Default Edmonton area help

PC went wonky today. After troubleshooting I suspect my CPU is done.

Anyone local mind helping me out? 1151 socket. You provide the cpu, I'll provide the beers

Edit: Big city is big, location might help. I'm more St Albert than Edmonton. Near the Enjoy centre.

Sorry Sagath, I've got a spare 4690, but that won't do you any good. Maybe try putting a post in OT or Rants, on the off chance you catch someone in a higher-viewed subforum?

Thanks anyways FK.

On the advice from the other mods I'm gonna replace the PSU. It's brand new evga g3, but all the components are new, and it's a lot cheaper than buying a new 8700k. And at worst I'll end up with a spare psu which is always handy.

As suspected, it was the CPU.

Thanks for the PM's, help, and advice. We've got a great community here.
