Are all of your components brand new?

Picked up a Corsair CX850M 850 watt PSU, but no change in the issue. I went ahead and initiated an RMA with Intel, and will be obtaining a replacement CPU next week. Stay tuned!

Yeah, Blast3D, i've had the same issues you've been having.
Please post back here if the replacement from Intel does the trick.
What'd you tell them to RMA it? I'm wanting to RMA mine but it's hard to say it's exactly faulty. I feel after going through 6 or so motherboards, that my CPU (which has been replaced once) may be the culprit?

I explained to them my process of elimination about checking each component and narrowing it down the the mobo or cpu, and after providing my cpu's info, they were able to initiate a warranty claim.
Soo update, I recieved and installed my new 6700k replacement, and the computer instantly booted up and ran fine. However, I am currently running cpuid HWMonitor and notice my Vcore appears high - from what I understand shouldnt this be below 1.4 if I am not running an overclock (bios shows all settings at default, and I loaded UEFI defaults.
Any input on this would be great, I would hate to fry a cpu!
Bios is showing a lower value - thoughts?
One more edit! I just remembered that when I assembled the PC I installed pretty much all included software from Asus, including AI Suite III, which if I remember correctly, ran an auto-overclock at some point. I remember resetting it as I decided against overclocking at the time, and would rather go through bios if needed later.
I have since uninstalled AI Suite and some of the other included software, but could this be a cause/source of this issue?
Also, I just realized I'm running Bios version 0214, which is the first release bios? I'm assuming it would be best to update that as well.
