    Been having so many issues with this build and it's been rough.

    Had a Corsair HX1000 psu that was loud and an i7 6700k that I thought had high vcore so I returned them.
    Keep in mind the system was stable though, passing 36 hours of memtest86 v7.1 with no errors with no OC on cpu, but ram at it's xmp speed of 2666.
    Prime blend also ran on this system for 24 hours with no errors and a max temp of 76c.

    Turns out I was mixing up VID and Vcore and the Vcore was actually fine.

    So today I went back to the micro center and replaced that cpu before realizing the mistake I made about VID and vcore and also replacing the Corsair psu for the 1 I listed in current specs at the top of this post.

    The Corsair psu was also ok btw, but I just thought it was defective because the relay click sound was just a little loud, but voltages were stable in HWinfo64 during prime.

    So after getting home I put the new cpu in and the Coolermaster psu and fired up Prime. In less than 10 minutes it got an error so I panicked, but googled and decided to try setting the ram back to basic speed instead of XMP.
    I didn't adjust any other settings related to the cpu or ram. I fired up Prime again to see if it would still get errors with the ram at basic speed so I could possibly rule out the ram which already passed memtest. Was really hoping I just got a bad cpu.
    Then things got really interesting and in just a few minutes the temp running Prime went to 100c. Stopped the test immediately and was lucky no crash or reboot or fried cpu, but it scared the crap outta me. No errors in Prime though, but the Vcore had gone up to 1.44 which is what made the temp go so high and the cpu was only at stock speed of course.
    The heat sink was definitely seated right since the idle temp went right back down instantly to 26c.

    What should I do now? Did I just get a bad cpu? Could this new psu be the issue? Did my ram that previously passed memtest 36 hour run just a couple days ago got damaged somehow? Could it be the motherboard failed or got ruined?

    Please help. I'm not a super noob, but I'm not very advanced either and have built systems before, but only basic setup with no tweaking or OC'ing. Just buying good parts, installing Windows and using them.
