Default Think my note died in less then a month

a run down of my time line

got it as a X-mass prez for my self
3 days before Xmiss

today while playing ePSXe it rebooted out of the blue (been plaing tekken without problems from day one with my moga pro power)
and started boot looping figured maybe something happened to the rom (wicked V5 stock kernel it's fast as is)

jumped in to TWRP full wipe and flash seamed fine but boot loops after updating apps
system crashed

so i did a FULL Wipe everything ODIN back to stock it finished fine then updating apps and boot loops
then did the SD CARD unBrick Trick
still boot loops

i take it my 1 month old phone took a crap ???? any ideas

Try this, if you have an external SDcard remove it and see if that solves the problem.

If the phone detects some issues with external sdcard, sometimes it can lead to bootlooping.

Once the external sdcard is removed, do another odin flash AFTER doing a full wipe
in TWRP including factory reset before Odin flashing the official stock firmware.
After flashing the official odin flash firmware, don't root the phone yet.

If it works properly after doing the above, turn off wifi and data and just use the phone
normally for a couple hours, rebooting it once in a while just to see see if it still bootloops.

Turn off the auto-updating in google playstore and update one app at a time,
and DON'T restore any apps by using titanium or any other backup app to
make sure that none of your backed up apps are the culprit.

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

You mean overheating causing hairline cracks in lead free solder or something else? I'm sure your phone is not scratching discs.
If overheating becomes a problem, then I would have to come up with some fix.
