Yea, at stock it would freeze during some games and even web browsing and surely while running prime. I figured it couldn've a been hardware issue but couldn't figure out what. First I thought it was my PSU, Then Memory, then Mobo... but Now I think its the CPU..
Does higher CPU/NB voltage help out a faulty IMC? Cause When I bumped it up it stopped giving me issues.
You buy your hardware and the companies put their name on it and say it should run at stock. You're entitled to hardware that runs at stock.
Talk to friends to borrow stuff, test out as much as you can. I'd almost say return everything you can (CPU/mobo/RAM). If it was unstable at stock and giving you blue screens, I'd say it would be the RAM most likely followed by the CPU. AMD has great customer service and if you can convince them that the IMC may be faulty I guarantee they'll give you an RMA (and a new stock HSF to go with it). I had a similar problem earlier while I was using an Athlon II X3 and got an RMA based on the IMC, later found out it was actually the RAM that was causing my instability.
