I built my computer 4 days ago. It worked fine until the 4 day when i was playing and then i got a clock_watchdog_timeout while playing a game and now the computer doesn't start it just gets either clock_watchdog_timeout or check_machine_exception. I updated bios and tried installing windows again, but it blue screens on the install screen. I put a new layer of thermal paste if that would have been the problem. I used E1 IC Essential that is very cheap. But everytime i put the water cooling head on it spreads the paste very badly. I haven't overclocked knowingly at all. But im not sure how to even in the asus bios. I also put the voltage down for the prosessor but to no effect
The prosessor is only 4 days old so it could be a defect?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
