When I start playing a game or if I am watching a youtube video I get this error all the time. I have updated all of my drivers and can't find any solutions. Here is my setup:http://pcpartpicker.com/user/poopoopadoop/saved/rrdFf7

Your machine is quite a good setup, and is far more powerful than needed for most games of today. And definitely, your computer can watch 4K or HD video smoothly.
I found this over at MSDN:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardwar...(v=vs.85).aspx It's a technical explination of the error. What scares me is what they say the cause is:

Cause

The specified processor is not processing interrupts. Typically, this occurs when the processor is nonresponsive or is deadlocked.

In other words, this error means that your CPU is simply not processing instructions. My guess is you have some defect in your machine. Lower your CPU/RAM frequencies back to stock if you are overclocking. If you can, try contacting ASUS or Intel about your problem.

This isn't about Watch Dogs. The error is called Watchdog, but it has nothing to do with Watch Dogs.

I did this and I think it worked! I haven't been able to play any games for about two weeks. It turns out I accidentally changed something in the bios.

I dont mean to hijack your thread, But I did not see a start new thread thing so I wanted to ask about my clock watchdog problem.

My 4790K is overclocked to 4.90 and I only get this error when I use the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and run the benchmark
program they have. Im sure its the OC and not that anything is wrong with my CPU on the inside ????

No Problem. Try disabling your overclock and running the benchmark. The 4790K is already quite the cpu, and it will perform very well at stock speed. I'm impressed that your computer can run stable for so long under such an overclock.
