So after 11 years of service I suspect my CPU is dying. However everything else works and actually were refreshed 2 years ago.

What would be a good CPU & MOBO combo to use with the following parts:
  • 5 slots of DDR3 RAM; PC3-10700 667Mhz
  • GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
  • PSU 650W (80 efficiency)
Option notes. (I'm aware beggars cannot be choosers with legacy stuff).
  • USB 3 port
  • More USB ports the better.
  • More SATA (2) port the better.
It is currently replacing:
  • Intel i7-920
  • ASUS P6X58D Premium
Computer is for gaming, streaming (720p), and mostly video encoding. Thank you. I'm not in a rush to get it for Xmas or anything.
