couple of fibers from my jumper at the elbow caught a few but was easily bent back with a razer blade and microscope lol, it is unlikely that but best to rule it out totally and ur psu is more than adequate which makes me believe its either an unstable overclock (24 hours of prime will do for 98-99% stability imo).
It could also be a bad driver, this has happened to me where i have had conflicts, c media drivers are notorious for this.
If all the above is ruled out then and u was stable in prime for 24 hours, is highly unlikly its the cpu which leaves the motherboard that u can test/RMA ?
Also do you take note of the bsod code ?, dont forget to check all plugs and sockets that they are firmly in place.

The problem is I got nothing overclocked. I evened turned turbo boost off a while ago to see if it was causing problem and still got a crash =/

Also the thread I linked in the original post has a bunch of my dump files, the dreaded 124 stop code.
