    Exclamation Is my CPU Dead?

    Hello Everyone

    So, I recently got a new PC with a i7 8700k, Corsair DDR4 3200MHz 2x8GB RAM, Samsung 960 EVO M.2 500GB SSD, ASUS GTX 1070Ti Strix and a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 Mobo at first.
    After like 2 Weeks of working relatively well (I had a problem once that it won't post already but I managed to get it up again) it crashed during a Game of RSS.
    The Screen Froze and my Second screen showed Black.
    I wasn't able to get it up again since Monday Evening.
    The Motherboard showed a error 4F but this one wasn't defined in the Manual so I contacted the Gigabyte support which told me that I have to reset the CMOS (Which I already did like 10 Times).
    I managed to get in to the BIOS two times but every time i got in, the System froze and crashed again.

    My first guess was that the Motherboard was faulty, so I got myself a Maximus X Hero to try it out.

    This time I didn't put my Video Card in and only used the Onboard Graphics. --> Same Result

    I used different RAM Slots and also only with a single module and still not able to post.
    The Board shows me the Q-Code 09, 62 or sometimes 98.

    Does Anyone have an Idea what component is faulty or if I got a second dead motherboard

    Thanks a lot!
