Intel Prime95 can cause Intel Skylake CPUs to freeze

I suppose I would be more concerned that this doesn't just affect Prime 95... though I wonder if this would explain the BSOD I experienced running at stock.

Intel was quick to track down and identify the issue, and says it's working with motherboard vendors to issue BIOS updates as a workaround:

Intel has identified an issue that potentially affects the 6th Gen Intel® Core™ family of products. This issue only occurs under certain complex workload conditions, like those that may be encountered when running applications like Prime95. In those cases, the processor may hang or cause unpredictable system behavior. Intel has identified and released a fix and is working with external business partners to get the fix deployed through BIOS.
