The Intel Atom C2000 product family had a terrible problem which would brick systems, see for example https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-cpu-failure-atom-pro... or https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/06/cisco_intel_decline...

There was also a weak transistor on some Sandy Bridge chips in the SATA controller. But these failures are really quite rare.
