I've been having this problem for a while now. Occasionally, my PC will freeze and after a reboot a WHEA-Logger Error 1 will appear in the Event viewer.
Things I've tried:
- All drivers are up to date
- Bios drivers are up to date
- Clean windows install
- Armory crated uninstalled
- Tried different GPU (3060 Ti)
- Disabled C-States
- Disabled XMP (enabled it after getting another freeze)
- Disabled GPU Native Power Management
- Set the PCIE to Gen 3
- Synced all cores

It might be that your RAM isn't 100% stable, that can cause freezes, so I'd suggest running memory tests for a good while. MemTest should be available from your BIOS. Run for at least a full cycle, maybe 2 or 3 to be sure, see how that goes for now and report back...
By the way, if you have the ME firmware and BIOS from the support pages, that should be fine. Update Windows MEI drivers, then firmware, then BIOS... just be careful updating firmware from Windows if not fully stable. You don't want a freeze of crash while doing that! In fact, I'd check the memory first and try to find the cause for freezing before doing the firmware (and the same goes for the BIOS if you get freezes there too)
Well that's good. I don't know of a specific motherboard test, but you can try the "Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool" to test the CPU. It places quite a heavy load on it, so that might be a useful test. It tests various functions of the CPU, so it might give some clues...
If it fails, my next thought is that your cooler might be overtightened or you might have dirt in the CPU socket. That can cause bad contact with some pins and it can memory problems as well.
You could try OCCT as well. It's free and has some tests that might isolate (roughly) where the problem might be:
Im asking you cuz funny fuct right after I tried to help you, I face exactly the same issue
While gaming my PC freeze and after about 30 seconds the PC will restart automatically.
On event viewer from windows I got the same WHEA error ID 1 but also I have bugcheck 0x00000133 at the exact same time.
This is a BSOD, but I dont see a blue screen on my PC it will just pop up on event viewer.
I have STRIX Z790-F Wifi, 13700K , 32GB DDR5 5600 MHz, nothing overclocked just XMP but the XMP is actually 5600 MHz the natural frequency sopported for 13 gen intel. (12gen is 4800)
So Im lost !!!!
Also want to add first time I face this was like 6 months ago with another 4070 TI, then I tough my graphic card its the problem, I RMA with a brand new 4070TI and now I got same issue just after few months
