Question CPU causing BSOD?

Hey guys,

I recently upgraded my PC and realised the task manager was only showing 4 logical cores, so after heading into msconfig - I deselected the number of processors (which apparently worked for some people). Upon rebooting my PC I was hit with a BSOD (system thread exception not handled) which then changed to a 'bad system config info'. I've tried everything in repairs - and it won't let me reset windows. Is there anyway to fix this? Or do I have to get a new CPU (was bought from a legitimate seller).

SPECS
CPU: i9 9900KF
MOBO: ROG Strix z390 H
RAM: 4x8 Corsair Vengeance Pro
GPU: Strix 2080ti
PSU: some 700W supply

Usually the error " system thread exception not handled " will come with other file's name like atikmdag.sys, nvlddmkm.sys. Check it out again to see what you had.

Can you list which 700W PSU you had?
