So this latest used 6950x was stable and great since I got it, but it died on the 15th while just sitting idle overnight. I was on default bios settings since I was playing with memory timings a few days prior and failing at it. My eventlog showed a hardware error reported at 350am and when I woke up and got down to my PC at 9am to work, it was powered off and wouldn't post. Bios Q-Code was reporting "00" and the machine would shut off after failing to post.

I reseated the CPU a few times, but no luck.

I swapped back to my old 5930k, that's working fine and am seeing if the seller has any other chips.

Not sure why it's so hard to get a good 6950x :(

I got my 6950X from AliExpress couple of months ago, from a recommended seller, and the thing has been rock stable since. I don't know if it is a top overclocker, but I keep it at 4.3GHz and 1.25v on air -- it could probably run at even lower Vcc, but haven't spend time for it yet. The mobo is ASRock X99 Extreme 6/3.1
