So I was actually looking at getting that MoBo myself, and on the newegg reviews a lot of people had issues with the bios settings, and they all found flashing the latest bios update helped, perhaps give that a shot.

The 'guide' is terrible - he may as well have just told people to use the auto OC feature with how lazy it was.

I'd recommend checking the Asus Z170 thread and going through the guides there instead.

I'd also make sure you understand exactly what you're doing and why you're changing each setting before you actually make any changes in the bios. The last thing you need is to fry your kit due to negligence.

So I'm pretty sure I've fried my CPU as it's only showing 1 core in Windows, and only Rendering with 1 core on Cinebench.

Is this a sign of a cockup or is this fixable?

I won't say yes or no (as I don't know) but might you be able to post some pictures/screenshots of your bios settings?

Another way you could check is to reset your bios settings to optimized defaults and boot into windows.

Everything is set to default.
