    Thank you for the suggestion Athalayogi and yes davemon50, R5E has the option to disable cores. Just tried it and apparently Core 0 didn't load windows but using Core 1 and it loaded into Windows. Guess that sums that up. Processor is the issue. Sigh.

    Now the debate of upgrading earlier than expected with Threadripper 3 and a 3970X, was hoping to do that in the summer, or just getting another processor off from eBay and make do, even go upto a 6950X. This is the first time a processor has died on me.

    So just tried disabling cores. Apparently Core 0 seems to be the issue. I went into bios and went step by step turning on each core to check if there were any more and 7 cores and it boots each time to Windows. Very strange wonder if anyone has insights into what went wrong or happened that one core seems to be dead.

    I have no insights on single core problems but at least you isolated the issue. If you don't run a whole lot of multi-core software you might never see an impact. On the other hand it might mean the rest of the unit is ready to die too, and you could lose something. I use the 6950X in my rig, it's a nice CPU.
