So, I started up internet explorer, stopped the page from loading, went to the task manager, right-clicked on iexplorer.exe, selected affinity, unselected cpu1 and my problems went away. I could browse to my hearts content. selected only cpu 1 and the problems were back. This was the same with my video issues. I haven't been able to test the souond as I don't know how to perform this on drivers.
So comes my question. I plan on RMA'ing this cpu but does anyone know of a way to globally setting affinity to one cpu or the other?
Well it seems that you have indeed found the error causing all your problems. I mean even if there was a way to set the afinity to global on die 2 I would be mad that die 1 is defective. So therefore I would actually RMA it first thing and make sure your problem gets fixed. But make sure to give your last bit of the story to amd, about how you changed cpu afinity to only find that once the programs were on die 1 they would crash constantly. http://www.amd.com/us-en/Corpo...utAM...592_712,00.html
