    Could it be my cpu is dead? Is there any way of saving it? And would my motherboard be ok still?

    Cheers guys.

    5 short ------------ Processor error ------------- The system CPU has failed

    Unless you have another motherboard to test your only options are to have a tech place test it for you or RMA it.

    It could be board itself not a CPU. Test both parts individually.

    Spot on mate.

    Had an old borked board laying around, and gave it a try. Bingo it worked.

    * When I say borked, I mean a couple of memory channles don't work. *

    Cheers for the advice. :)

    CPUs don't generally die, not impossible but 99% likely the board instead

    lol, I've blown them up with conductive thermal paste on CPU pins, big flash, CPU fine, board dead

    My boss got mad and flung a chip across the shop, bounced off a couple of walls, bent all the pins, spent my lunch straightening them just to see if it still worked, perfectly fine lol
