You can check if your CPU is bad a few ways:

1: Putting the cpu in another mobo.

2: Test your ram (run memtest), because it could possibly be your ram

3: If your overclocked, set it to stock, and see what happens

Any questions just get back to me : )

Smells like power supply issue to me. I've never seen a cpu go "bad" before, and those are the exact symptoms I've seen in many systems with a dying PSU.

Probably power... but may also be RAM.

Run Orthos for a few hours for CPU stability.
Run MemTest86 for memory testing.
Once again...

Well, i just bought a new psu, literally got it yesterday, and i got another gig of ram, so i might try taking my old ram out and testing. but the problem is, every so often my comp will just randomly shut off, and if i try rebooting, it will power up, and shut back off within 10 seconds.
