    What are you system specs/ bios voltages. You may need to change your DRAM voltage. I encountered this and it was due to my DRAM voltage being too low.

      what size fft's were you running?small fft's errors are usually cpu vcore related
      large fft's error's are usually memory and NB related(timings/vdimm/vNB).
      if you run blend check and see where it fails at small/large fft's.
      if it just crashes or BSOD/restarts its most likely a memory problem

        only the 4th core? - sounds like that core is a dud! (or your OC)
