asus rog strix z590 f gaming wifi

I'm completely fed up with Asus's inability to fix crashing/freezing issues randomly while in Windows doing everyday tasks. I'm 100% convinced it is due to the crappy motherboard and the crappy Intel I7 10700k combination, and the lack of software support among these components that is causing the issues.

Ever since, I upgraded the  CPU cooler to keep my 10700k cool, switched from onboard wifi to discrete as the onboard wifi adapter was causing crashes too, had to decrease ram memory frequency to minimum to make it boot to windows without crashing due to crappy memory support.

What else the USER of this stupid product supposed to do in order to just have it run smoothly???

I'm a Web Developer I don't care about gaming I just want a durable product which is capable to run Visual Studio and Google Chrome, is it so hard to fix ever since???

Here are my specs:

Motherboard: Z590-f Gaming Wifi

Kernel Power Errors are normally the result of some other event.  Does anything else show up in the Event Viewer?

You might try running the command below in a run box.  It might give you a better picture of what might be happening.  You can highlight specific days for indications of what happened.

Have you tried actually testing your memory stability with something? Looks like an unstable overclock if you had to reduce memory frequency...

Try Karhu RAM Test.

For many years, I have been a loyal user of ASUS motherboards. So, when it came time to upgrade my motherboard, I didn't hesitate to purchase the ROG STRIX Z590-F GAMING WIFI Motherboard in August 2023. However, this motherboard has been a disappointment as it constantly freezes. It doesn't matter if I'm actively using it or if it's left idle for a while (overnight), it becomes completely unresponsive. The LED lighting on the motherboard also remains static during these freeze-ups. Only when I press the power button to power off and the CPU fan stops, the LED lighting starts changing colors again. It's quite bizarre.

I've searched various online articles for solutions, but none of them have provided a satisfactory fix. I've also ensured that I'm running the latest BIOS version 1801. Just when I was about to give up and consider replacing the motherboard, I noticed that ASUS had released a new BIOS version 1903 on their official website. I updated the BIOS, but unfortunately, the issue persisted.

Finally, I had a hunch that perhaps the motherboard was going into a deep sleep mode and struggling to wake up. So, I decided to prevent it from sleeping altogether. I went into the BIOS settings and disabled CPU C-State (disable CPU Power Management). I also disabled sleep mode in Windows 10. Surprisingly, this seemed to resolve the problem. While I'm not sure of the exact cause, it's possible that some adjustments are needed in the BIOS or on the motherboard's circuitry by ASUS. Nonetheless, for now, I can use my system without it freezing, providing a temporary solution to the motherboard issue.

Has anyone else experienced a similar problem?

Well, my 11700k running at 5,2 ghz at all cores at 350w is perfectly stable on my z590-f.
No issues at all, so I don't think the statement that it is a crappy board holds true at all.

Try unplugging your usb devices, maybe that will help.
