I have a z690 d4 plus wifi
latest bios 2305
its always done this
16gb ram and is on the accepting list of bios ram modules
I have to say this board or brand is atrocious I installed armoury crate and AI suite thinking no big deal could be pointless but no harm.
I install and the Asusfan service is crashing my computer constantly everytime run my computer froze i see in the event viewer it said "Asusfan service tryed to run"😂 then "hardware failure" on the same time exact same time!
so i uninstall everything from asus and disable the fan service thought it be fixed and was a huge improvement but still kept freezing every 30 minutes sometime it was a few hours sometime it was 10 minutes.
Event viewer says Hardware failure
never once crashed playing games only idle or browsing obviosuly low usage drops to low voltage or watts?.
Now for the bit thats important even tho asus should really fix their software unbelievable making software freeze ur computer
now this might help other with issues
i disable c state its all fixed. no more freeze on idle why is this?
everything is stock in bios
is this a cpu problem will an RMA fix it?
does n e 1 know the issue?
im stunned asus released a bios version and cannot do basic tasks like browsing without a freeze and power off and on is required!
ive had this pc for a year and only just trying to fix it now. i only play games mostly and doesnt crash
im probably getting an extra 5 watts cpu maybe less with c state disabled and i see the watts ramp up when c state enabled so i dont know if the average is alot less maybe 3 - 6 watts? dont mind the extra watts 3 - 6 watts for 30 mins 😂
do n e pros know what to do?
will this affect my cpu ? if it cant handle c state enabled is it faulty?
i really dont want to RMA it (waste of time) if it works as it should
im typing this on my PC now and no crash so far wooho. it used to crash alot when im typing on forums
basically the problem is when C state disabled my computer doesnt freeze when browsing or idle
thank u very much
i have same problem with 12900k and z690 strix f, samsung 980 pro ssd it freeze when idle if enable c-state.
what's your ssd brand?
I saw many posts with similar problems on internet use z690 with Samsung ssd but it's just my guess.
If you didn't overclock your CPU and disabling c state can solve it, that means you lost the silicon lottery. The voltage supplied by the motherboard is lower than the normal operating voltage of your processor. It occasionally happens on non-K CPU but seldom on unlocked ones. Applying positive voltage offset for CPU core voltage may solve it.
Yes the computer is unplayable when browsing or writing an email with c state enabled. I nearly bricked my phone when I was installing firmware on it but miraculously didn't when my computer froze.
And it be impossible typing a word document on it
